LiveUpload to Facebook (easy photo uploads)

Lately I’ve been using Facebook more and more to keep in touch with people I know. One problem with Facebook is that uploading and managing photos in Facebook is harder than it should be.

On my own PC, I use the excellent (and getting better all the time) Windows Live Photo Gallery to manage photos. This software is currently in beta, but I don’t have any qualms about recommending it as a primary photo management tool. One cool feature of this software is that it provides a Publish menu, under which you will find options for publishing the photos on your PC to online photo services. Out of the box, it supports only Microsoft’s online photo service and Flickr, but it also provides a plugin model that allows developers to create plugins to publish to other online services. I found one (called LiveUpload to Facebook) for publishing to Facebook, and it worked well the first time I tried it.

For anyone that uses Facebook, and uploads photos to Facebook, give it a try. Even if you’re not currently using Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s worth your time to download it and play around with it to see if you like it.
