Oakland, California – It has long been possible to upload photos from Mac iPhoto to a personal Facebook profile. Now with the release of PhotoUpLink for iPhoto 1.8.3, photos can be uploaded to any business, organization or brand Facebook Page directly from the iPhoto Export file menu option.
Using a separate login provided by the PhotoUpLink Export Plugin, a list of all the pages the logged in user manages is presented for selection in a pull-down menu in the Facebook Pages tab. Photos will be uploaded to the selected Facebook Page when Export is clicked. The PhotoUpLink Facebook application will require posting and manage pages authorization when first logging in.
PhotoUpLink for iPhoto 1.8.3 is a universal 32/64-bit Intel build for iPhoto ’11 version 9.4.3 and requires Mac OS X 10.7 or newer. PhotoUpLink has been tested to work with the OS X Mavericks 10.9 and the new iPhoto ’11 version 9.4.7 running in 64-bit mode. To use PhotoUpLink in iPhoto, select an album or a group of items, then go to the File menu and choose the Export menu item. PhotoUpLink will be displayed in the Export panel.
PhotoUpLink also includes an FTP function that when run, executes in separate process from the host application and can be terminated at any time, preventing any FTP server or connection issues from freezing the main application. PhotoUpLink’s responsive modal dialog box provides accurate feedback of the upload process, displaying per file and total upload progress information.
