    Syncing Picasa Web Albums - Is this new?

    In the past when I had gone into Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> My Gmail account I swore there were only 3 options in there. Sync Contacts, Sync Gmail, Sync Calendar. Today I noticed there was a 4th option "Sync Picasa Web Albums", which was unchecked.

    Now I am not sure if this has been there, or I had installed something to enable this. I am also curious where it is syncing this, and how am I accessing them?

    Any ideas? Is this new, or was I just blind?

    Ok, it appears it's from the Gallery3d from Nexus. My Picasa web albums now show up in the Gallery.

    Pretty cool feature!

    This is a feature from 2.1?

    Yes, it must be a feature of Gallery3d from the Nexus, which is 2.1.

    If you don't have it you can find it over in droid hacks you can install the new gallery as a apk by itself without the whole upgrade to 2.1. Same with pretty much every new feature in 2.1 except live backgrounds. I switched back because 2.1 froze on me constantly, even the apk version sux.

    It synced for me. That is, it brought my pictures from the Picasa website down to the Droid. I just cannot figure out how to get the photos I've taken with the Droid camera to automatically sync back to the Picasa website.

    Any ideas?

    Well if I leave the built-in sync to Picasa on, uploading photos with a third party app will mean they subsequently will be downloaded back to the Picasa folder on my Droid thus resulting in two copies of the same photo on the Droid.

    I really would like away for the built-in sync support for Picasa to automatically synchronize on both ends the camera photos and photos on the Picasa website.

    So, if I understand this correctly, I have a Droid and installed the 2.1 gallery and am considering opening a Picasa account for online image hosting. If I do this it will create a 'Picasa' or 'online' folder in my primary gallery view? Will it also show individual folders I created on Picasa within that folder on the Droid? This sounds like a VERY cool feature and I often find myself going to my onlne storage to link an image to someone to see what I'm explaining. If it does all of this am I able to get link info from each image or can I just email the actual image from the Droid? Does that make sense?

    No it doesn't show a "picasa" folder, it shows all the floders in picasa separately.
