New Mac Uploaders released

Monday, October 15, 2007 3:57 PM

Earlier today, our Mac team released version 1.1 of the Picasa Web Albums Uploaders. For Mac users, these tools provide the fastest, easiest way to share photos on Picasa Web Albums. Both an iPhoto plugin (which can upload pictures and albums from within iPhoto itself) and a standalone application are included in the same download.

This release adds support for Apple's iPhoto '08, along with a few other refinements, like an improved installer and the ability to convert keywords from iPhoto to tags in Picasa Web Albums. Under the hood, the uploaders were rebuilt using our public Google Data API, which will make it easier to integrate new features from Picasa Web Albums.

If you're a Mac user, give it a spin, and let us know what you think in the Picasa discussion group.
