Uploading from Picasa to Facebook

I am getting frustrated trying to get pictures to be viewed on my Facebook newsfeed. I have used the facebook uploader on Picasa, pictures upload, I “share with Friends” and nobody can see the pictures. I can see the pictures if I go to Photos, but they do not show up on newsfeed and nobody else can see them.  What am I doing wrong??

My guess is that you didn’t set the visibility during the upload. In the screeshot below, notice the “Share Album With” option.  You may have left that at “Only Me”  Click on the thumbnail to see the larger screenshot


If that’s the case, you can go to your profile and albums, click on one of the pictures in question and, when it is full screen, you should see a sidebar with info about the picture.  At the top, by the date, you’ll see the icon that specifies who the picture is shared with – click the dropdown arrow and choose “Edit Album Privacy”  See second attached screenshot.


Let us know if this helps.1-Fullscreen-capture-1132014-110033-AM.jpgImage Enlargerfb.pngImage Enlarger

Thank you for reply.  The problem was the privacy settings. I had friends of friends.  I changed it to friends and the album posted to my news feed.  I assume others will be able to see the pictures from the party.  Time will tell. 


thanks again,
