Default Android 2.1: How to do Bluetooth File transfer to other devices?

I have upgraded my Spica to Android 2.1 (I570EXXJCF) and I have installed the application "Bluetooth File Transfer" from the Market.

After enabling bluetooth (made it discoverable, started the services FTP and OPP through the widget), Other devices can pair/connect to my phone and access my contents and send files to me.

But, I am unable to send anything to other devices !!!
In the "Bluetooth File Transfer" app, on the "Remote files" tab, it shows the other devices which have paired.
When I click on the paired device an error message pops up (after sometime of search) as shown below.

-----------------------------------------------
Service not found
You can't connect with target
device because it lacks of the
"File Transfer Profile" (OBEX
FTP) and/or the "Object Push
Profile" (OBEX OPP) Bluetooth
services.

Make sure that target device is
in DISCOVERABLE mode and
enabled to receive files!
-----------------------------------------------

I am sure that those profiles are already enabled on those devices and they are working just fine with other mobiles like nokia/sony ericsson !!

Can somebody help me to solve this and get the bluetooth file transfer working ?

Many thanks in advance...

@noworry

-- Skip that app which you installed, and kill from background if running.
-- Turn bluetooth on, make your device discoverable
-- Turn bluetooth on on another device, make that device discoverable
-- Try to exchange files in standard way, that should work.

Thanks a lot Gurdeep.. it worked !! I am able to send files from Gallery.

Any idea how to send other files from sd card, like text files/mp3 ?
I tried using ES File Explorer, but there is no option for sending through Bluetooth !!

I have no clear idea how it works for non-multimedia content since I never tried that before. Latest version of ES File Explorer do seem to address that issue, however.

Latest version...
