Uploading Photos to Facebook – Creating Photo Albums

The video below demonstrates how to upload your photos to Facebook and create albums there.


In a phone conversation with a follower of Technology for Seniors Made Easy, I learned that she did not know how to upload photos to Facebook. She had attended some important family events and was anxious to share her photos with family and friends.  I explained in detail. The next day, by visiting her Facebook page, I learned that she was able to upload them individually. She wrote, though, that she could not upload more than one at a time.

Uploading Photos to Facebook

1 – Go to either your Home or Your timeline page.

2 – Just above where you would type a “What’s on your mind” message is a “Photo” link. Click on that.

3 – Then choose “Upload Photos/Video” Select photo from window that pops up. (See Uploading to Existing Album post for instructions for adding more than one photo from a list, or Step 6 below)

4 – You will be directed back to your page where you’ll see the photo.  You can click on space with + plus sign to add another photograph.

5 – Add a description (optional).  You can always add one when editing later, or make a comment. In the video I mention tagging my friend Blaise Allen who took the photo. When I “tag” her, she will be notified about the post.

6 – To Create a Photo Album go back to a new message window and click on “Create Photo Album” and add photos by

7- Add Title and Description.  You can add, edit, change at any point in time. See Adding to Facebook Photo Albums.

8 – Shown in the video, there is also an option to Share the Album, with any of your Facebook friends.

9 – In the video I start showing where and how to find the information in Facebook’s Help menu. As I was doing this video I saw the location of the information had changed since I had checked it out the day before. Thus the momentary confusion you hear in the video.

You can find a continuation of this post on how to add additional photos to the same album by clicking on Adding to Facebook Photo Albums .

Note – The sounds you hear, from time-to-time in the background, are from Facebook’s notification system. They are letting me know that new messages from Friends have been posted on my wall.
