    From iMore's Photo Help email:

    "Ive been searching without success, trying to find out how to upload pictures from the new Photos app that replaced iPhoto on my Mac with the latest upgrade. FB cant find any pictures that Ive saved since the upgrade. I can upload photos to" FB from the new Photos app but Im not able to change my cover picture or upload a picture in a comment on someones page unless I use a picture that Ive previously uploaded to FB from the Photos app.

    I feel like Im talking in circles! Bottom line, I just want to be able to add photo while on Facebook but so far havent figured out how to do it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!"

    In Safari, on FB - I click the obvious places to add a photo and get a Finder-like window where on the left, under 'Media' I can select 'Photos' - and everything appears to the right of the sidebar, and photos are selectable... As to albums, etc - on Safari/Facebook - that behaves for me like it always has to make an album, rearrange, pick key picture, etc...

    Is this a question or just an example?

    I have the exact same problem trying to upload photos to Facebook. I have attempted everything I can think of without success. I can upload numerous photos, but it always puts them in the last album I uploaded, no matter what I try. Any ideas?

    I liked kch50428s answer and it led my in the right direction. One other thing I had to do was to scroll down to find Media because it didnt show up at first.

    Your answer solved the problem for me. I've been unable to upload pictures to Facebook using the new Photos app ever since it appeared. Thank you so much!

    I am trying to learn how to use the Mac OS X Photos app to upload photos to my Facebook page, that is, within the Photos app [v.1.5], not when logged into my FB account. I recall, probably from iPhotos daze, that I could do that, but no more.

    Not to cloud the primary issue, but I have an entire Photos album of 23 photos that I'd like to post.

    Go to your album, and at the top of the page is an icon that looks like a square with an arrow pointing up. Click on that icon for a list of options to use in sharing your photos. Facebook is one of the options.

    My issue: I create an album in Photos. Then go Facebook to upload the album I just made. Note: I'm not trying to upload to my personal
    FB PAGE. I''m trying to upload to a FB group/business page (not sure if that matters). Anyway, I hit "Create Album" button which takes me to my files. I select PHOTOS under Media drop down and the album I just created is not listed so I can not access it. However... if I wait a few days, it sometimes will appear. It's crazy! I go to PHOTOS and it's there, but for some reason it won't let me access it when trying to upload. Is there an access setting I need to deselect? Thank you to anyone who understands what I just typed! LOL!

    GinaVF, I have this problem too.

    Firstly, Apple Photos is like iTunes - they're both databases. Each photo is a blob inside the database, so it is invisible to the file system. Facebook etc can only see the files in the file system. It cannot see inside the database of photos, so it can't find anything.

    Apple Photos will only help you send a photo to your own Facebook page, using the icon that looks like a box with an arrow pointing up.

    However, as you found, it cannot send a photo to a Facebook page that is not your own.

    The work-around is to EXPORT the photo you need from Apple Photos to a file folder like "Desktop". This creates a separate file for the picture, and Facebook can see that file. Using Facebook, you can then import that file.

    They complicate everything.... it gets worse using mac photos app

    It’s not working in Chrome for me but it does work in Safari. With Chrome I just get the spinning wheel and the bottom left corner like the photos are gonna load any second.

    Yep that’s exactly what I did too, for Chrome. On Safari everything works just fine. I use an iMac btw. Doubt it matters.
