This teaches you how to upload photos from your computer or phone to popular social media and image-sharing sites. These include image-sharing services Flickr and Imgur, social media services Facebook and Instagram, and cloud storage services Google Drive and iCloud.

Steps

Method 1 of 7:Using Most Websites and Apps

1Open the site or app that you want to use. In order to upload an image to the Internet, you must first open a website or an app that supports photo uploads. Image-hosting sites, social media, and cloud storage sites will all support this function.

If you have to be signed into an account in order to post, make sure that you're signed in before continuing.

If you've never used the service before, you might have to make an account before continuing.

2Find the"Upload"section. This will vary greatly from place to place, but most sites/apps will allow you to upload from the main page.

3Click or tap the"Upload"button. The upload button may say Upload Photo, but usually you'll have to select a camera-shaped icon or an upward-facing arrow icon somewhere in the"Upload"section.

For example, on Facebook, you'll select your status box and then select Photo/Video below the status box.

4Select a photo to upload. On a computer, this will usually entail clicking the Pictures or Photos section of the window that appears, clicking the photo that you want to upload, and clicking Open.

5Post your photo. Select the"Post"button or option. In some cases, this will say Upload, while other sites/apps may have an upward-facing arrow on the page.
