Motorola Droid :: Uploading - Sending Photos To Facebook
Nov 8, 2009
I'm having some difficulty with sending photos to facebook. If I take a photo using the option in the facebook app, the photo will be a thumbnail size when it gets sent to facebook. However, when I take the photo through the camera app and then do share to facebook, it will be full size. Is this just me or is there a way around this?
Don't know if anybody else is having this problem bu I assume somebody is!When I upload portrait photos to facebook (portrait as in not landscape... as in vertical not horizontal), they show up in landscape.

I noticed that recently any photo uploads have the caption "Uploaded via Facebook Mobile" instead of "Uploaded via Facebook for Android".This changed sometime between May 10 and 15: Sometime between May 10 and 15 the Facebook Android app has c on Twitpic.Can anyone help me with this issue? and is anybody having the same problems as I'm having?
I just got the captivate (had the backflip) and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to upload photos to facebook. With the backflip it was so simple, take the pic, tap share, tap facebook.I tried that on this phone but when I do share my options are picasa, bluetooth, gmail, email, allshare, messaging and online locker.And when I log onto facebook through the website or app there is no option for uploading photos.I have googled this topic to death and find absolutely nothing.
The facebook app definitely has not links to it. I used the browser to get to the site and selected full site. I get all the way into upload and the upload page says uploads disabled. Anyone know why this would be?I registered my phone number on my previous phone (same number/provider now) with facebook and have an upload email address. On my previous phone I successfully uploaded videos using this method.So I tried it on the droid. First problem I had was with the messaging app. I can't figure out how to search my contacts from the To:. If I start typing the contacts come up but it only lists phone numbers.I found that the Contacts has an menu option for Display Options. That's where the Only contacts with phones check box is.still doesn't show up in the messaging app. I even killed it hoping some kind of refresh was needed.nope.no emails. Why doesn't the message app have a contacts menu option. So I go to contacts which now has facebook email in it. I find facebook. I hit edit. I press and hold on the email text box.copy all.then restart messaging and paste the email into the to.that was quite a bit of work.at least now I have a message thread to reuse..cause that was a PITA.I then hit upload and select my video...all my videos of which the longest is 20 seconds (I've always been able to mms up-to-30 seconds on Verizon) error out saying they are two big. btw.my samsung flip phone with windoze 2 would go into a "formatting for messaging" sequence before sending it.So I take a 2 second video attach it and send it off.facebook texts back "Sorry an error occurred processing your video. Please try again in a little while."huge props to anyone who can come up with a way to upload video either 3G or wifi to facebook. I'm going to try USB mounting and upload on the computer but that defeats the whole purpose.huger props to anyone who can figure out why the main facebook site says "Video Uploads Disabled" when I surf from my phone....the conspiracy theory person thinks collusion!
I've searched the forums but have found no solution to my issue.Whenever I go to gallery and click on a photo to "Share" and click facebook I immediately receive an error "Upload, An error had occurred while saving the photo" anyone have any suggestions? I tried rebooting among other things.I love the phone so far though just want to upload pics to facebook now
I know already know how to upload a picture to facebook but what the Droid doesn't seem to allow is adding a caption to go along with the picture. How can I do that? Today I uploaded a photo with no problems but then I had to click the comment button for that picture and write the caption there instead of it being a part of the picture.Also is there a way to send more than one picture to someone via a picture text message if I choose multiselect?
Is anyone getting the same problem as me when trying to upload photos taken with the camera to Google Photos, directly (from Photo->Menu->Share->Picasa). Photos are uploaded 100% complete but when i go onto Google Photos, the photos are chopped, only top 80-90% are there, the rest is filled with a grey border.
I have had my Droid since January and when I began to update my contact my friends that did not have facebook I would just go under an album and assign a picture off of facebook to their contact. When you go to the facebook picture from an album there was an option that said "set as". Well today I went to go try to set a picture to another friend and the "set as" option no longer shows up? Was that taken away with an update? Is there anyway to set a facebook picture from an album to a friend?
A decent number of my contacts are syncing with facebook but there are no photos associated with them. When I click on their facebook account through the contact card their profile doesn't show either their profile picture or any of their photo albums. Most of my other friends are syncing and properly showing pictures, but for some reason a fair number won't display any pictures. Anyone else having this problem?
I know how to upload single photos but I can't figure out how to upload multiple ones to facebook. If I select multiple photos and choose share. I only get the option to use Gmail/SMS/picasa/bluetooth.
So when you enter a new contact, if you have your facebook account synced, it will automatically put the contact's picture in there for you...BUT when someone updates their picture (as I know some have) it does not seem to update under my contacts. How do I fix this?
So i added the facebook account to the droid 2 and thus my contact list shows all facebook contacts. If i delete the facebook account that takes those contacts out of my list. However, by doing so will I not be able to sync facebook photos with my current contacts now?
Has anyone found a way to take someone's facebook photo and add it to the Droid contact list? When I open my contacts, most of them have photos, which have been pulled from FaceBook, but 3rd party apps, such as Handcent SMS, only pull the images I have set for my contacts.Has anyone found a workaround to this issue?
I have the Samsung Moment and would like to upload my photos to the My Pictures folder on my PC. When I upload to "Upload to PC/ or Gmail" it goes right to Gmail but I'd like to put this somewhere else so I can put them easily into folders. Also, any word on when Adobe will be available for the Moment? I'm dying to play Scrabble on my phone.
I am trying to upload photos from my Desire to my Picasa web albums and having no success. When i use the share function on the phone I am asked to create a google account or sign in. As I have a google account which i use for my google calender, contacts and tasks I try signing in with that. That is as far as i get, after it trying to connect to the google server and returning to the picture of the photo i wanted to upload. My desire is still syncing ok with calender,contacts and tasks so the account is accessible but not to picasa it seems. I have downloaded Picasa 3 to my laptop and can upload photos from there fine.Any pointers/solutions will of course be gratefully received.
I have a friend who is added to my Desire's contact list.
1. He is on my Facebook contact. (His facebook pic appears in my Desire contact list) 2. He is my Gmail contact as well. 3. He is added as a 'Phone Contact' as well.
I sent him a text few days ago but don't remember if it was using facebook or my phone (network provider sms) but now when I go in to 'Messages' and send him a message, I just can't figure out if I am sending him a message via Facebook or to his mobile number.
How do I make my contact photo stay as the google photo.I have several contacts who are linked to facebook contacts and have selected the google image are their main photo. Unfortunately some of the contacts seem to keep changing back to the facebook photo after a short while, whilst others remain OK.I have been struggling with this for quite some time, each time I change the selected image back to google but it always changes itself back.
I upload to Facebook using email and Facebook sends me a reply that they don't support that format. I am recording in MEGP4 & using YouTube works when YouTube actually uploads to Facebook! Am I supposed to be recording in that H.263 format?
im having problems uploading videos to facebook from my evo. tried some different methods such as getting a special email address from facebook for my account so i can email videos to my profile...it works fine for photos but will not post videos from my evo ( 3gp format issue?) i hate qik and have read about people using that to upload videos to facebook. tried it and with me its either a hit or a miss meaning sometimes it uploads and other times it doesnt ( and most of my videos are not huge usually 14 seconds and always under 30 seconds)
dont get me started on that i have to dial down the quality of the video from 720p to something that looks like a pixelated mess to upload videos to facebook in a timely manner..i dont like to wait hours or days for a video to finish uploading and yes i do it over wifi and no its not a slow connection i guess im wondering if theres a way that doesnt involve transferring files to my pc converting them to another format and uploading from there...or is there an app that works atleast 90% of the time to upload videos from my evo without having to first upload them to a secondary site and then link to facebook? i just have a hard time accepting the fact that it was painless uploading videos to facebook from a dumbphone and that its such a huge pain on my evo
