Uploading photos directly to Facebook can be a hassle at times, especially if you are uploading large images that Facebook needs to compress and resize before you can edit your album information. If you’re uploading a lot of photos at once, this process will even time-out on occasion, causing you to have to start over.
What can you do ahead of time to prevent this? Well, you could resize and compress your images manually beforehand, but that could take a while. Or…you could just download Easy Photo Uploader for Facebook. In this article, I’m going to show you what this application can do and how to use it.
What is Easy Photo Uploader for Facebook?
As the name implies, Easy Photo Uploader for Facebook is a desktop application that gives you an easy way to get photos from your desktop to your Facebook page. It helps you easily create and update photo albums without having to visit Facebook’s website or using the default Facebook uploader, which has been known to give users trouble from time to time, especially when uploading a large batch of files.
With this program, you can set resizing and compression options in advance so your photos are uploaded in the exact form you want them in ahead of time. Once you connect your Facebook account with Easy Photo Uploader for Facebook, you will also be able to upload images simply by right-clicking them, because the program provides right-click context menu integration as well.
