Uploading Photos to Share

When it comes to sharing photos on Facebook, it all starts with the new Photo Uploader. This is where you choose your photos to upload, and add information for each photo.

To use the new Photo Uploader, follow these steps, click Profile on the toolbar to go to your profile page, then click Photos in the sidebar. When the Photos page appears, click the Upload Photos button. (Alternately, you can upload photos into an existing album by selecting that album then clicking the Add More Photos button.)

When the Upload Photos dialog box appears, click the Select Photos button. When the Select File(s) to Upload window appears, select the photos you want to upload; hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple photos. Click Open when done.

The Upload Photos dialog box appears while your photos are being uploaded. Enter the name of the album to which you want to upload these photos, the location where the photos were shot, and the quality you want for the photos. (If you want your friends to be able to download print-quality photos, check the High Resolution option.) Select whom you want to share the album with (Everyone, Friends, or Friends of Friends), then click the Create Album button.

Once the photos are uploaded, you see the Tag Your Friends page. Enter the name of a friend beneath each picture, if you want, then click the Save Tags button.

That’s it. Your new photos are uploaded—at print-quality resolution, if you selected the High Resolution option.
