How to put a PDF photo on Facebook
Convert your PDF to an image file for easy use on Facebook. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

While there are a number of third-party applications that you can use to post a PDF photo to Facebook, perhaps one of the simplest ways to accomplish this task is to first convert the document to an image file, which is easily recognised by Facebook. By doing it this way, your photo will appear first on your Wall and then among your profile's Photos, where you and other can easily view it.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the PDF on your computer. Right-click on the file, or click "File" from the menu that appears on your computer.

  2. 2

    Select "Save As" from the File menu. When the "Save" box appears, select "JPEG" or "GIF" from the "Format" tab. Click "Save" to save the file. Your PDF file should now be saved also as an image file on your computer.

  3. 3

    Log in to Facebook with your username and password.

  4. 4

    From your Home or Profile page, click the Photo icon above the "What's on your mind?" box. Select "Upload a Photo from your drive," then select the image file you just created from the files or folders on your computer. When you click "Share," the image file should upload to your profile page. The upload process may take several minutes.
