Description George Getejanc 2013-07-05 14:41:45 UTC
If i go to Picasaweb, then, i Login, it works, but, it doesn't show any of my photo on google+, i think, the problem is, that, the new picasa is not picasaweb.google.com, it is plus.google.com, and, you can try the exporting to Picasa, not working right.

If i click on the Title of Picasa plugin (it should show me my account, but, it show an error page, like here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/silwanyx@gmail.com

Can you please check this, and correct it maybe to work with new google+ ?

Thanks 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Picasa
2. On the Picasa upload window, not showing my Images on Picasa (google+), but, Login seems to works, it doesn't show any error
3. If you Click on this window, on Title (on green Title: Picasaweb) show wrong location on google, with a error page.

Nothing special on setup, just started the Export on Picasaweb.
Actual Results:  
Picasaweb not working, not showing photos, and show a wrong location, picasaweb not exist, now is google+

The PicasaWeb service have been migrated to G+, but API still the same and work very well. I just uploaded a large amount of photo to my G+ account ?

Hi Gilles

Yes, but, it doesn't show my photos on my albums, or folders, just folders in list, and you can try to click on the Titel of Picasaweb on this plugin, and you see, it open an error page, maybe this to be repaired to show g+, the right location of account.

It will be great, if i can see my photos on my account, to organise all photos, not just to upload them, and have no control, what photos i have duplicate, or so problems, thats what i mean.

Thank you for your reply.

Regards from Switzerland

Joe

I think since Picasa is not available for Linux (STILL!!), and attempting to go to http://picasaweb.com now resolves to plus.google.com/photos this bug needs to be altered, or perhaps a new bug entered, to simply change the name of the service to "send to > Google+". 

Although once on G+ there is an option to go back and view the images in Picasaweb, it is not the default behavior and certainly would be misleading / confusing to new users, as well as current users (as seen by the filing of this bug to begin with). 

Once in G+, if someone wants to move their newly uploaded pictures over to Picasaweb, they can do so. But again, this is not the default behavior any longer.

Here is a screenshot upon going to http://picasaweb.com (which resolves to http://plus.google.com/photos). Posted here for proof of the changed behavior and for reference.

If i'm not too wrong, Google has changed again :

PicasWeb => G+ => GDrive.

Right ?

Since digiKam 4.x we have a GDriceExport tool. This solve this issue ?
