Temporary uploads were always an unsupported trick that used a side effect of the old avatar baking system. With the new server-side baking system this trick isn't available anymore on regions that have server-side appearance enabled (currently Magnum and LeTigre regions.) You can still use them on other regions but they will probably be gone there too in a few weeks. The alternatives are either to use local textures (ones on your computer which only you can see) or use the Beta grid for free uploads.

The Local Texture feature is almost the same as Temporary Texture.  To use it, select the prim and face that you want to texture and then

1. Open the texture picker on the Textures tab of your Build/Edit tool

2. Click the Local button

3. Click Add

4. Browse to select a texture on your own hard drive

5. Click OK

6. Close the texture picker.

Your selected texture will be on the prim/face you selected.  More than that, if you edit the texture in Photoshop/GIMP/Whatever on your computer, it will be instantly updated on the object in world too.  The only downside -- and the big difference from Temporary Textures -- is that you will be the only person who sees the texture until you pay L$10 to do a normal, permanent upload.

This is by now (July 2017) a rather ancient thread, so there are fewer and fewer people who even remember what the old temporary textures feature was like. If someone wanders in here looking for information about the Local Textures feature that replaced it in 2013, I suggest visiting http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/User:Rolig_Loon/Local_Textures
