Using your computer:
Remember when Facebook only allowed for one photo upload at a time to your Timeline? Well now they have made your life easier with the new Drag and Drop photo upload tool.
Steps to dragging and dropping your photos onto your timeline:
- Open the folder where your pictures are located on your computer
- Highlight those you want to add
- Drag them into your “Status Bar” on your newsfeed OR profile
- A dashed-line box will appear saying “DROP HERE”
- Drop your photos and watch them upload!
I tried clicking on the image of the camera (as shown below) and it opened my gallery folder but WON’T allow me to drag and drop photos that way. I would suggest not clicking the camera image, but rather dragging and dropping your photos by opening up your gallery folder first.
NOTE: This feature will NOT add them to a photo album. This is simply a Facebook post on your timeline.
Using your smartphone:
This drag & drop feature has not been added to the Facebook App for mobile use. However, I do use an Android smartphone, and have learned that if I go to the Facebook App for Androids and click on the photo tab at the top, it brings up all my photos from my phone’s gallery with check boxes; allowing me to upload multiple photos at once! This is excellent, because I am no longer staring at my phone missing out on the action waiting to see if my picture has uploaded so I can upload another one.
