In Picasa Web albums I can print the entire page, or download the photo and print. But is it possible to print the photo directly?

If not directly, the following workaround may work for you:

  1. Navigate to the image in Picasa, so that you're viewing a single photo with navigation arrows on each side
  2. Click the Full screen button
  3. Right-click on the image, and:
    • In Chrome or Firefox: Click Copy image address
    • In Internet Explorer: Click Properties, and select the URL address
    • In Safari: Don't have a Mac right now, but a similar option exists
  4. Click on the browser's location bar, selecting the text already there
  5. Type Ctrl+V (or Command-V on Macs) to paste the image address, and press Enter
  6. The image is displayed in the browser - type Ctrl-P (Command-P) to print it

Thanks, works pretty well. Can resize using print preview too. Note you can jump from step 2 to step 6 and I think you get the same result. – sickgemini Oct 15 '12 at 11:26
Oh yeah, that might be possible. I wasn't sure if you were seeing the full-size version of the image in step 1. – Vidar S. Ramdal Oct 15 '12 at 11:29
