People have no limits on copying photographs from anyplace on Facebook. All you can do is keep your images secret (only visible to your friends). The photographs you pick for your profile picture and banner cannot be private; they are public so that others may discover you. However, if you would like something copied from your profile but not made public, you can send a request to the person who owns the image.
Your images can be copied or downloaded by anybody who has access to your Facebook profile. You may download or copy images as you see them, or you can make a request to Facebook to get all of your Facebook data, including your photos. When you do this, they will send you an email with a link that will allow you to download or copy your photos. You should do this once a year for all of your devices.
You may make photographs private on Facebook or conceal photos on Facebook if you wish to publish cover shots or profile pictures without informing anybody. Posting images on Facebook but not posting them will also help you have a more enjoyable social media experience on Facebook.
To post a concealed photo, go to your Timeline and click on Photos. This will take you to the Photo page on Facebook. Click on the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen and select "Conceal Photo." A window will pop up where you can choose which friends can see the photo. Click OK to submit the photo.
Photos you post should be meaningful to you and your audience. If you post an image that isn't relevant to what you're trying to communicate, then nobody is going to want to look at it. It's important to remember that when you post something to Facebook, everyone can see it so only post content that you're comfortable showing the world!
Another way to add flair to your Facebook profile is by using special photo filters. These filters change the color tone, contrast, and texture of your photo in some fun ways.
Any images you take in public—defined as any location where individuals have no reasonable expectation of privacy—can be uploaded to Facebook without first obtaining permission. If you know the person in the photo, ask if they object if the photo is posted on Facebook. Otherwise, use the "Share" button to share photos from your phone's camera app.
In addition to posting photos you take in public places, Facebook users can also upload photos that were taken with their phones' cameras. These photos can then be tagged by the photographer and others who are present in the picture, which can lead to more friendships being made over Instagram. Of course, when it comes to uploading photos from your phone's camera, you need to make sure you have enough battery life left over for some fun photography!
Finally, Facebook allows users to upload videos that were recorded with a phone or camera. Like photos, videos can be tagged by those involved in the video, which can help friends find them if they're not familiar with the people in the clip. Videos are commonly used on Facebook to show support for causes, connect with schools, and remember events such as birthdays and holidays.
Of course, you cannot post other people's copyrighted material without their permission. If you are unsure about whether or not something is allowed, email the company that owns the copyright before posting.
You can't stop others from storing and sharing photos you make public or share with your pals. I'd recommend making any photos you don't want shared or stored available to "just" you. This means setting the copyright notice, and choosing privacy settings to limit who can see the photo.
There are two ways to limit what you upload: by email address and by device. To limit by email address, go to your Account Settings page, click on Privacy at the top, then Edit Your Email Address Book. From there you can select which friends can add images using one of your emails as the target.
To limit by device, go to your Account Settings page, click on Privacy at the top, then Manage Your Devices. Here you can choose which friends can add images using one of your devices.
This only limits them from uploading new photos, it doesn't affect any photos they already uploaded. If you don't want them uploading new photos either, use these methods to delete their accounts.
The first step in protecting your Facebook profile photo is to log in to your account. Once in your feed, navigate to your personal profile and click on your current profile photo—not the cover picture! Click on the planet symbol to the right of the photo's date. "Who is able to view this?" will now be displayed at the top of your photo.
There are two ways to make your profile pic visible only to you:
1 Select the "Only me" option. This will hide your photo from public viewing but it will still be available for friends to see.
2 Select the "Friends of Friends" option. Only people who know you or your friends will be able to see your photo.
If you'd like others to be able to see your photo, use one of these methods: post it online (e.g., use a site like Takestory), email it to someone, include it in a document (e.g., spreadsheet) or video (e.g., YouTube), or scan it and upload it using Facebook's new scanning feature.
