By Dan Gookin

Part of your Google account that you use with your Galaxy Tab includes access to the online photo-sharing website, Picasa Web. If you haven’t yet been to the Picasa website on the Internet, use your computer to visit.

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

The Picasa account should be synchronized and configured automatically with your Galaxy Tab. So if you’ve saved pictures on the Picasa website, you can find them on the Tab. If not, follow these steps to ensure that Picasa is being property synched:

  1. At the Home screen, touch the Apps Menu icon button.

  2. Open the Settings icon.

  3. Choose Accounts & Sync.

  4. Choose your Google account from the list under Manage Accounts.

  5. Ensure that there’s a check mark by the item Sync Picasa web Albums.

    That’s pretty much it.

Any images you have on Picasa web are automatically copied to your Galaxy Tab from now on.

Of course if you prefer not to have Picasa synchronize your images, follow the same steps but remove the check mark in Step 5.

  • Picasa Albums feature the Picasa logo on them.


  • The best way to manage Picasa web images is to go to the Picasa website on the Internet.
