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.
So even though we are going to depend a lot on iPhoto to organize our images that we send up to Facebook, I probably should show you a few things about Facebook, just so you can kind of find your way around, if you haven't explored already. So, I'll just show you just a few little basic organizational things in Facebook. So, you start out. I'm here on my profile page and guess what? My photo albums are located under Photos. So, I'm just going to click on that and we'll go over to our photo albums and we can see the stuff that we've uploaded from iPhoto and some stuff that was here before.
Now, if I click on one of these albums right here, I can do some organization. Click on the Organize Photos. If I want to have this photo first, I can reverse order. I can also just drag my photos around, all right, and organize inside the album. Once I'm done with that, I can just save those changes. Now, if I want to change the photo that's my album cover, I go over to Edit Photos and here's where I have this guy selected as the album cover right now, but I want this guy as the album cover.
So, all I have to do is click there, and I also want to mention that the title for the image in iPhoto goes in the Caption field in Facebook. So, let me just go to iPhoto real quick. Here we are in iPhoto. Let me just show you what I mean by that. Here's the title here and that becomes the caption in Facebook, tada! Thank you very much. So, we have made this the album cover now and I'll save those changes. Very good.
Of course, if I want to, I can add more photos here via Facebook. I have to tell you I don't really recommend doing that this way once you have your iPhoto to Facebook connection setup, because I think it's easier to maintain on the iPhoto side than here. I'll click this link and show you what it does is it actually brings up your computer, you navigate to find the photos you want, and then you can upload them.
So, we're not going to do that right now. I think it's better to let iPhoto drive that. So, those are just a few basic things just to find our way around. Again, I'll go back to my profile page and the photo albums are located under Photos and you can do some editing stuff there. It's all fairly straightforward, but my recommendation is save the organization of your images, and the uploading of your images for the iPhoto side of the equation, and just know that you can find your way around here in Facebook if you have to.
