Picasa Web is "going away" and is being replaced by Google+ Photos. (In fact, if you go to your Google+ photos and to Picasa Web, you'll see that your photos are all in "both" places.) Furthermore, I wouldn't expect to see too many more updates to the Picasa desktop application. Google doesn't want to be making desktop apps anymore.) Further, since Gmail, ...

Im guessing you found the answer by now but I will explain anyway by quoting Google's Denise Ho In the weeks and months ahead, we'll also be enhancing and awesome'ing the photos you've already uploaded to Google+ -- it just takes a while to process billions and billions of pictures :-) In the meantime you can either apply Auto Enhance to existing photos ...

Log into http://picasaweb.google.com and you should be able to find older photos that you don't find in Google Photos. Delete the pictures from there.

According to these sites: http://www.sileo.com/geotagging/ and http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1053234, Facebook does strip geotag info from photos. Bear in mind that is as of late 2011, though. Also, this is Facebook we're talking about, so this could change with no notice, and it is likely to since geotags would mean more data for ...

According to Google Plus, pics that are automatically backed up, at a "standard" resolution (not full-size, but still quite good at 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes), are all unlimited. "You can store an unlimited number of standard size photos on Google+." and "You can upload an unlimited number of videos that are less than 15 minutes long and ...

Upload your profile photo to a photo sharing web application such as Imgur, and point your Twitter profile to the profile photo that you uploaded. Images uploaded to Imgur are anonymous. They cannot be searched and only those people with whom you share the URL (or your public images URL) will be able to see it. Due to privacy concerns, EXIF data or metadata ...

Strangely, you can't delete a picture from a post that you've posted. There's no option to change or remove the picture, and even CTRLA to select all only selects the text. It appears the only way to delete a picture is to delete the whole post, then repost it without the picture.

I had the same problem with an illustration wich I would like to share using 3D effects. So, I discovered that 3D images on Facebook must have aspect ratio 2:3 or below, or conversion will fail. I changed my images aspect ratio (no other changes) and it worked perfectly! Try to do that too!

You just can't. There is no such feature on Google Maps which would allow you to do so. Your only option is to send feedback and requesting such functionality or try to solve it with Google via their feedback system:

LinkedIn, as well as other major websites, can't afford to lock down aspect ratio to a specific variable due to cross-platform support of various devices and browsers. Therefore, correct LinkedIn Page Cover should be between 1192-1536 px for width and 220-768 px height or in aspect ratio notation: between 298:55 - 2:1 (with respect to max/min resolution of ...

It definitely is the aspect ratio. I made all variants with same result (error) on a vertical image and then changed the size to a "square-ish" shape (750x918px) and it worked.

There are now desktop applications for macos and Windows that have specific support for Google Photos. Just point them at the folders you use to store your photos and they'll sync them for you.

Double check that your profile is actually private. If it actually is set to private (i.e only followers can see your posts), then when you try to look at your account while not logged in, or an a non-follower account, it will inform you that only followers can see your content. It will also have a 'requested' button when you try to follow. If you would like ...

This drove me crazy for the past hour, but I think I just figured it out---it seems that your profile image will not display to the address you are sending the email to until they send you an email back.

When you post something on friends' wall, friend will get a notification and it will be visible to friend's audience settings and it will also visible to your audience that you have posted on your friend's timeline. And when you tag anyone in a photo comment who is not your friend, the person will get a notification that you have tagged him/her. You friend'...

You can add a link on a photo by clicking the one encircled with red: Add your desired link on the space provided once you click on that button. If you want to use the photo's permalink, upload the photo first, then get the permalink, and add the permalink on that button. If you don't want to do those tedious stuff, set your permalink in the gear at top ...

You can go to this site and just key in your Tumblr name. Sample output:

Depending on how streamlined you want this process, it seems to be fairly trivial to get the public URL of individual photos using the tools in your browser. When you are viewing the photo (either full screen or just the thumbnail) on Google+ you can select "Copy image URL" (Chrome) or "Copy Image Location" (Firefox) from the right-mouse/context menu. You ...

The steps may be a little different now. Be on your page and then Edit Settings>Tagging Ability and check the box to allow others to tag photos posted

I'd also noticed the web page was down, so left a message on Michael's blog last night and he's fixed the DNS issue that was causing his SortMyPhotostream page to be unavailable. If you try it again now hopefully you'll have access again. See last few comments on his blog post. http://atastypixel.com/blog/sort-your-flickr-photostream/
