How to Bulk Import Photos in Facebook

The social networking site Facebook makes it easy to bulk upload and share photos with your friends online. Setting up an account is free, and you can upload as many photos as you want. You can either upload individual photos into an album one at a time or you can upload several at once--by bulk--into a photo album.

Step 1: Go to Your Profile

Log in to your account and go to your profile. You can access your profile by either clicking the 'profile link' on the upper left part of the home page or you can click on the link with 'your name' on the upper right part of the home page.

Step 2: View Your Photos

Once you're in your profile click on the photos tab. You will be taken to another page whhere you should be able to see all of the photos you've been tagged in along with any albums you've previously posted. Please note that when you add a new profile picture it automatically gets added to a profile picture album.

Step 3: Create a New Album

Above your tagged photos on the right side of the page is a button called 'Create a Photo Album'. Clicking on this button takes you to the 'Add New Photos' page. On this page you will enter the album's name, the location where the pictures were shot, a description of the album, and the option to select the album's privacy setting. Once all of that has been entered click the 'Create Album' button.

Step 4: Bulk Uploading

Once you hit the 'Create Album' button you are taken to a page where you can bulk upload any photos from your computer. Please note that you are limited to 200 photos per album. After you are finished selecting your photos click the 'upload' button. Depending on how many photos you're uploading will determine how long the upload will take. Facebook will let you know when the upload is complete. 

Step 5: Edit Photos

After the upload is complete you are automatically sent to the 'edit photos' page. Here you can add captions, select which photo will be the album cover, delete unwanted photos, and move photos to other albums. There are tabs on this page that will take you to links where you can add more photos, organize the order of the photos, and delete the entire album. While your in edit photos mode you can click on individual photos and tag the people in it. 

Step 6: Keep Adding Photos

Keep taking pictures on your digital camera, download them to your computer, and upload them to Facebook now that you know how easy it is to share your work with the world.
