Coming from the reverse, in the Picasa Desktop app tagging the photos does not change the photos at all (I know this as mine are never changed in my incremental backups after tagging). The face information is stored in the picasa.ini file linked to a database file in the user profile. When I have uploaded the pictures to Picasa Web the face tags are ...

One way to do this would be to utilize the GoogleCL tool. GoogleCL is a command-line interface (utilizing Python scripts, but the Windows version includes a wrapper so you don't have to manually install and set up Python) to various Google services, including Picasa. (I'm assuming you're on the Windows platform for these commands, but equivalents exist on ...

The only time that storage is shared between the other Google products is when additional space is purchased: https://www.google.com/accounts/purchasestorage In the Google Picasa help section about Google Storage they say that "Free storage space is specific to each product. Picasa Web Albums offers 1 GB of storage for photos and videos only. Gmail provides ...

You can download public web albums but there are a couple of caveats: Although the album is public the owner of the album has to manually allow downloads of the album.

Now that Google seems to be leaning towards "Google Photos" or whatever they're going to call it, you can download your Picasa Web videos. Here's how: Go to the Google+ version of your site ( http://www.google.com/+ ). On the left hand side, click on the "Photos" icon. Find and click on the album with the video you want to download.

There is nothing you can do besides making them private. If the browser sees the picture the browser can store the picture. This is true for any picture on the internet with the exception of pictures embedded in some sort of flash application but still with a hi res monitor you can get a very nice quality screen shot. By checking no printing and no ...

It looks like somebody did something and it might get fixed. From a Google Employee on their official forums: Hi folks, Sorry if I caused confusion with my first post - I meant to say that we're trying to get the Google Reader link fixed in Gmail. Google Reader itself isn't broken. Until we do, you can find the link to Google Reader by ...

From Picasa help site: Picasa Web Albums can be used to backup your original files under the following conditions: The original file is a JPG. The image can be no larger than 20MB and is restricted to 50 megapixels or less. The image doesn't have any unsaved edits. You upload the image at 'Original Size.' In all other cases ...

Its too bad that Google now requires forwarding addresses to be verified, but it was likely a huge security issue when they previously didn't. The same question has been asked on the 'official' Picasa Web Album forum. Looks like the best answer is to use an intermediary email forwarding service that doesn't require verification, such as Gawab

This information used to be buried away under favorites, and could be accessed as follows http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/favorites for what appears to be a full list. Unfortunately, with the blurring of the line between picasaweb and google+, this information is no longer obviously available.

It is not currently possible to merge Google accounts, but it can be done on a per product basis. Otherwise, you will need to find workarounds that are not official Google protocol.

Pictures smaller than 2048 x 2048 pixels are ignored and they don't count as used space, only bigger pictures. So you might worry to clear only those pictures that are bigger than that. Source: Free storage - Picasa and Picasa web albums help

You don't need to switch to Google+ (although you should probably start considering doing so - it is clear that most new work is going into Google+ Photos and PicasaWeb is on the way out). You can go directly to https://picasaweb.google.com/?noredirect=1 and it will leave you at the PicasaWeb album page without trying to redirect you to Google+ Photos.

Yes, you can use Picasa Web Albums without Google+. Currently what happens is that when you try to go to Picasa Web Albums, you are redirected to Google+ Photos, but there you are given an option to go back to Picasa Web Albums: Clicking on the link takes you here. You can directly bookmark this link to directly goto Picasa Web Albums each time.

There is a Windows app called "Social Folders" that is very close to doing it. The only problem is that it has separate folders for each service (ie one for Picasa, one for Facebook) so you would have a bunch duplicates on your PC. I think the developers could fix that with a one line code change... so if you go here: ...

You can't, at the moment. Use Picasa on your local computer. I loved this online feature too, and it's sad that it's gone. However, seeing that the capability appeared only online, and later in the application, I suspect that they removed it from online because it's difficult to merge your face/name assignments from online into your local Picasa ...

I just discovered another way that also seems to update your wall automatically when you post new photos. On your Facebook wall there is a button "Options" below the status update box. Clicking on this will reveal another button "Setting". There you can add your Picasa site. Uploading a picture to my Picasa account automatically triggered an update on my ...

Within Gmail its going to be impossible since as you said, you do not get to see the text of the email inside of the Picasaweb dropbox, so you can't ever "verify" the forwarding address. I've done something similar to this using a desktop client running in the background as another layer of filtering to do things that Gmail can't quite do yet. e.g. ...

While the help doesn't explicitly mention this case, the 'Sync to Web' basics page has the following: Once you've enabled the Sync to Web feature, you can sync the following changes from Picasa to Picasa Web Albums: Added or deleted photos So I would assume that if you delete a folder locally it would also get deleted on the web.

You can enable the upload by email feature of Picasa. This will allow you to setup an email address to which you send an email with pictures that will be posted directly in a Picasa Album. More info here.

I have found a way around this if you have an apps account. I use Google Apps accounts for different non-profits. You can create a Group (photos@domain.com) and forward to the Picasa address that is much longer. Make sure to allow posting from the internet when you setup the group. You can use the group address just like an email address.

You should take a look at Migratr Migratr is a desktop application which moves photos between popular photo sharing services. Migratr will also migrate your metadata, including the titles, tags, descriptions and album organization. I am not sure if it will transfer video or not but it is definitely worth a try.
