Video: Sharing photos on Facebook

Elements streamlines the process of uploading photos to Facebook, allowing you to upload photos that you've imported to Elements Organizer directly from there to Facebook. Of course, I'm online as I do this, and in the Organizer, I'm going to select a couple of JPEGs that I want to upload to my Facebook account. Then I'll go over to Share menu on the right side of the Organizer, I'll click, and I'll choose Facebook from the dropdown menu.

Sharing photos on Facebook

Elements streamlines the process of uploading photos to Facebook, allowing you to upload photos that you've imported to Elements Organizer directly from there to Facebook. Of course, I'm online as I do this, and in the Organizer, I'm going to select a couple of JPEGs that I want to upload to my Facebook account. Then I'll go over to Share menu on the right side of the Organizer, I'll click, and I'll choose Facebook from the dropdown menu.

That opens this window, where I'll authorize Elements Organizer to upload my photos to my Facebook account. At the same time, I could download my Facebook friend list to Elements. I don't want to do that, so I'm going to uncheck that box, and then I'll click Authorize. That takes me to my Facebook Login page, where I'll fill in my Username, and my Password, and click Log In. At this point, Facebook may ask you to authorize an uploader app to upload to your Facebook account. If you see something like that, allow it.

Facebook will tell you you are ready to go back to Elements; go ahead and do that too. And back in Elements, I'll click the Complete Authorization button to finish authorizing elements to upload my photos to Facebook. That opens this window, where I'll prepare my photos for uploading to Facebook. The photos I selected show up here in the content area. Beneath that content area, there is a plus and a minus icon. If I want to delete one of these photos from the upload queue, I would select it, and then click the minus button, but I actually want to keep both of these. If I want to add a photo here, I'll click the plus button, and that takes me out to my Organizer.

Now, you may see different photos there than I have right here. I am going to click Media from the Grid, and that will show me here in this content area just the photos that are currently showing in my Organizer. I'd like to add this photo of the cupcakes to this upload queue, so I'll select it there, I'll click Add Selected Media at the bottom of this window, and I'll click Done. In just a moment, you can see the thumbnail of the cupcake photo added to my upload queue. Over on the right, I can choose the album to which I want to upload these photos.

I can either upload to an existing album, if I have one, by clicking here, and then selecting an album from the dropdown menu, or if I want to create a new album, I'll come down here, and click Upload Photos to a new album. I'll name this album food. It's going to contain photos from various locations, so I'll leave that blank, and in the Description area, I'll add yummy things I've eaten.

When you create a new album, you can also choose the privacy settings for that album on Facebook. In other words, who will see the photos in that album on Facebook? I'll leave that set to Friends Only. And here I'm going to leave the photo upload set to Standard, and then I'll click Upload. It may take a moment to upload your photos to your Facebook account, depending on how many photos you've selected, and the speed of your Internet connection. When the Upload is complete, I'll click this X to close this box.

And now I am going to go out to Facebook to see the photos on my Facebook page. In a Web browser, I'll log in to my Facebook account. I'll click on my News Feed, and here you can see my latest post, direct from Elements; the photos that I uploaded to my food album, with the description right here. I'll click on the food album, and that takes me to my albums page, where you can see all three of those yummy photos right there. So that's how to upload directly from Elements to Facebook.

There is an alternative for uploading to Facebook, or any social media site, from the Elements Organizer. You could export your photos from Elements Organizer using the Export New Photos command, which I'll show you later in this course, and then upload the resulting copies to Facebook, or another social media site directly. But I think that this way, working directly out of Elements Organizer with the Share command, is much more direct, and efficient.
