Video: Sharing photos on Facebook

You can upload photos directly from Elements Organizer to online sharing services like Facebook, Flickr, and SmugMug gallery. Let's take a look at how to upload photos from Elements to the popular Facebook. In the Organizer, I'll select one or more photos that I want to upload to Facebook. Then I'll click on the Share tab in the column on the right of the Organizer, and from there I'll click on Share to Facebook. First I'm asked to authorize Elements to access my Facebook account. I am going to uncheck Download Facebook friend list, which is a feature that integrates Facebook tagging with tagging of photos in elements.

Sharing photos on Facebook

You can upload photos directly from Elements Organizer to online sharing services like Facebook, Flickr, and SmugMug gallery. Let's take a look at how to upload photos from Elements to the popular Facebook. In the Organizer, I'll select one or more photos that I want to upload to Facebook. Then I'll click on the Share tab in the column on the right of the Organizer, and from there I'll click on Share to Facebook. First I'm asked to authorize Elements to access my Facebook account. I am going to uncheck Download Facebook friend list, which is a feature that integrates Facebook tagging with tagging of photos in elements.

I don't want to do that for now; I'll just click Authorize. That launches my Web browser to Facebook where I'll log in using my Facebook username and password. After I log in, I get this instruction to close this window and return to Elements. And back in Elements, I'll complete the authorization handshake by clicking the Complete Authorization button. Elements then preps my files for Facebook, and opens this window. Here on the left I can see both photos that I selected to upload to Facebook.

I can add to those using the plus button down here, choosing other photos from my Organizer, or I can delete one of these by selecting it here, and clicking the minus symbol. There aren't any people tags that I want to include so I am going to uncheck this, and then I'll come up and decide whether I want to upload photos to an existing album, or make a brand new album. I don't have a Facebook album for photos like this, so I am going to make a new album in Facebook. I'll make sure Upload Photos to a new album is selected, and I'll give the new album a name. I'll call this Photoshop Elements pix.

I'll leave these other fields blank for now, and I'll come down to the Permissions menu to choose who will be able to see these photos in Facebook. I am going to leave this set to the default of Friends Only. I like my photos to upload fast, and I'm not that concerned about their quality on Facebook, so I'll leave Standard selected here in the photo upload quality section, and I'll click Upload. When the upload finishes I can just close this window, or I can have my Web browser open to Facebook automatically for me, so I can see the photos. I'll do that by clicking Visit Facebook.

Now, here in my News Feed, I can see the two photos that I just uploaded to Facebook. And this is the name of the album that I created. If I want to look at that album, I'll go up to Profile, I'll click on Photos, and there's my Photoshop Elements Pix album. Clicking that opens the album, where I can see the two photos. Uploading photos to Facebook like this, or to Flickr, or the other photo sharing services that have partnered with Adobe, is a great way to get your photos out there so that people in your social networks can enjoy and comment on them.
