img src, URL, and original file names

hi. I apologize if someone's asked this before, but I'm new to fotobuilder, so bear with me:

Is it possible when viewing the pictures to have them display URL and img src info? And also, to keep the original file name when uploading pictures?

These are just some of the things I'm used to from dealing with photobucket, but as some of you may know, photobucket just had the huge crash of DEATh and it's not fixed yet and such. :/ So I remembered about LJ having image hosting and decided to try it out. Except I'm finding it really inconvienient to use for practical, everyday img hosting. O_o Like, I couldn't imagine trying to host a mood theme there and having to painstakingly search out and use the weird little "/000x17tb" code names for the pictures instead of "/happy.jpg" or "/quixotic.jpg".

Unless I'm totally misconstruing the purpose of Fotobuilder, in which case I apologize and just ignore me.

Good news, bad news

Good news: I just bought a phone that takes pictures
Bad news: I can't get it to post stuff to my LJ.
I have set up my post by mail to accept (where 1234567 is replaced my real number)
I have sent a picture to my gmail account (want a gmail account? sensible suggestions here will get one if they want it) and it got there happily.
But sending to didn't send anything to my LJ or a gallery. The gallery remains stubbornly empty.
Is there something I need to do to get the whole thing started? I have registered for the beta, I see 50MB at my disposal, but what next?
At present, there are no FAQs for fotobuilder, at least as far as I have been able to find. Can someone help me? Or should I be raising a "proper" support request?
