Moving to Picasa Update

Everything didn't go as well as I hoped, but I fixed all the problems I was coming across...

While moving all my photos from flickr over to Picasa Web Albums I ran into some problems. The original post explained how the whole process works.

  • Picasa albums have 1000 photos limits
  • the python gdata api didn't support video uploads
  • Picasa trimmed whitespace from Album names
  • other small things
The new script includes creates a new InsertVideo method to support video uploads, moves multiple photos at a time, automatically creates multiple albums if there are more than 1000 photos in a set and fixes other small issues. You'll need to install the flickrapi, gdata and ThreadPool packages.
It completely works and is done now though. :)


There is a new version of the script to handle image resizing. Customise the script to control the size to resize to.
