Workaround for Posting Pictures to Facebook

I have tried the Facebook export tool for F-Spot, but I couldn’t get it to work.  Thanks to rvf0068, I have a bug report link, and hopefully the bug gets fixed soon.  In the meantime, this is what I have found that works:

  1. Select in F-Spot the photos you want to upload.  I have been creating a Facebook tag and applying that to the pictures I want to share via Facebook.  Then, I can search for that tag and highlight all of them with the tag.
  2. Go to Photo > Export to > Folder …
  3. Choose a temporary folder as the destination
  4. Choose “Save the files only” for the Export Method
  5. Log into the Facebook
  6. Go to Profile, then Photos
  7. Create a new Album
  8. Using the Java Applet, browse to the temporary folder and upload those pictures.
