How to Print Pictures From Facebook

By Christina Shaffer

If you're an avid Facebook fan, you may have noticed that the social networking site has recently changed its photo layout. Though the new layout does not include the "Save Image As" option, you can use the new download feature to save pictures to your computer and print them in your preferred digital imaging program. If you don't want to save the photo to your computer, you can print a picture from Facebook directly through your Web browser.

Click the "File" tab. Select the "Print" option.
