Picasa 2 and Gallery 2
Just set up my proper Gallery 2 installation on this site. As I’m using Picasa 2 to browse and sort digicam pictures on my notebook, I decided to install the Picasa 2 plugin for Gallery 2. Installation was quick - getting it to run not: had some trouble finding the correct path. In direct contradiction to the what the Import module in Site Admin fo G2 says, you DON’T need to give any file information - just point to the relative folder path where your album to be imported is.
Also, Picasa 2 has an experimental feature to directly export AND UPLOAD VIA FTP an album (”Tools>Experimental>Publish via FTP…”). This works perfectly with Gallery 2 - so getting your pics onto your site is just a few mouseclicks away!
I’ve updated the codex information of the Picasa 2 plugin module for Gallery 2 with this information. Hope it will help somebody in the future.
