How To Add Photos To Facebook Album

Photos are part of us, and when you take pictures to capture various moments, it makes sense that you want to add them to your Facebook album.

A Facebook album is an excellent way of organizing your photos and videos. Besides, your Facebook friends can view your photos based on a given album and all pictures associated with a given event or memory.

Quick Answer

The question is, how do you add photos to a Facebook album? Here’s the kicker – Facebook allows you to create a new album and add photos when creating the album. Alternatively, you can have an existing album and add photos to it. Still, you can add photos to a Facebook album by moving them from another album.

We’ll cover the three ways of adding photos to a Facebook album. We will see the steps of using the mobile app and the Facebook website to analyze which best works for you. If that sounds good, stick around, and let’s get started.
