getting error when trying to upload an image: The file is not checked out

I followed the load and configuration instructions.  Seemed to go well.  The webpart is rendering properly.  but, when i try to upload an image, i get the error: 

The file is not checked out.  You must first check out this document before making changes.

any thoughts?

The files actually do upload.  They just don't display after uploading (the error occurs after upload as it's trying to display the picture).

Any ideas?

Check the picture library that you configured to hold the uploaded images. I'm guessing that it is in a site with publishing turned on and/or requires check-out. The code does not handle either scenario, so you need to update the code to perform the check-out & check-in or change to a picture library in a different site.
