    Facebook Button for Picasa 

    Facebook Button for Picasa.

    After uploading a few pictures to Facebook today, I remembered how handy having the Facebook Button in Picasa was and I thought everyone might not know abou it, so here it is!

    Having the Facebook Button for Picasa makes uploading a one step process.  Well, one step if you use Internet Explorer.  If you’re scared of the security, or lack thereof, in IE (like me) and use Firefox or Chrome you’ll have to enter your password each time.  

    Hint: To avoid having to approve your uploaded photos each time, just click the Enable Extended Access link at the bottom of the screen where you choose what album to put them in.  From that point forword you’ll no longer have to log in to Facebook and approve the photos.

    This is a must have for anyone who uses Facebook and Picasa.

      I click ‘here it is’, and get the other windows that prompt and finally takes me to a page with a small window that says ‘click the installation button below and there isn’t any button?! What gives? I have adobe AIR installed

      This post is years old, so I’ll need to do some research when I get home tonight to see why this isn’t working. I have a feeling that it’s all for naught, because Adobe is killing Air.

      It’s still there. It’s called Picasa Uploader for Facebook. The problem is that it was written in Adobe Air and it’s for Picasa. Adobe has definitely announced that they are killing Air and it’s very likely that Picasa is going away as well. Google is investing all of it’s photography equity into Google+. They’ve recently added a bunch of features to the Photos in G+. If you have several shots of a group, G+ will automatically combine the photos so that it gets the best headshot of each person. It combines several similar photos into animations. It does an amazing job of automatically tweaking photos to make them look better – probably using the NIK Photoshop filters that Google got when they acquired NIK software. It’s kind of like Picasa only better.

    Must Have Firefox Add-ons, Part 2: Facebook/MySpace Toolbars 

    Over the next several days I’ll be giving you my list of must have Firefox Add-ons.

    Facebook Toolbar for Firefox

    Facebook Toolbar for Firefox keeps you logged in, and notifies you of any new messages, friend requests, or notifications.  In addition, you can update you status or search Facebook directly from the toolbar.  It also includes a combo box with quick links to the most used Facebook pages and a sidebar that lists your friends and has links to message, poke, or post to the wall of your friends.  Perhaps the best feature is a ‘Share’ button that allows you to instantly post a comment as well as a link to the current page directly to your Facebook.

    For more information go to the Facebook Toolbar for Firefox home page, or click here to install it now.  (You will need to click ‘Allow’ when asked in order to give the site permission to install the software.)

    Unofficial MySpace Toolbar

    Like the Facebook Toolbar, Unofficial MySpace Toolbar keeps you logged in, and notifies you of any new MySpace activity.  In addition, it includes a link to a style editor for customizing your profile and a button to quickly add a blog entry.

    There are other MySpace toolbars out there, but in my experience the others are limited and ad-laden.

    For more information go to the Unofficial MySpace Toolbar home page or click here to install it now.
