iPhoto direct export to Facebook!

A great tip submitted by Dominic P. Tremblay: iPhoto direct export to Facebook! If you are a Facebook user, you know how long it takes to import your pictures, add a caption and tag the people. Wouldn't it be great if that whole procedure could be done in iLife, in a very Mac-like way? Well it can with the iPhoto add-on called "Facebook Exporter for iPhoto". I have to say that I am very impressed with the integration of this add-on. After it is installed, the whole thing looks like it has always been there. To use it:

1. Download "Facebook Exporter for iPhoto". (You can get it here, from MacUpdate)
2. Run the install.
3. Open iPhoto.
4. Select the pictures you want to import in Facebook.
5. Go to File, and choose "Export...".
6. Click on the "Facebook" tab.
7. Click on "Login" and proceed to the login in Safari.
8. Come back to iPhoto.
9. Name the album that will be created in Facebook.
10. Go through the list of photo at the left and enter the caption and the tags.
11. Click "Export" and wait until it is over.
12. That's it! You now only have to login to Facebook and confirm that you really want to publish this album. You can then choose whether you want the album accessible by everyone or only your friends!

Thanks for the great tip Dominic!

just wanna let you know...that facebook already has a pretty easy way to do it (java)...where you can go through your files and upload all the pictures at once.

you still have to tag and put captions...but it's still pretty easy.

You don't have to go to the browser if you use firefox to login in. Once you save the information it should just let you click and it will do it all. You can also upload to albums already created on facebook.

Google has a similar iPhoto plugin for the online picasa photo albums. Works great!

How can I remove the Facebook/iphoto add on? I don't like it. I prefer the Java web app. Keep the tips coming!

how do you change the iphoto browser preference so that it will open up firefox instead of safari?
