Ever wanted to upload photos from your iPhone to Facebook? Read on to find out how to upload one picture or two from your device to Facebook using Facebook App or hooking iPhone to computer for transferring a series of photos quickly and easily.
1. Loading a Photo Directly from Your iPhone
The easiest method requires downloading the Facebook App from iTunes to your iPhone.
This is a great method of adding a picture if you are waiting in a line or on the subway and have some time to kill. The app will allow you to take a picture from the app itself or load pictures already taken and now saved in your camera roll.
Open the Facebook app by tapping the app icon (see above). From either your News Feed (picture below, left), or on your personal Timeline or Profile (pictured below, right), tap the word Photo. If you are unsure as to where you are, tap the box with the three lines in the top left corner, then and selecting your name or News Feed.
On this next screen, you have a choice. If you want to take a new picture (or record video) right now, choose Take Photo or Video. Or, if you previously took a photo with your iPhone, tap Choose From Library.
Take Photo or Video
The iPhone opens the camera app. To take a Photo, make sure there is a large camera icon button (pictured below, left). To record Video, make sure there is a red button (pictured below, right). Selecting between photos and video capture is easy - simply toggle the button in the bottom right corner back and forth.
After tapping the camera icon to take a photo, the Preview screen allows you to Retake a new picture or Use the the current photo. Option: tap anywhere on your picture to Tag your Facebook friends; when it asks Who is this?, type in friendâs name. Repeat for multiple faces in the photo.
If you Use your photo, or click Done after Tagging your friend(s), the next screen prompts you toWrite a Caption or to Post. Option: Tap Where was this taken? (pictured below, left) to Geotag your location. If you want to add a location, type it in manually, or (pictured below, right) the iPhone may name local places and business in your immediate area.
After writing something about your photo - and/or optionally Geo-taggin it - tap Post to upload your photo to your Facebook Timeline (or Profile).
Choose From Library
For those who already have a picture stored on their iPhone, tap Choose From Library. The screen will take you to your Library or Cameral Roll, where all of the photos you have stored on your phone are available for you to scroll through. Select the photo you want added to Facebook.
Similar to above, you will have the same options to Tag, Geotag, and Write a Caption. When you are done, simply tap Post to upload your photo to your Facebook Timeline (or Profile).
