How to Upload iPhoto Slideshows to Facebook

By William Nagel

Apple iPhoto allows you to organize, edit and share your photo collection with a variety of online picture publishing sites. If you want to upload your picture slideshows to Facebook, you can connect and synchronize iPhoto with Facebook by downloading and installing the Facebook plugin. Once the plugin is installed, uploading pictures to Facebook is as easy as choosing which photos to export.

Visit Facebook and download the Facebook for iPhoto plugin. Without the plugin, you will be unable to synchronize your photo collection with Facebook.
