Smile Picasa download

Hello to everyone!

I installed the Picasa apps from the web store and followed the instructions to download the Picasa software on my Samsung Chromebook and I am not able to open it.

Any idea!

Thanks, this is my first post!

Eddy

If you have a google account just login...then go to picasaweb.google.com. There you can upload and edit your photos...nothing on your computer..just though the web .

You need Picasa extension (by Google). It installs in to you chrome browser search bar on the right. Here is the link to it. Also you will need a Picasa account to link to.

You can’t install the regular Picasa on your Chrome Book. It seems to me you would install, create, and upload to your Picasa on line account from regular PC installed Picasa account with Google to get started.

Thanks Alhanson for your answer. I think I don't have much choice and upload my photos from a regular PC.

Am I right?

It isn't really possible to get pictures from a camera to a chromebook, is it? At least, that's the impression I've gotten - that the chromebook's storage is primarily online.

When looking at the specifications on the Samsung Chromebook, it does not have Digital Media Reader or Slots, Optical Drive (does not say if it has the ability to connect one), yet it does say on the Overview page of the Best Buy site that "2 USB ports - For fast digital video, audio and data transfer." So one would think you can upload from your camera or other data device to the Chromebook. Anyone have a better answer?

I have been uploading and editing my photos from the Picasa extension with Chrome for some time now. The thing I really like is I can edit photos on the fly that are embedded in my web site. You go to you Picasa photo storage at Google with your chrome browser using the extension /click on a album ,,. get to the link - Select photos from your computer link in the drag and drop window. I am guessing because chrome book runs on Linux in the background and Linux would see a USB port at a mount point. It would mount a USB flash dive. If it didn’t why would USB port be there? Clicking on select photo link should open the USB drive contents in a pop up window. Select a photo and click up load. This is worth a try. Put a photo on a clean flash drive and stick it in to your Chrome Book. If this works it should also work for a USB card reader for SD cards. I run a chrome browser on a window XP machine for working, witting, and programming in HTML5.

Sorry but you're only half right there. There is no optical drive, but there is a card reader. From the Samsung website:
4-in-1 Multi Card Slot
Opening on a PC for memory cards. SD: Secure Digital. SDHC: SD High Capacity. MMC: MultiMedia Card.

Features and Specifications - Samsung Chromebook Series 5 Titan Silver 3G Model | Samsung Office

Are you able to upload your photos to Picasa and get a URL link for the photo so you can post it in other places like forums?
