Attach Photo to a Post Update and/or Upload Wall Photos (I'm not talking about to a Link post)
I understand you can add a photo thumbnail, title and description when posting links to Facebook profiles or pages, but, I would like to add a photo to my wall with a post update (so not outgoing link).
Someone already mentioned at http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/908161-attach-photo-to-a-post-update-and-or-upload-wall-p that photos should be uploaded in High Quality.
I just wanted to reiterate this. Right now, photos are shrunk, and they look crappy.
facebook app where you can post actual pics when you add a photo and it dont show up on face book as a link but a pic
not a link but really a photo appearing on the wall. pleeease
As assistant to techno DJ and producer Richie Hawtin, I'm managing two FB Pages and one profile with a total of almost 500,000 fans
http://www.facebook.com/PlastikmanOfficial 115,213 fans
http://www.facebook.com/RichieHawtinOfficial 369,701 fans
http://www.facebook.com/richiehawtin 5,000 friends
and also his other social networks like Myspace and Twitter.
I'm having a hard time finding a service that lets us post photos to all the social networks at the same time, with direct post of the photos on the Facebook Wall and in the photo album. I even made a post about this http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150113444994078
One of the ideas that I got in response is Hootsuire, and I love the interface and iPhone app. All tests went great, everything was posted.. but unfortunately the photos only show up in a link and not directly on the Wall and in the photo albums.
Is this something you're working on? As we prefer to have the photos directly in Facebook so that people can tag and repost and see an archive of photos, rather than being taken to another website.
You can reach me on email email@example.com.
Thank you and best regards,
Assistant to R Hawtin
Attaching an image in Hootsuit posts the image to a Facebook Page's wall and places it in the Wall Photos album
I would like to be able to schedule facebook page status updates that include photos.
It would be great if you would add the ability to post photos to Facebook without utilizing a link shortener. Rather than the current method where a link to the photo gets inserted into the post, we would like to have the photo appear on a Facebook wall or news feed in the same way it does when posting the photo directly through the Facebook interface. Additionally, it seems unnecessary that you cannot post a photo unless you have a Twitter account.
It would be nice to be able to upload photos directly to Facebook photo albums!
It is now possible to attach photos to your wall posts.

To add a photo to wall post you'll need to have a Twitter profile attached to your HootSuite account. This allows you to log into the Owly image hosting service. More information about how to attach an image can be found here: http://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21570832-attaching-images-or-files-to-messages
Hope this helps!

HOW! all the directions tell you the click on the "paper clip" but it only opens a box that says "select Profile" that never goes away even after I click the facebook page I want to upload to, nothing ever populates in the "select profile" box and it never goes to let me add a picture. So Frustrated
uh, ok, HOW do I use this? HS asks to associate with a twitter account for the upload. WTF?
As Doug said, please upload photos in HQ. Right now they are downsized, which makes them look crappy.

Hi, my scheduled photo posts are not showing up on my fan page wall at all and they just went into the album. Is this a known bug? I am considering terminating my premium account if this does not get fixed. Thank you!

Yes, I want to be able to post to my FB wall and to Twitter at the same time. Putting up some link to ow.ly... doesn't do the job. Nobody's gonna click on that link on FB. It is not the same as putting a photo directly on your wall.
You should fix this, otherwise people will stop using it (I certainly will).
(I am talking about the mobile app)

Great! How about an option for higher quality or original size/quality photos added to "HootSuite Photos" Facebook album. The current resizing and compression yield unacceptably low quality photos.
That's not correct, the photos are attached to "Hootsuite Photos" album but after the first upload the images are not shown more on wall
Yes, please, absolutely! I was really hoping to upload directly to Facebook as well!

When I use the Facebook site to include a photo with my status update, that photo is added to the photo album 'Wall Photos'. It would be great if Hootsuite could do this, rather than just making the photo available with a link. Furthermore, I'm tempted to switch from Hootsuite to Sendible because the photo links on Sendible don't include any content besides the image.
