How to Put Pictures on Facebook From the Computer

By Kristen Waters

Facebook is a social networking website. You can post messages, photos, videos and links to share with your friends and family. The Facebook Photos application allows you to upload a single photo or create an album of multiple photos. When you publish the photos, they are visible on your friends' News Feed. Your friends can choose to make comments or indicate that they "Like" the photos. They can also download the pictures to their own computers.

Step 1

Open your preferred Web browser.

Step 2

Navigate to the Facebook website.

Step 3

Log in to your account. If you don't have a Facebook account, type your personal information into the text boxes to the right of the screen, and click the "Sign Up" button to create an account.

Step 4

Click on the "Photo" link at the top of the page under the words "News Feed."

Step 5

Click on the "Upload a Photo" or "Create an Album" link in the menu that appears.

Step 6

Click on the "Browse" button, and select the photo that you want to upload from the file browser. If you are creating an album, click the "Select Photos" button and hold the "Ctrl" key down while you click on each photo.

Step 7

Type a description of the photo in the text box, if you are uploading only a single photo. Type the name of the album in the text box, and click "Create Album" if you are creating an album.

Step 8

Click the "Publish Now" button. The photos will now be visible in the Photos section of your profile and on your friends' News Feed.
