Upload Photos to Facebook Using Windows Live Photo Gallery

Windows Live Photo Gallery is really a free, convenient to use program developed by Microsoft. You can find it with Windows update or by going to Microsoft’s download website. Once installed it really is found in the start menu as its own icon called “Windows Live Photo Gallery” or you can type “Windows Live Photo Gallery” in the “Start” search bar.

Unlike many other programs I’ve tried during the past for organizing photos, I would need to say Windows Live Photo Gallery is one of the easiest to use. One of the more surprising areas of WLPG (Windows Live Photo Gallery) is that it incorporates the favorite media site Facebook. This allows one to easily upload photos directly to your Facebook account.

To use Facebook with WLPG you must first have a Windows Live account. If you do not have one you can easily set up. Click on the Facebook Icon at the top of the WLPG menu bar in the “Share” section. The “Sign in to Windows Live” window, will popup. Near the bottom of that window you can click “Subscribe” next to “Don’t have a Windows Live ID?”. When you are finished use your credentials to register. You will also need to give permission for Facebook to connect to WLPG

To send photos right to your Facebook from WLPG, click one or multiple photos you would like to add. Then click “Facebook” under “Share”. The “Publish on Facebook” window will popup allowing you to select an album to create to. Here you can create a new album to put photos in or pick from an existing album.

If you are developing a new album for your photos, pick the create new album tab. You will have three categories to fill. First, create you album name, then select a descriptive text for the album. iris choose who is in a position to view the album. While you are finished click “Publish”. Your photos will undoubtedly be sent to Facebook. Visit your Facebook page and you should see your pictures in the new album or an existing album with regards to the options you have chosen.
