Getting Social with Images:   A “How To” on uploading images from your Instagram & Facebook accounts!

 

  1.       Click the “Upload to Library” button, from the drop down select “Social Networks”(If you are on the basic plan, you will need to upgrade your account to either Essential or Ultimate. You can do this by clicking “Upgrade” after selecting “Social Networks”.)

  3.        You will get the following screens depending on which account you click on. (You will need to sign into your account if you are not already.) **Facebook will ask you to grant permission for Constant Contact to access your account**

  4.        In this example you will see it pulls up my Facebook account and I am now able to select an album (Father's Day 2014) or I can view all images.  Before adding it, it is a best practice to give it a name. To do this, click on “Add Name”. (You can select up to 10 images at once to upload).

Uploading images from Instagram is very similar to how you upload from Facebook.  Let’s go through the steps:

 

  1. Click Upload to Library and select Social Networks

  2. Click on the Instagram Icon

  3. A new window will open asking you for your Instagram login credentials. Fill in your username and password then hit Log in
  4. You will then be directed to the Upload window showing all of your Instagram images
  5. Click on each image that you would like to upload. Note, the images you select will have a blue border around them, to show you which ones have already been selected
  6. Once you have selected all of your images, click the blue button at the bottom left of the window to “Upload Selected Files”

  7. There may be a short wait time while the photos are uploaded to your account. If you choose a larger number of images, this process may take a little longer.  Once the upload is complete the Upload Selected Files button will change to Done.  Click this to exit out of the window. 

That’s it! Once you have connected your Instagram account you can always go back to Upload new photos that you have shared on Instagram.  Also, to make searching for these images easier, there is an Instagram Folder added to your library as soon as you upload images from this social network.
