Publishing video to Facebook

From: Lightroom 4 Essentials: 01 Organizing and Sharing with the Library Module

Video: Publishing video to Facebook

Another way that we can work with our video files in the Publishing Services panel is we can actually publish our videos to different sites like Facebook or Flickr. Now the process is actually pretty much the same. What I am going to do is explore how we can publish, say, this video clip here to Facebook. Well, what you need to do is to navigate to the Publish Services panel, click on the Plus (+) Icon, and go to the Publishing Manager. Here I am going to click on Facebook and what I want to do is create a new output or a new publishing field here to publish my video files.

Publishing video to Facebook

Another way that we can work with our video files in the Publishing Services panel is we can actually publish our videos to different sites like Facebook or Flickr. Now the process is actually pretty much the same. What I am going to do is explore how we can publish, say, this video clip here to Facebook. Well, what you need to do is to navigate to the Publish Services panel, click on the Plus (+) Icon, and go to the Publishing Manager. Here I am going to click on Facebook and what I want to do is create a new output or a new publishing field here to publish my video files.

I'll name this "CO" for my initials. Again, you can name it whatever is relevant to you there. To authorize this on Facebook, all that you need to do is make sure you're logged in to Facebook, and then once you are, it will pull that up and you can click Done and show that you are authorized. Here we can define a particular album. In this case, it's going to go to videos. That's fine. Next thing that I want to do is I want to determine how I want to name this file. Facebook can use the title of the file name. That can be fine. And then we could also rename this.

If we want to change the file name, we could choose that option down here. If we make our way all the way down, we have some video compression options. Now we've seen this before that Maximum, that's going to be too big for online viewing. Well, Medium, it's going to work well, it gives us a little reminder of that. This is suitable for Web sharing and for higher-end tablets, perfect! Once we've dialed in those settings, we'll go ahead and click Save. Now that we've saved this, we'll be able to see this here in this panel and let's open it up so we can see that we have this particular setting here.

Next step is going to be to simply click and drag this to that area, and then if we click on this and go to this Grid View, we can see that we have one video clip that we need to publish. I am going to go ahead and click Publish here. This will then send this up to my Facebook account. Once again, the processing of this and the uploading of this file will happen in the background, and once this is complete, what we'll be able to do is to pull up Facebook and take a look at how this publish process has gone. All right! Well, I'll go ahead and open up the Facebook page.

Well, here is the post and what's great about this is I can go ahead and take a look at this. You notice that I am able to play this file if I want to, other people can comment on it and share it. And again, the great thing about this is that this gives us new reach, new ability to share our work in some pretty interesting ways. And what's really fascinating to me about this whole process is if we go back to Lightroom for a moment, this process is incredibly simple. Again, the Publish Services has this built-in memory.

So if I want to publish another video, all that I would need to do would be to select that and then drag it to this Publish Services, and then when I was ready, I could go ahead and click Publish and I could send this one to Facebook as well. Now I am not going to send this one right now, because a lot of times I think it's a better strategy with Facebook to kind of give a little bit of space between your posts. Let one post live for a while and then add another perhaps in a couple of hours or maybe even a couple of days. But either way, this Publish Service panel allows us to kind of manage this, see what we've published, what we haven't, and to accomplish this whole process really quickly and easily.
