Facebook is a terrific platform for sharing photos online, and iPhoto ’09 has the tools for organizing and editing the images before publishing them. In iPhoto '09: 10 Things to Know About Facebook, professional photographer Derrick Story shows how to establish two-way communication between these applications. He demonstrates how to make changes on one side and have those changes reflected in both places. Derrick covers editing techniques in iPhoto, shows how to work with tagging images, and offers troubleshooting tips for publishing photos on Facebook.
One of the things that I like about this connection between iPhoto and the Facebook is the work that you do in Faces in iPhoto translates up to Facebook, and let me show you how that works. So these are the photos that we uploaded in the first movie and so they are now on Facebook and these have been tagged in Faces and, of course, I can check that by clicking on a photo, going down to Name and seeing that my name shows up and you can even see the area that's tagged.
So these are tagged in Faces in iPhoto. Now, let's go to Facebook. Here we are, we uploaded those and we are in Facebook right now. So I can click on this and I can click on this photo here and I can see by waving my mouse over it that that tag that was added in iPhoto shows up in Facebook and in fact, if I go down here, I can even see the tag area, the square and it's approximately the same square that was applied in iPhoto.
So this communication between the two apps is very helpful, very useful. So other people can see these tags after I uploaded the Facebook. But wait, there's more. Let's go back to iPhoto. So back here in iPhoto, we can even notify a person if we upload photos of them to Facebook if they have a Facebook account and I can show you how that works. We will go over here to Faces and let's say that I want to send up a few pictures of Stephanie, a couple of her headshots or something like that. I want to put those on my Facebook page as a photo album, but I want Stephanie to be automatically notified when I do that. That's easy enough to do. I just go back to the corkboard here and I click on the i and in Stephanie's information box here, I just have to enter her name and then just enter her email address.
Now this has to be the email address that she uses as her Facebook ID for this to work. So you have to know that. Once you do that and click Done, now if I open up and I decide that I want to upload these images to my Facebook account, so I would select them and click on Facebook and go to the Upload procedure, those would show up on my Facebook page as an album and Stephanie would be notified that those were up there and on top of that, her Stephanie tag would also be apparent on Facebook.
So this connection between Facebook and Faces is really terrific because it allows us to know who is in the photos and allows other people browsing by, especially if there are shots with multiple people in them, then it's really helpful. You can just waive over them and you can see who all the names are. So Faces to Facebook, it's a good connection and there is actually even more to it I'm going to show you.
