Picasa Web Albums is one of many websites for hosting photos online and making web galleries. I for one like the site a lot; I'm not quite a fan of Flickr, for instance.

Up until quite recently, users of operating systems other than Windows or Mac OS X had a problem though – no tools were available for batch uploading. A couple of pictures are not a big deal, one can just upload them via web form, but if you have more than a dozen, clicking becomes very cumbersome. The Picasa client for Linux, available since June 2006 (works under WINE) does not support Picasa Web. Fortunately, Google following the tradition of open standards, recently published the API for Picasa Web Albums.

Update: 2007-06-25.
