Upload Flickr Photos Directly to Facebook Photo Album

Introduction: Upload Flickr Photos Directly to Facebook Photo Album

About: 5th Ninja Turtle

This instructable shows you how to upload your Flickr photos straight to your Facebook Photo Album.

There are several Facebook applications that let you import your Flickr photostream to Facebook, but photos appear in a separate box on your Profile. None of these apps lets you upload photos directly to Facebook photo album, so you could tag them in a way Facebook understands, mark your friend on them etc.

This method uses the unofficial Flickr2Facebook uploader by Keebler. To use it you will need:

-Greasemonkey addon for Facebook
-Flickr2Facebook userscript

Step 1: Install Gresemonkey for Firefox

Go to:
Firefox Add-ons page and Install Greasemonkey

This is a very powerful Firefox add-on and it will come in handy for many things, not just uploading photos to Facebook, so it is worth to have it installed.

If you already have it you can skip this step.

You need to do this step only once.

Step 2: Install Flickr2Facebook Gresemonkey Script From Userscript.org

Go to:
Userscripts.org and install Flickr2Facebook script
Just follow the instructions GreseMonkey gives you.

You need to do this step only once!

Step 3: Visit Flickr

You can now visit a Flickr photo page.

Upload to Facebook link should appear, now.

Step 4: Uploadd to Facebook

If you click Upload to Facebook link, the dialog should appear.

Step 5: Flickr2Facebook

If you are uploading a photo for the first time, you will be transferred to Flickr2Facebook website.

Click and Login to your Facebook account.

You do not need to save the Bookmarklet, GreaseMonkey is already doing this for you.

Step 6: Facebook

Your photo should now appear in your Facebook photo album.

For every other photo you will just need to click the Upload to Facebook link on its Flickr page and process will go automatically.


This method lets you upload any photo found on Flickr regardless who the actual owner is. Please upload only your own photos or photos licensed under Creative Commons license.

Be sure to give proper credit to the authors if you are using Creative Commons licensed photos.

Please consult licensing details available for each photo.

    Does it upload your photos automatically (or is there a way, you can make it to do so)?
    At the moment I'm using clickto, to upload my photos to both, facebook and twitter (not at the same time, but it's only one additonal click)
