I am an admin of a FB group where we operate a digital yard sale. People post photos many times from their iPhones or smart phones. We have not discovered an app or a way to take photos from an iPhone and either start an album on this group or add to an existing album. Instead it goes into the photo tab (directly on the wall). Then the person has a hard time keeping track of their photo. Thus most want albums and have found that you can only create an album from your computer, as well as continue to add to it. Is there any app out there and something that can help us all add to our albums from a smartphone, or create an album to a group from our smart phones?

Access Facebook through your phone's browser rather than the app. Once there, at the top left hand corner of the page you should see 3 little lines; click on this and scroll down to the very bottom. There you will see "desktop site"; click on this and it will take you to the desktop site rather than the mobile site.

All you have to do from there is select the group page, click on photo, select the album, and there's a button that says "add photo's". This will allow you to upload photos into a specific album on a group page direct from any iPhone, iPad, tablet pc, and android phone.

Cell phone users, to post photos to albums use this link and instructions below.


First, go to this page, go up to the top of the page, and click on photos, not the add photos tab. Then click on the album you want to add the pic to. When the album is open you will then click add photo on the upper right hand side of the screen.

Then, choose the photo you wanted to add to it.

Move your group over to something like yardsey.com - it is an app that replaces the need to post items to albums as it acts like a mini ebay just for your group. Loads of great features and much easier for admins as items delete automatically. The mobile version makes it super easy to load items from your mobile and sellers can manage all their items in one place.

This reads a lot like an advertisement and less like an answer. If you are affiliated with the site please disclose that and elaborate on how specific features meet the OP's needs, please. Thanks! –  jonsca Jan 12 '14 at 6:02
