How to upload photos from DSi to Facebook

Nintendo DSi DSi, thumbnail 1
To be honest, I'm not sure whether adding another method of uploading embarrassing photos of my friends to Facebook is a good thing, but with the new firmware release for the DSi, that's exactly what Nintendo lets us do.

Of course, as with all these things, it takes a bit of setting up the first time you want to upload a photo. But once completed, it's pretty easy to do.

What I won't show you, however, is how to update your DSi firmware (to version 1.4).

New DSis will automatically come with this software installed so if you have a new DSi, you won't have to do anything. Just follow the steps below. Everyone else will have to download the new firmware to update the DSi's operating system.

The easiest way to do this is to go into the Systems Settings menu - the far left of the DSi main menu. Then select the far right screen [4] and hit the System Update button. This requires you to connect to the internet via wi-fi, so you must have set up wi-fi on your DSi. You must also know your 4 digit pin number [default is 0,0,0,0].

You will also be given the option to download the update when you go to the DSi Shop.

Otherwise, let's upload a photo to Facebook...


On the main DSi menu, select and tap the DSi camera button.




In the camera menu, tap the Album button to upload an photo to Facebook.




The first time you do this, you will see some help screens telling you about the new feature. As you can see here, you need to tap on the 'f' icon above your photo to upload to Facebook.




And, obviously, you will need to have a Facebook account already to upload a photo to it.




This is the photo, I'm going to upload. All I do is tap the 'f' icon on the far right of the menu.




The DSi needs to connect to the internet to access Facebook, so you'll need to be in range of a wi-fi network.




The first time you connect to Facebook, you'll have to enter your username and password.




You enter them using the software keyboard and your stylus.




Your email address will be saved, so you don't have to enter this every time you want to upload, but you will have to enter your password for each upload session.




This being Nintendo, you get loads of check messages to ensure you know exactly what you're doing.




Here's another check message.




This is what you should see once your photo has been uploaded.




And here is my photo on my Facebook page. Neatly, all your uploads from your DSi are grouped into a folder called 'Photos from Nintendo DSi'.
