Bulk uploading pictures to Picasa on Linux

Posted: Nov 24, 2009, 14:15

I was looking for a FOSS tool to upload my recent trip pics to my picasa account and came across picasup. It's a perfect tool if you're the kind who likes to use the terminal and keep the mouse out of the way. All you have to do is this:

  1. Put all the pictures you want to upload into a directory
  2. Name the directory appropriately; that will become your new album name
  3. Fire up picasup with the picup command while in the album directory and give your creds and other information.

This beats the FireUploader addon for Firefox any day for me since I don't have to waste time clicking on things and generally cursing the javascript/xul slowness.
