How to Upload Photos to Picasa from your Android Tablet

Part of your Google account includes access to Picasa web, the online photo-sharing website where you can upload pictures from your Android tablet. If you haven’t yet been to Picasa web on the Internet, use your computer to visit the Picasa website.

Configure things by logging into your Google account on that website.

Your Picasa account is automatically synchronized with your Android tablet. Any pictures you put on Picasa are also found on your tablet, accessed through the Gallery app. If not, follow these steps to ensure that Picasa is being property synced:

  1. On the Home screen, touch the Apps icon.

  2. Open the Settings icon.

  3. Access your Google account.

    Choose your Google account below the Accounts heading. If there is no Accounts heading, choose Accounts & Sync and then choose your Google account from the list under Manage Accounts.

  4. Ensure that there’s a check mark by the Sync Picasa web Albums item, although it might be titled Google Photos.

    That’s pretty much it.

Any images you have on Picasa web are automatically copied to your Android tablet from now on.

If you prefer not to have Picasa synchronize your images, repeat the steps in this section but remove the check mark in Step 4.

  • Picasa albums feature the Picasa logo, as shown in the margin.

  • Images stored on Picasa can be viewed on your tablet, but not edited. To edit or otherwise manage the images, go to the Picasa web website on the Internet.

  • Some tablets feature an Instant Upload icon (shown in the margin) when you view an image. Touch that icon to immediately send the image you’re viewing to the Internet, saving it in your Picasa account’s Instant Upload album.

  • The Instant Upload command might also be accessed by touching the Menu icon.

  • Sometimes you need to use the Share command to send the image to Picasa. You can find that command on the screen while viewing the image. Touch the icon similar to the one shown in the margin, and then choose Picasa from the list. Your image is uploaded instantly.

  • If the Instant Upload button disappears from the screen while viewing an image, touch the screen to bring it back.

  • The idea here is to fill up your Picasa album with images. That way you’ll have those images available on your Android tablet, other mobile Android devices, as well as any computer with Internet access.
