I can't upload photos on Facebook

If you're having trouble uploading or posting photos on Facebook, here are some things you can try.

Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash

Manage any adblocking software
  • If you're using adblocking software, turn it off or make sure that Facebook is included as an exception.

Check your photo format
  • Try uploading the original photo instead of an edited version. Editing photos (example: with iPhoto or Photoshop) before uploading them may cause the upload to fail.
  • We recommend uploading JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF or TIFF files. If you're uploading a PNG file, it's best to keep the file size below 1 MB. PNG files larger than 1 MB may appear pixelated.
  • Check the size of the photo. We recommend uploading photos under 15 MB.

Update your browser
  • Make sure you're using the latest version of your browser.
