Log-in to your account and then open your profile, by clicking your name on the left-hand side of the screen, next to your picture

Step two
Click Photos underneath your profile picture, and then select the Upload photos tab in the top right-hand corner.

Step three
Press Select photos and an explorer windows will be displayed. Navigate through your hard-drive until you find the images you want to upload and then select them.

Step four
Your photos will begin being uploaded. You'll need to give the photo album a title, a location and whether the images will be standard quality or high resolution.
