Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

Google Earth, Picasa, and Chrome downloads now available in Iran

As an American company, Google is limited by U.S. export controls and sanctions for countries around the globe, which until yesterday included Iran. With some of the software export restrictions now lifted, Google will make Google Earth, Picasa, and Chrome available for download in Iran. Restrictions are still in place against the Iranian government however, and as part of the export licenses...

Picasa Web gets secure with HTTPS support

Most of Google's Web apps already supported SSL-encrypted connections. One which didn't was Picasa Web, though that has now changed -- you can now connect to Google's photo sharing site via https://www.picasaweb.com. As with many other sites, though, not everything displayed on Picasa Web is encrypted. While the home page and upload form are fully encrypted, gallery pages report as being only...

Picasa gets new Web zoom viewer and more EXIF data

Picasa Web Albums, the online half of Google's Picasa software/service duo, has received a new zoom viewer that is powered by Adobe's Flash. Clicking on the familiar magnifying glass that sits next to a photo lets you zoom in or out on a rectangular selection. This feature is apparently being called 'microscope zoom', and you absolutely have to have the Flash plug-in installed for it to work,...

20+ essential programs for your new Windows computer

Our regular readers can probably rattle off a list of their 20 favorite apps without breaking a sweat -- as the comments on this post will no doubt prove. But for our less in-the-know friends, family, and co-workers, it can be challenging to figure out where to download high quality programs that actually do what they need them to do. We've put together an assortment that will help you hit the...

Google Cloud Picker centralizes access to all your Google uploads

Accessing all the files you've uploaded to various Google services is a bit of a pain at the moment. Wouldn't it be nice if the Big G provided some sort of tool that provided simple, centralized access to everything from your YouTube videos to Picasa Web images? Google thinks so, and that's precisely what Cloud Picker will do once you've got access to it. The image above was shared by a...

Google Apps accounts finally get full range of Google services

As a long-time Google Apps user, I was overjoyed when I could finally start using Google Reader with my Apps account a few months ago. And now, Google has announced that all Google services are to become available for Google Apps users over the coming months. After the jump you can watch a beautiful video explaining the change, but in a nutshell, you will now be able to access over 60 Google...

DLS Review: Picasa 3.8 released, now with Picnik editor

Picasa 3.8 was unleashed upon the world a couple of days ago. It brings with it several major features, such as Batch Upload, something called "Face Movie," which creates an animation out of a series of images of the same person, and last but certainly not least, Picnik photo editing. That's right – Picasa can now upload your photo seamlessly to Picnik, and it allows you to edit it there,...

Picasa Web integration takes shape in Chrome OS

You already know Chrome OS is a "cloud operating system," but until recently it really hasn't shown much in terms of integration with Web apps. Not in the open source Chromium Code at least -- Google's dogfood Chrome OS is likely a bit further along. However, while tinkering with Chromium OS on my netbook today (you know, the one I've been using for posting video demos) I happened upon an...

GoogleCL: Your command line might get more love now

With all of the projects that Google's been working on lately, it's easy to forget that not everything has to have a glossy UI to function well. Sometimes a service can function more efficiently with the entire visual element stripped from it, and that's exactly what Google's allowed the geeks among us to do. Users can now interact with several of the most popular Google services via command...

Photovisi offers Picasa-like collage creation, online

Photovisi is a simple online service which lets you select one of a myriad of templates, throw your images, and compile them into a digital collage. The results are very similar to those of the collage-making feature built into Picasa (Create > Picture Collage), but it's an online service. You create your collage by adding images to an online canvas (you can add multiple images at once)....

How to add an awesome Picasa or Flickr slideshow to your website

Picasa is awesome. The way that it integrates with Web Albums is very convenient, and the process of selecting your best images and uploading them to an online album is extremely polished. However, when the time comes to share this album with your friends, you might want to show them something a bit more personalized than a generic Picasa Web Albums link. If you are a professional or aspiring...

Google acquires web-based photo editor Picnik

Google builds a lot of fantastic web-based tools in-house, but it's been known to buy up some really nice existing services instead of reinventing the wheel. Picnik, a popular web-based photo editor, is Google's latest grab. It makes a lot of sense, because Picnik does a great job of cropping and touching up photos, and it comes with a lot of fun effects. If Google plans to reinvent photo-editing...

Download all the Facebook photos you're tagged in using PhotoGrabber

Pop quiz: what's the largest photo site on the web? Flickr? Photobucket? Picasa? Nope, it's Facebook. Like me, you might find that fact a bit surprising, since we don't immediately think of Facebook as a photo sharing site -- that's just one of its features. What's even more interesting when thinking about Facebook as a photo sharing site is that it has a built-in permission system that says...

Move photos from Flickr to Picasa Web, Photobucket, etc. with Migratr

Migratr does exactly what its name suggests -- if you insert an 'e' before the last letter, anyway. It migrates your images from one image-hosting site to another. Other than sounding a bit like an angry person looking for their cheese grater, and moving images around the Web, that's about it. It preserves meta data, descriptions and tags -- and even album organization. What I can't tell you is...
