Publish to Facebook - Beta


One of the top requests we've gotten over the years is for you to be able to easily export your SmugMug photos into albums on Facebook. We've been working hard on this and we're ready to let you test it out.

Like our new gallery style thread, you can opt in to enable this beta feature in your browser. It works the same way:

1. Visit our Goodies page here: http://www.smugmug.com/goodies/
2. Click the green 'JOIN' button next to the Publish to Facebook section.
3. If you're on a custom domain you'll need to visit the /goodies/ page on your custom URL, too.
4. Leave at any time by hitting the 'LEAVE' button and we'll remove the new features from your view.
Once you've joined, visit any of your galleries and hit the Share button. You should see a new "Publish to Facebook" option under the Owner Only options.

Click it and choose the photos from your gallery that you want to share. We'll give you a chance to pick which Album to publish to, or you can create a new one. Feel free to also customize the Image size, Caption and Link Style settings.

Hit Publish and we'll port them over to the album of your choice.

Love it? Hate it? Spot a bug? Let us know right here in this thread.


EDIT: New features added! Get details here.

Super work guys! Love the UI for this. I'm not on fb so I can't test it out, but it's got the options I'd be looking for.

I have some questions. When it publishes to Facebook it's only to a profile and not a page, yes?

What size image is being published to Facebook and will it include our watermark? I want to protect my images and don't publish anything at Facebook without it being a low res image and watermarked.

You get to pick the image size, so you can chose a nice small low-res one. You can only publish to personal Facebook albums, no pages. If your photos are watermarked, than they will be published with one, but you can't apply a watermark to a photo as you're publishing to Facebook.

Awesome feature ... thanks so much for that!

just one request... Needs a select all button! :) or if it's greater than 200 photos in the gallery, it should select the first 200 photos.

There should be a select all button on the bottom:

I think if you have more than 200 photos, you don't get the button though.

ah you're right thanks for that...

Just been playing around with it on a few galleries, I love it :)

Just a couple of other suggestions

In the photo description - would it be possible to stick in an image owners copyright tag (ie "Copyright Albie Abiog - In2Events.com 2011"), the metadata should be within the image for this to happen. Thats pretty much my only request.

also for those interested, this is how the images show up on facebook.


Done using the following settings:
image size: medium
Include captions
Link style: lightbox link
Short URLs.

Thanks for answering so quickly. So, just to clarify, the watermark I have showing at smugmug will be included. You're saying that I can't add one at Facebook? That I knew, but just wanted to be sure that's what you were saying.

I'd have to say, I really like the UI and connection between them. Are fan pages going to be possible? Right now I just shared the album with my page, but I'd prefer to keep them only on the page if possible.

"You are not the owner of this album."
This is the message I get when I click on the Share with Facebook button. What's up?

Are you planning to add the ability to publish to Pages, not just Personal Profiles?

PS- I love that it keeps the watermark!!! But would want that for my Page, not my Personal stuff!

I'm not seeing any of the bottom buttons (Select All, etc) in the latest Chrome dev build (v14). I have fewer than 200 photos in the gallery.

One of the many reasons I love Smugmug and have been using your services for the past 6 years... you are constantly trying to improve your services offered and give us (the photographers) more options to show off and sell our work.

I LOVE this new feature.. I tried it last night, and as some other people have mentioned, it would be really nice to be able to publish to a "Page" versus a personal page.. I have a page setup for my photography business, and I have my personal page, so this is why it would be even better for me to be able to publish my Smugmug album to my photography fan page.

Additionally, I LOVE the options to put a link to the gallery, lightbox image or a link to buy each individual image.. that is AWESOME.

You guys are clearly listening closely to your customers, and trying to make us happy. I'd say you're succeeding! Thank you for your efforts!!!!

I have 2 facebook accounts - one for JC Dill Photography, one for personal stuff. (I opted to do this instead of creating a Page on my regular account, so that I can control notifications separately, going to separate email accounts. Also so that I can keep a clear demarcation between work and not-work.)

How do I change which FB account is linked to my Smugmug account? When I go to Control Panel -> Settings -> Social Settings -> View your Social Accounts, the only account listed is Twitter.

+1 for adding a way to publish to a fan Page.
+1 for an option to append copyright from metadata to the caption. (I don't know if I'll use it, but I'd like to have the option.)
+1 for adding a quick button option to select the first 200 photos when the gallery has more than 200 images.

Check your scripting options. I didn't see the bottom buttons on Firefox, until I enabled scripting for Facebook. I run Firefox with scripting turned off for most sites. (I use Safari when I need to see a site without scripting restrictions.)

Thank you for the feedback so far.

We are looking into possibilities for publishing galleries to your page in addition to personal gallery.

Keep the feedback coming. We want to find as many issues as possible as fast as possible so that we can release this option to all customers.

Hmm. Facebook inexplicably bans my app and now SmugMug releases a Facebook import feature a few weeks later...

Looks good though.
