Post to Facebook – Now with Fan Pages!

Post to Facebook – Now with Fan Pages!

Last week, we introduced a Facebook export feature that allows PhotoShelter users to either send their images to a Facebook album, or post a link on their wall. We received a great reception, but photographers immediately starting asking us for the ability to post to their “Pages.”

In case you’re unfamiliar with the lingo, Facebook users can set up “Pages” which are separate from their personal profiles. This can be pretty handy for their businesses, hobbies, etc. For example, I know Doug Murdoch, but I’m a fan of his company “Think Tank Photo” which has a page on Facebook.

Here’s what the new interface looks like with the “Post on Fan Page” button:


But not only can you post to the Pages you’ve created, you can also post to the pages of which you are a fan.


Once you select the page destination, you can fill out some text that goes along with the Wall post.


Nifty, right? We think this will save you time by avoiding double uploads. More good stuff is in the pipeline, so stay tuned….

    I just noticed that there is no “Share” link along the bottom with the other “Comment · Like · View Gallery On PhotoShelter” text. I think it would be a good idea to include this, or even better, if there was a way for you to add in the Facebook style box graphic that shows “+ Share” inside. This way the feature becomes viral also.

    as i’ve been requesting for over a year now: need “Share” link and ability for EMBEDDED SLIDESHOW as far up/ “above the fold” on the facebook page as possible. viral is what i need, see and share! if you follow your link to the thinktank fb page –, can’t even FIND the photoshelter “pages” feature, bad design meeting bad design…don’t know what’s going on. can’t understand the pushback on this entirely reasonable and easy request.

    You’re not going to get ANYTHING above the fold on a Facebook page. They don’t allow enough customization on a page to do so, so your request is not as easy as you think until Facebook allows for those sorts of things… which I suspect is a long way out, if ever. I agree with a share link.

    OK Brian, that sounds like a reasonable explanation — though I can’t imagine there isn’t a workaround, or short of that an explanation coming from photoshelter on this subject. of anybody i know who has/takes the time to do facebook i know of nobody who has/takes the time to figure out what pages are or to drop below the fold. there must be a more intuitive way for the non “techie”/or non student! And given ps’s niche of simply presenting information in an easier to use, more intuitive interface, i was hoping they would take this (embedding slideshow on fb profile) one on or at least address it directly. still hope they do — even with the obstacles that you point out may stand in their ways.
