How to upload mobile photos to any Facebook album

When you upload photos with your Android or iPhone, snapshots are placed in the "Mobile Uploads" album in your Facebook profile. But what if you want to put them in a specific album? Here's how.

When you upload mobile photos with your Android or iPhone, snapshots are placed in the "Mobile Uploads" album on your Facebook profile.

But what if you want to put them in a specific album, like your album of food photos, kids, or the one for travel? Here's how:

Step 1. In the Facebook mobile app, go to your profile and head to the "Photos" tab. Tap to select the album where you'd like to place the photo.

Step 2. In the upper right, tap the camera button and choose to take a snapshot, or choose an existing photo from your library.

Step 3. Select the photo. Give it a caption, like "homemade soba noodles!", then hit "Upload". Once the upload is complete, the photo will land in the selected album, and your latest upload will show up in the News Feed.

Note: Although the screenshots in this slideshow were taken in the iPhone Facebook app, the same process applies to Android phones.
