Upload Photos From Picasa To Facebook

I use Picasa desktop tool to keep my photos organized and upload them to Picasa Web albums, however I use too pretty often and was looking for a tool to upload photos from Picasa directly to Facebook.

There are a few different ways to upload photos to Facebook one is a Facebook photo uploader and another is a plugin to upload images to Facebook from Windows Live Gallery, however if you are a Picasa user there is another tool called Picasa Uploader which will allow you to upload images from Picasa directly to Facebook.

To upload images from Picasa to Facebook, follow the steps given below.

Step 1: Download the Picasa uploader application, you will be prompted to launch the Picasa application when you click on the download link.


Step 2: Add the Facebook Button to Picasa by clicking on the Add button.

Step 3: Follow the steps to authorize the application to access Facebook.


Step 4: Select the photos you want to upload to Facebook, and click on the Facebook button from the bottom of the screen.


Step 5: A new window will open up, if you have already authorized access to Facebook, you will see a screen where you can add information about the album.


When the albums are uploaded you will have to personally login to Facebook and approve the uploaded photos, if you do not want to that everytime, just click on the enabling extended access, clicking on this link will show you a screen to authorize the application to upload photos.


If you do not authorize the application to upload photos you will have to login to Facebook and go to your photos and then approve the images.

On the other hand if you allowed the application to upload photos to Facebook, it will show up in your albums.

Pretty easy right, this is definitely a great tool for Picasa users who also use Facebook and will definitely save them a lot of time.

  • Ahh, my wife will love this. It seems like every time we upload pictures, it’s to Picassa, Facebook, MySpace, etc. what a pain. Thanks!

    where do i approve the uploaded photos?

    • @scott – To approve images go to Facebook and visit the album you just created under photos. You can also setup the application itself to auto approve images so that you don’t have to do it every time you upload images.

    Hello Keith

    I have one question. How can I upload the photos along with the tags to facebook from Picasa?

    Thank you

  • Steven

    I got the same question as Sérgio’s, but more specifically, about the name tags featured in Picasa 3.5
    It will be awesome if I don’t have to tag people on facebook all over again!

    Picasa will no longer upload my photos to Facebook. This is the error message I receive
    504 Gateway Time Out nginx/0.8.31
    I tried to say this before —

  • Doesn’t support HD pictures, it makes photos smaller, although FB has been supporting HD for months.
