You can upload photos, post them on your Wall and share them with your Facebook friends right from the status update box. This adds them to your Wall Photos album. Who can see your photos depends on the permissions you have set. Your default permissions apply to the photos you upload, but you can change them using the drop-down menu, just like for any other status update.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log in to Facebook. Click "Add Photo /Video" above the status update box.

  2. 2

    Click “Upload Photo /Video”at the top of the page.

  3. 3

    Click "Browse." Select the image that you want to upload from your computer's hard drive using the file browsing interface.

  4. 4

    Type a description of the photo in the box that says "Say something about this."

  5. 5

    Click "Post."

Tips and warnings

  • A Facebook photo album can only contain 200 photos, so if you reach your limit, you will need to make a new album.
