    and yes, I do have a Picasa web albums account through gmail, but when I got into settings, account sync, and click my gmail accound, it doesn't give me a Picasa option.

    Any thoughts? I've tried uploading a picture to picasa through the browser to force some sort of sync, but that didn't work

    Do you get the new gallery look when you open it?

    The first time I opened the gallery it didn't show me any Picasa albums. Since I was playing with different things I didn't think much about it.

    However a couple of minutes later I noticed the sync icon in my notification bar and sure enough, the albums showed up. So maybe you have to actually open the app for it to notice you have Picasa?

    You uploaded to Picasa but it won't show Picasa albums? Wow that's weird. Sorry I can't be more helpful...

    Go to Settings -> Accounts & Sync settings then look under your gmail account and see if it lists Sync Picasa Web Albums and if its checked.

    He did that already (see the OP). The entire option is missing.

    I read it to fast, my apologies.

    Only other thought would be did you re-check after uploading a picture? I seem to remember the option not showing up until after I'd uploaded a picture when I had the gallery installed on 2.0.1 but I could be wrong about that.

    I still had the install file for the gallery when I also had it installed with 2.0.1. I uninstalled in in anticipation of 2.1. i do remember having picasa before. Now when trying to install the galley app that was for 2.0.1 from astro it says already installed and when trying to unistall it says cannot uninstall.

    UPDATE: I did check the sync settings and Picasa is an option, It was just unchecked. I remember why I unchecked it (too many albums on picasa).

    I may not have a Picasa account, but I did go in to the 2.1 gallery on my Droid, and selected a picture, selected share and Picasa was in there. I selected Picasa and gave an option to sign in.

    Hope this helps.

    This may be a problem if you had the new gallery app from before the update.
    See if you can uninstall it and reinstall it.

    I'm in the same boat. I even uploaded a new photo to my Picasa album just to see if it would find it that way. Still nothing....

    And I didn't have the new gallery app before the update.

    Same as above, no Picasa option. Where the hell is it? To be fair, I didn't wait for the OTA version.

    You say Picasa is there....but don't you mean just the "upload to" option? Isn't there suppose to be a Picasa album?

    From my point of view this is possible. Although I had the new gallery as part of DroidMod I went back to stock before installing the 2.1 update.

    Point being: I had the old gallery when I upgraded and my Picasa works, so I have no idea how the update would affect the Droid for those who still had the new gallery when they did the update.

    And in reading what I just wrote, sorry if it sounds confusing... :)

    From researching, the sync option between phone and Picasa online is only available through Nexus One. We should let either Google or Cooliris know that the Droid now has 2.1 and give us that sync option as well.

    I must have the option because I installed the Nexus Gallery that was ported over to the Droid. I had removed it before I installed the 2.1 update.

    Flan gallery application now available for Android 2.0!:

    However they think they are one inthe same in respect to 2.1 becasue I could not uninstall it or reinstall it. I just showed as installed.
