    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.

    Posting to flickr from Picasa 

    How to Upload from Picasa to flickr

    1. Login to your flickr account at http://www.flickr.com.
    2. Click on this link:
    3. At the top of the right column you’ll see something like this (the email address will be different):
      Email your photos to this address:
    4. Make note of the email address created specifically for your account.
    5. Create a contact in your email address book using the email address. You can name it ‘flickr Upload’, or whatever you want.
    6. Open Picasa
    7. Select the photo(s) you want to upload. (Hold down the CTRL key while clicking to select multiple photos.)
    8. Click the ‘Email’ button at the bottom of the screen.
    9. Choose your preferred form of email from the popup.
      (Note: Click the ‘Remember this setting, don’t display this dialog again.’ Checkbox before you choose your preferred email program to always use the same form of email.)
    10. Send the email to the contact you created earlier, or type the email address in the ‘To’ field of your email.
    11. The subject of the email will be the picture’s title.
    12. The body of the email will be the description, so you’ll want to delete the Picasa-generated message body even if you don’t want to add a description.
    13. To add flickr tags to your photo add the following line after your description:
      Tags: First “Second Tag”
      (Note: Tags are like keywords for your photos. Click here to see some of the most popular tags or to search tags. Separate each tag with a space. Tags with multiple words should be enclosed by quotes. Click here to learn more about tags.)
    14. Click ‘Send’.

    The photo(s) will probably appear on your flickr home page in a matter of seconds. (Click ‘Refresh’) While it usually happens this quickly, it has taken up to 10 minutes before, so give it some time if they don’t show up at first.
