Can I publish a gallery to my Facebook page?

Updated: 04/28/2014

This is for New SmugMug. Click here for help on Legacy SmugMug.

Publish your SmugMug photos direct to Facebook and easily share your best work with friends, fans and family.

Go to the Organizer.  Select the photos you want to publish to Facebook.  Click the Share button. 

Get Started

1. When you first hit "Publish to Facebook", you'll first need to authorize the connection. Once you agree, you'll see this:

You get the option of publishing your photos to a Facebook album on your personal profile, or to a Facebook Business page that you own. 

2. Next, you can make a new album to house your photos, or choose an existing one.

3. You can choose up to 200 images from your SmugMug gallery to publish. For big batches like that, we'll publish in the background and shoot you an email once it's done. You can keep browsing, sharing, or publish more galleries while you wait.


Safe, Secure and Sellable

Even though you're posting photos to an external site, there are still a few ways you'll be sure your photos are safe. Check out the next box:

Here's the breakdown:

  • Before you finish publishing, we'll ask you to set the maximum image size. This way people can't print the images you post to Facebook. What are those sizes?

  • You can also choose whether or not you want your captions to be included when you publish.

  • Set the link style of links under your published photos. You can set their browser to open the photo in the lightbox, just link to the gallery, or to open a Buy Link for brain-free buying. (Pros love that last one!)

    You can even use our short, URLs or stick with the more traditional SmugMug links.

  • Want to customize the text? Enter a link prefix to tempt your fans to click your links.

If you're a Business or Portfolio SmugMugger, we'll automatically include any watermarks you've applied to your photos so they stay protected.

FYI: Remember that Right-Click Protection only protects photos viewed directly in your SmugMug galleries. Watermark them or limit your display sizes to protect photos you post outside of SmugMug, like to blogs, forums and when publishing to Facebook.
