How to upload pictures to Picasa on Mac OS X?

picasa logoPicasa, the online web album from Google which is similar to flickr, photobucket etc. but has a separate tool which can be downloaded to your PC and from there you can upload your pictures or photos to the web album of picasa.

So if you are using an Apple Macbook, or macbook air, then you can download the Picasa web uploader for mac from here.
Install the web uploader app in your mac and then open the “Picasa Uploader” which might be there in your applications folder, or you can easily spot it through the spotlight in your mac.
Dialog box appears asking you to sign into your picasa account. Login and proceed to next window.

Click on the option “New Album” and enter title and description to it. If you want to upload pictures to an existing album, click on “Existing Album”.

In the left section, click on + sign and add pictures from the folders in your mac. You can either select the entire folder, or just drag a few pics to that box which you need to upload.
