Upload Photos to Facebook Using Windows Live Photo Gallery

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

Unlike many other programs I’ve tried before for organizing photos, I’d need to say Windows Live Photo Gallery is probably the easiest to use. One of the more surprising aspects of WLPG (Windows Live Photo Gallery) is that it incorporates the favorite media site Facebook. This enables you to easily upload photos directly to your Facebook account.

To use Facebook with WLPG you must first have a Windows Live account. If you don’t 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?”. If you are finished use your credentials to sign in. You will also have to give permission for Facebook to connect to WLPG

To send photos directly 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 publish to. Here you can develop a new album to put photos in or pick from an existing album.

If you are developing a new album for your photos, choose 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. Last choose who is able to view the album. When you are finished click “Publish”. Your photos will be delivered to Facebook. Visit your Facebook page and you ought to see your pictures in the new album or a preexisting album with regards to the options you have chosen.
