Difficulty transferring pictures from facebook to Blurb

There are pictures that friends posted to facebook to put in the book of our trip.  I'm using Photoshop.  I have downloaded them and they appear in both photoshop and my PC files.  When I click on them to put them in to Blurb, they don't transfer. 

Thanks

I can't even find the Facebook import link. I see Instagram and others but not Facebook. I agree. Fix needed please.

LoraMarieB, have you searched the Knowledgebase (the tab is at the top of this page)? There are a number of FAQs/articles on importing photos from Facebook.

Are you using Bookify or BookSmart? (or one of the other Blurb tools?) If Bookify go to Blurb's Home Page under the Make a Book menu and select Blurb Bookify Online, on the right hand side of the subsequent page you will see a heading Blurb's Other Bookify Tools, under there is the link to FaceBook Photo Books - is that what you were using? Is it not working? If you are needing a fix for that you'd be better contacting Blurb staff directly (via the Submit A Request menu above) rather than asking other authors to help you - the forums are intended to facilitate the interaction between authors/designers rather than being a route to get help form Blurb staff.

If you are using BookSmart there is not a direct link to FaceBook - you would need to download the photos from FaceBook to your PC then use BookSmart's  Get Photos facility to import them - similarly if you are using Blurb's other tools such as InDesign, Lightroom, etc.

sewginger - I'm not sure I understand your problem - could you be more specific?

If you have the photos in your PC files clicking them will not pop up an option to add them to your book. In BookSmart you will need to Import the photos by selecting Get Photos from the menu on the left of the BookSmart window; in Bookify you will need to upload the photos or use the Bookify Facebook interface described above in my responce to LoraMarieB.
