I'm on mobile ? How do I change it on mobile?

Mines not working. I can upload the image, but once that is done I get no further prompts to do anything. I can click the Upload from Flicker, I can't even click on my Library.

Does this require a Pro account to occomplish?

All that is on the top of my screen is the word you And when I click on it it says drafts inbox and favorites and when i click on anything it just closes the box
