How to Upload Pictures on Facebook From Your Computer


Facebook allows you to share pictures and other content with your friends. There are several ways you can upload pictures from your computer to the social networking website. The "Share" menu at the top of your Facebook home and profile pages allows you to quickly upload individual photos. You can also use the menu to create albums and upload several photos into the album at once, and you can add pictures to an already existing album. Facebook also gives you the option of emailing photos to the website.

  • Click the "Photo" link in the top center of your Facebook home page, and then click the "Upload a Photo" link to quickly upload a single photo from your computer. Click the "Browse" button and locate the photo on your computer. Type a caption or comment for the photo, and click the "Share" button. Facebook posts the photo to your wall, where it is visible to the friends of your choice.

  • Create an album if you have several pictures to upload. Click the "Photo" link and then the "Create an Album" link to begin. Click the "Select Photos" button or the "Try the Simpler Uploader" link, and select the pictures you wish to upload. As the photos upload, follow the Facebook prompts to title your photo album, provide a location where the pictures were taken and customize who you want to share the pictures with. Click "Create Album" when you are finished, and make any desired edits to the album before publishing the pictures to your Facebook wall.

  • Add photos to an existing album by clicking on the "Photos" link from your Facebook "Profile" page. Select the album you want to add pictures to, and click the "Add Photos" button. Click "Select Photos" or "Try the Simple Uploader," select the pictures from your computer, and provide captions for the pictures if desired.

  • Use your custom Facebook upload email to send pictures to Facebook from your email account. Visit and look up your Facebook upload email in the "Upload via Email" section. Using your email program, attach pictures from your computer to an email and send the email to Facebook. Facebook posts the pictures to your account.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use Facebook's privacy settings when posting pictures to restrict who can see the photo. Look for a lock icon as you upload pictures and create or edit an album. Use the drop-down privacy menu to select who can view the pictures.
