How to Upload Photos to Facebook

By Jodi Lyn

Chances are you've heard of Facebook, and you most likely have your own account. You've probably learned how to "friend" another person, add applications and edit your profile. Now that you've conquered some of the most basic steps in the world of social networking, add some of your own photos to share parts of your life story with the rest of the world. And the best part? It's quick and easy to learn how to upload your photos to Facebook.

Things You'll Need

  • Facebook account
  • Photos uploaded to your computer

Step 1

Go to and log in to your account.

Step 2

Click on the "Photos" button on the right side of your screen under the "Bookmarks" menu after logging in if you're using the new version of Facebook. If you're using the old version, click on the "Photos" button on the left side of your page underneath the "Applications" menu.

Step 3

Go to a new screen that shows all of your albums, as well as your friends' albums. On the right side of your page, there should be a gray box that says "Create a Photo Album." Click it.

Step 4

Click this button to go to a page where you can fill in some custom fields to describe your album to your friends. Name your album and add a location and description if you'd like. You can also control who sees your album under the "Who Can See This Album" tab at the bottom.

Step 5

Go to the page where you can upload your photos from your computer. Choose the folder you want to upload your photos from. After you've chosen the folder, the photos in that folder should show up. Click the boxes next to the photos you want to add to your album.

Step 6

Click the "Upload" button at the top right of the upload photo box once you've chosen all the photos you want in that album (limit of 60). This will take you to a page where you can edit the captions of the photos and tag your friends.

Step 7

Hit the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the screen. Once you've done this, your album will be added to your profile.

Tips & Warnings

  • Tag friends in your photos.
  • Provide captions so your friends know what's going on in the photos.
  • Choose only the photos you want others to see.
  • Set your privacy levels before adding photos. If you don't want certain people to see these photos of you, be sure to figure that out before you upload them to Facebook.
