How to Create a Facebook Photo Album
Photo albums are some of the posts you are most likely to create and look at on Facebook. Whereas a single photo can share a moment, an album can truly tell a story and spark conversations with your friends. To create an album, follow these steps:
Click Add Photo/Video in the Publisher on your Home page or Profile.
This opens the Photo options.
Click Create an Album.
Often this opens an Uploading Tip window. Read it and then click Select Photos to move on. This opens the same interface for exploring your hard drive that you used to upload a single photo.
If you have trouble uploading an album, you can try using the basic uploader. After you click Create Album, an upload photos tip screen appears. Click the Try the Basic Uploader link. You can then name your album and upload one photo file at a time (similar to how you upload a single photo).
Select multiple photos by holding the Ctrl or Command button and clicking the files you want. When you’re done, click Open.
This opens the Upload Photos pop-up box . The progress bar fills with blue as your photos are added.
Fill out the Name of Album and Location.
Usually Album Names are descriptive (by default, Facebook names it the date of your upload). Names such as Wedding! or Day at the Beach usually suffice. You can add more detail later. Location is strictly optional.
Choose whether you want your photos shown in Standard or High resolution.
High-resolution photos obviously look a bit better, but they also take longer to upload. Unless you’re a pro photographer or using a truly professional-level camera, Standard Quality is usually sufficient.
Choose who can see the album using the Privacy drop-down menu.
As usual, the basic options are Everyone, Friends of Friends, Friends Only, or a Customized set of people.
Click Create Album.
When your photos have finished uploading, you see a tagging screen. Facebook tries to recognize and group similar faces, and then asks you to tag the people in the photos.
(Optional) Type the name of the friend who is in the photo in the Who Is This? box.
You don’t have to tag friends in your album; you can always bypass this step by clicking Skip Tagging Friends.
When you’re done, click Save Tags.
This brings you to the Album View of your album.
