Facebook No Longer Supports Direct Uploads From Photoshop Elements


Since the first of August, Facebook does not allow you to upload pictures directly from desktop photo editing programs such as Photoshop Elements. Photoshop Elements could previously upload photos to Facebook from its Organizer, by clicking on Share > Facebook, as illustrated in the figure below.

 Share to FB

 Since August 1st, when you do that, you are greeted with the error message below.

FB Upload Error

Clicking on Continue, the following message appears.

 Not Logged in FB

This change affects only desktop applications. Uploading photos and videos from smartphones and tablets are not affected by this new restriction.

Click on the link below to learn more about this change by Facebook. It is unclear whether Facebook will once again be available from Elements in the future.

So, for the foreseeable future, you will need to do it directly from Facebook, navigating to the physical location on your computer where the photo is located.  My general approach is to export the photo to a special folder on my desktop, and then direct Facebook to that location. I clean out the folder periodically, since once the photo is uploaded, I no longer need a copy in this special folder.  

Until next time...
