You can open the photo on facebook into its largest format and then simply right-click and save it to your desktop. Then just post it to your profile here.

(Assuming you use a PC and not a Mac)

PM me if you still have problems and I'll help walk you through it.

Tried, it's not working. When I try to upload to DC it says invalid file.
I'll try tomorrow, it's driving me nuts.
Thanks for your help, I'll come knocking if I don't come right ..lol!

Ever since Facebook upgraded their features, the old way of doing things got covered up. Here's how I do it using Firefox (I hope you're not using Internet Explorer. If you are, you should consider switching to a faster, more stable, and safer browser like Firefox or Chrome):

You start out on the photo page like this:



When you find the image you want, press the "F5" key or just click refresh. After that the same photo should look something like this:


From there, just right-click on the photo and click "View Image":



Now you should be viewing just the file. From here you can copy the URL in the address bar:



And paste that URL where you would normally put your photo address:


I hope this helps!

Oh Jeez Louise :( Looks like it will work just fine, I use Chrome. Can I do this if I have already saved the pics on my desktop?

You can but you won't be using the ones you've downloaded. Just follow the instructions above and you mightaswell delete the ones you downloaded
