Just to be clear: you're keeping the directory "wordpress" intact, but making it so that what's IN that directory becomes the main site.

Go to

replace in the first field by

replace in the 2nd field by

save settings

in your ftp move all the content of the folder "www>wordpress" into "www"

If you are using Permalinks, go to the Administration > Settings > Permalinks panel and update your Permalink structure to your .htaccess file, which should be in the same directory as the main index.php file.

go to your site and see if your images are displayed. If there is a problem with your images i'll write the code to display the images


edit : the code :
If you have problems with missing images that you've uploaded, you need to change the path to the images on every post directly on your SQL database.
Go to phpmyadmin, and in the tab "sql" write this :
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = replace(option_value, '', '') WHERE option_name = 'home' OR option_name = 'siteurl';
and submit

now write :
UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, '','');

now write :
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, '', '');
