I really liked this tool, what a shame they discontinued it... For MacUpdate Staff, please refer to http://googleblog.blogspot.de/2012/04/spring-cleaning-in-spring.html where we read "Starting today, the Picasa Web Albums Uploader for Mac and Picasa Web Albums Plugin for iPhoto will no longer be available for download. People can continue to use the uploader and plugin if they are installed. However, we’ll no longer maintain these tools. We strongly encourage people to download Picasa for Mac, which includes upload and iPhoto import features."

Ugh, the 1.5.x update installs Keystone, Google's spyware/auto-update mechanism.

Remove it with Google Update Uninstaller.

I have 1.5.0.1425 which I believe is the latest. The application has not been updated for a loooooong time and is not supported anymore. Sad.

Works very well sice a long time now, isn't needed, but I like it.

Nice piece, works well. There is, however, one reason I will never install any Google software again. When installing any Google software, it installs a startup item (in /Library/Startup Items) that checks for updates in the background, without asking me if I want this etc. If all pieces of software did this, my computer would be doing nothing else than checking for updates all the time. It also does this in Windows btw. Google is a member of the StopBadware organisation that advises people on stuff like this. Google should advise against it's own software. It's badware. So no matter how this software is, it sux.

If you don't want that Google Update crap, do this:

1. Mount the DMG you downloaded
2. Right-click on the .mpkg and 'Show Package Contents'
3. Navigate to 'Contents/Resources'
4. Install 'Picasa Web Albums Uploader' for the stand-alone app or 'PicasaWebAlbumsUploaders' for the iPhoto plugin.

At the end of the installation an error message will appear, but it will work fine AND without the Google Update mess :)

The latest version of the iPhoto plugin works fine with iPhoto 08 and Leopard.

One thing that caught me out: when you run the installer, iPhoto has to be in the root of your Applications folder, not in a subfolder, otherwise the plugin won't install at all. (This is rather stupid, but not any stupider than Apple's Software Update is.)

Following up to blueser's comment, iPhoto 7.0.2 now displays this console warning when launched:

2007-08-30 11:02:38.314 iPhoto[6969] Not a valid plugin: /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/PlugIns/PicasaWebAlbums.iPhotoExporter

And the plugin's tab is no longer available in the Export Photos window.

Would be nice if this was updated to work with the new iPhoto 08

I love it! Main functionality is already there.

There might be a few things that need some touch up. For example, I'd like not having to confirm my login & password when opening Picasa. but all in all, this is a great application!

Biberkopf had trouble on 11 May 2012
I had problems installing this plugin on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with iPhoto v.6.0.6.
The plugin folder was installed into /Library/Application Support/iPhoto/
Apparently, that doesn't work for my configuration. Instead I moved the plugin-folder into the iPhoto application package in the Application folder. This is how to do it:

1. Locate the iPhoto icon in your application folder.

2. Right click (or control-click) the icon to access the contextual menu for the iPhoto icon

3. Choose "Show Package Contents" from the contextual popup menu

4. You will now se a single "Contents" folder inside the iPhoto package. Open "Contents" and you will find the "Plugins" folder. Leave the window there.

5. Go back and locate the installed plugin folder called "PicasaWebAlbums.iPhotoExporter" which was just installed into your /Library/Application Support/iPhoto/Plugins/ folder.

6. Move the folder with the long name to the "Plugins" folder that you left open in step 4.

7. Close the windows and open iPhoto and go to Export. You will now see a Picasa tab.

At least, this worked for me.

Good luck.

This version looked more promising as a video upload seemed to go to completion. However during the completing upload process the following error message appeared:-
[Line 1, Column 585, element gphoto:timestamp] Text content must be non-negative: -2082844800000 (status 400)
Whatever this means, the result is that I still can't upload videos to my Picas web albums.

I am unable to upload .mp4 videos using the standalone Picas Web Albums Uploader. After around 1MB has uploaded the error message "An error prevented uploading from completing. Error NSURLErrorDomain -1" appears.
Using the iPhoto plug-in the Upload option is dimmed if I select an .mp4 video.
This is disappointing as I was hoping at last to be able to upload videos to my Picas Albums.
