Facebook is almost used by everybody. And by everybody, we mean everybody. Managed Security Services company Network Box discovered in a recent study that Facebook was twice as popular as Google in the Workplace. This itself justifies the above statement. We use Facebook to share pictures with our friends and family and it has become a great place to get connected.
Mostly, Google Picasa and iPhoto are two great Applications which Windows and Mac users use for all their photo shop requirements. They store pictures, edit them, email them and share them. Unfortunately, none of them has a particular button which would allow us to share our pictures on Facebook. But the Facebook developers have catered to this need and two applications would now help us achieve the above task.
Google Picasa – Picasa Uploader – Now allows you to share your pictures from Picasa and upload them to Facebook. It adds a button to your Picasa dock. Clicking it would require you to log in to Facebook, select the picture and chose an album in which you want to upload the picture to, approve it and then you’re done. It is quite a handy little Application. It runs on both Windows and Mac.
iPhoto – Facebook exporter for iPhoto – This is a free plugin that allows you to export your albums and pictures to Facebook and share them. It adds a Facebook Tab in iPhoto’s Export Panel. Select the pictures and with a click, you would be good to go. One great thing about Facebook Exporter for iPhoto is that it allows you to tag your friends using the same quick-and-easy interface found on Facebook. Click on someone in your photo, then select from a list of your friends. It requires iPhoto 5 or later to operate.
This “How To” is quite common and most of you would already be using it. However, since it is of immense use to all of us, we are featuring it.
