How to FTP files to Picasa?
« on: March 02, 2009, 08:10:20 PM »
Hi,

I am trying to upload files to Picasa, and I can't figure out what is the FTP address is.  Has anyone done this and has any information about how it can be done?

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,
Vlad.

Isn't Picasa running on your local computer?  I haven't heard of a Picasa Server.

Hi Kirk,

In my understanding Picasa is a Google server (http://picasa.google.com/).  They provide Picasa Client FTP application (version 3) for uploading pictures to their server.  I wanted instead of having another application to do it directly from PM.

Thanks.

Sincerely,
Vlad.

Hi Kirk,

I did more research on this and I should say how to upload files to Picasa Web Albums.  Picasa Web Albums (PWA) is a photo-sharing web application from Google, often compared to programs like Flickr. Here is more information about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picasa_Web_Albums#Picasa_Web_Albums.

I am wonder how can I use PM to upload my pictures to PWA.

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely,
Vlad.

I didn't see any mention of whether or not PWA can be accessed via FTP.  We do not offer a PWA uploader at this time so I think that it currently is not possible to do this from Photo Mechanic.
