Editor's Note: Picasa was acquired by Google in 2004 and discontinued in May, 2015. Picasa was, essentially, incorporated into Google Photos.

Did you know you can upload pictures to Facebook directly from Picasa? The Picasa Uploader for Facebook will add a button to your Picasa program enabling you to upload directly to your existing Facebook albums or create a new Facebook photo album directly from Picasa.

  • The captions you add in Picasa will transfer to Facebook, but your people tags will not.
  • Picasa 2.5 or higher is required.

Visit http://apps.facebook.com/picasauploader/ and click the large install button to install the uploader.

Picasa's progress indicator will appear in the lower right corner of your screen as the photos are processed and uploaded.

Adding people tags on Facebook will notify your friends when you post pictures of them.
