Problems with the Java Uploader try the Picasa Uploader on Facebook

Some might think that Google is trying to shoehorn its way into your Beloved Facebook however with the problems with the default Java Uploader this is another great way to upload your photos. It has been designed for IE8 however I will work with Firefox with IE Tab XPI.

first install the latest version of Picasa 3 to your PC then goto the application link on Facebook


When it detects that Picasa is loaded it will allow you to import the Facebook Button to Picasa if you are using Firefox you will also have to choose the Picasa link

When you have done this when you goto the application page in facebook you will be able to install the facebook button to Picasa click on install now

You will then see this window asking if you want to install the facebook button to Picasa interface

followed by

When all is finished you will be able to use the button to upload you photos to facebook

A bit longwinded but you only have to do it once then all you have to do is select the photos you want to upload and press the facebook button at the bottom

Picasa is also a great way to manage all you photos and jpegs on your PC and also to use the Picasa Web Albums photo sharing feature and as a bonus it will also allow you to upload to your www.blogger.com account all you have to do is specify which one of your blogs you want to upload to.

And of Course your Google Earth Account using Geo-Tag you will have to install the latest version and place it on the cross hairs

what's the latest version of the java picture uploader on facebook?

Hi ........i got your issue ....
The current uploader relies on ActiveX controls (for Internet Explorer) or a Java applet (for everything else) giving lot of problems .
So what exactly is this new photo uploader which solves every problem? Why it's a plugin, just like Java or Active X, to a degree.
Facebook figured, what better way to fix the issues with plugins than by building one ourselves.
Facebook has started rolling out the new uploader and it should be coming to everyone within a few weeks.
When you want to upload a photo, you'll be asked if you want to install the photo uploader plugin. Facebook says that this shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.
What it doesn't say is that the plugin is only available for Firefox, 3.5 mind you, not the latest 3.6 as Facebook says it has disabled it in 3.6 due to a security vulnerability,
for Google Chrome but only on Windows and very recently it has been made available for Internet Explorer 7 and above.
Granted, if you can get it to work, it's a rather powerful tool.
It allows you to browse through your computer from inside the app and also shows previews of the local photos.
After you're finished with your selection, the uploader has another neat trick up its sleeve as you can navigate away from the page, or even leave Facebook altogether,
and the photos will continue to be uploaded in the background.
Even better, once HTML5 start picking up steam and gets more browser support as well,
Facebook will drop the plugin system and build the same functionality using the proposed standard.
Almost everything the new uploader does can be done with HTML5.
With the File API, you could brows local folders, see thumbnails of the photos on your drive and also do asynchronous uploads.

Hope fully the latest version would fix our issues
Thank you.....
With regards

Problems uploading photos to Facebook

Since the uploader is java-based, it'd be worth re-installing Java to see if this helps. Available from java.sun.com, you need the 'JRE' package.
