How to Send photos on Facebook

  ponytail 08:41 14 Sep 2014

Can someone tell me how to send photos on Facebook as the person in Australia I want to send them to does not have email but is on Facebook

I presume that you and the person in Australia already have Facebook accounts, for without one you cannot post photos on Facebook.

Go to your Facebook timeline and just underneath the section with People You May Know you will see a box with the headings Status, Photo/Video and Life Event.

Click on Photo/video and then on Upload Photos/Videos.

Select the photo that you want to share and add any comments.

Click on Post in the right hand corner of the box and wait for the photos to appear on your timeline.

Don't know about Facebook,social media is not my bag, but to your problem.

With the image of interest on screen' press print screen/Ctrl. Go to your image editor then edit/paste.

Adjust the image to suit.

Go to File/save as' save to a suitable location.

Prepare your normal email and attatch the thee image

Hi In order to have a Facebook account, I thought you needed an email address. I've just checked the sign up page and you have to put in an email address.

So, assuming you are 'friends' on Facebook, why don't you send her a 'Chat' message. You can then ask her for email address or just 'click & drag' the photo file into the Message box and it will send to her once you send the message.

Hope that helps

As I understand it XPT wishes to send her pictures 'privately off the FB platform. In which case my advice is relevant.

PonyTail A picture editor could be Picassa/Photoshop Elements/any ofcthevSerif down laoads or depending on your Win system a basic one may be included.

You could also try in the email page 'insert/then go to where ever you put the print screen image as described

Like I said don't do Facebook,very private me.
