An Uploader Update

Monday, October 15, 2007 at 10:16 AM

Today's release of version 1.1 of the Picasa Web Albums Uploaders adds support for Apple's new iPhoto '08. But under the covers, the new uploaders reflect some of the other ongoing work in Google's Mac team. For starters, this release installs and updates via Google Updater to ensure that you are running the latest version.

While our first release used a private API to talk with the Picasa Web Albums server, the new version is built on the public Google Data API interfaces and our Objective-C GData Library. This will make it easier for us to keep up with Picasa Web Albums' new features. For example, the iPhoto export plug-in now can convert keywords in iPhoto to tags in Picasa Web Albums.

Our goal is to keep the Uploaders as quick, straightforward utilities that make Picasa Web Albums readily available to Mac users. You can give us feedback about them at the Picasa Help discussion group.
