How do i take a photo from a website and put it on my facebook?

Asked by jca (36010points) May 2nd, 2009

1. i want to take a portrait taken of my daughter at the local department store (they give thumbnail previews of all the shots) and put it on my facebook.

2. i want to take a photo from my union website (amateur photo) and put it on my facebook.

for both photos, it would either be in “album” or for my main photo of myself. how do i do it?

Right click save the photo.
Go to the photos section in Facebook, upload the photo off of your computer.

Did you right click save the photos you want?

Log onto facebook. Click on “Photos” Create an album. There should be an “upload photos” option somewhere. or “Edit pictures” which is where you can upload them. Once you click on upload, it will open up the files you need to browse your pictures.

If you want to pull a photo from a web site it must be available to copy. If it is all you have to do is right click on the photo and it gives you a drop down menu click “save as” and save it to your computer. Then you go to facebook and upload it.
