I’m wondering if someone might be able to help me link my photo up. I’m trying to post from my business facebook page, but when I get to the step to choose the photo to link up, there are no photos available. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
Thanks, Anna

Hi Im like Anna, when I am trying to post the link to my photo, its not showing any pictures to use for my thumbnail, so I tried uploading directly from my computer. I was just wondering if it takes a little time for it to get on this page, or should I try again??

Is there a time period for when the photo had to be taken?

Kristine Logan - May 31, 2012 - 9:04 pm

I was able to post the photo but then it redirected me quickly to take another step and the page brought me back to the home page here. What else am I suppose to do?

Did my photo get entered properly and am I good to go? Or is there more that I should do?

I do not have a blog just yet, rather a fan page on Facebook is all that I have at present. I am new to all of this… please be patient with the low-tech photographer.
