The issue is most likely not one of .pdf or .jpg file names. The "permission denied" messages is usually received when you are trying to upload a file into your account directory instead of the xxxx_html directory.

To help us resolve this problem, it would be useful for you to tell us what FTP tool you are using (WS-FTP, RootsWeb File Manager, etc.) and describe the settings as well as the steps you are taking as you go through the upload attempt.
