You can share your images from iPhoto and Aperture directly to Facebook. I think this is a very convenient feature of both the apps since you're in here working on your photos anyway. The first thing you have to do in iPhoto is go to Preferences, go to Accounts and make sure that you enable your Facebook account. You do that by just clicking the little plus sign here, you choose Facebook, you choose add, it will have you put in your credentials and once you do that, then Facebook will show up here in your Accounts.
So, we're all set that way. Now, let's actually put a photo on Facebook from iPhoto. We'll use this shot right here, this shot of the Audi. So, I select that image and then I go down here to the Share menu. I choose Facebook; I don't want to do this as a Profile shot. I'm not creating an Album, but I can, I could select many shots and do an album. I just want to put it on the Wall and I'll just say, "Audi R8", just like that and then, I Publish.
I am notified that I have that image on my Facebook Wall, let's go see it. And there is my image right there. Beautiful! Isn't that easy? Now, you could do this from Aperture also. Let's just go ahead; we'll close this. The procedure is very similar in Aperture as it is in iPhoto. I will start out by going to Preferences and I will go to Web, Web in Aperture; you do the plus sign, you add the account.
Make sure that everything is in order. Once your account is in order, let's add one more shot. We'll do the side shot right here. Go to the Share menu, say, I want to put it on Facebook, don't want to do a new album, I just want to put it on the Wall, write a comment, hit Publish. Down here we can see it's working away, it's talking to Facebook, it's saying, Hey take this photo please.
I get the notification and there is our side view. Now, one of the nice things is that if you're using both iPhoto and Aperture, you can upload from either app, you don't have to choose one or the other. That will be a little different with Photo Stream. But for Facebook you can use either application to put things on your wall or create albums.
