How to Download Picasa Albums


Picasa Web is an online photo sharing website that lets users organize photos into albums. If a user chooses to make an album public or if she shares an album with you, you can download the entire album -- providing you have Picasa installed. Picasa is a free program for organizing and editing your photos. Designed to work in tandem with Picasa Web, Picasa is the only way by which you can download an entire Picasa Web album to your computer hard drive. Fortunately it is easy to download Picasa and, subsequently, download unlimited photos through it.

  • Open a Web browser and navigate to the Picasa download site. Click the "Download Picasa" button, click "Save" and wait for the file to download.

  • Double-click the downloaded file to run the installation wizard. Click "I Agree" and then "Install." Wait for Picasa to be installed on the computer. Uncheck the box labeled "Run Picasa" and click "Finish."

  • Navigate your Web browser to a Picasa Web gallery. The URL looks similar to "" where "username" is a specific Picasa user.

  • Click a photo album while viewing a Picasa Web gallery. This displays the photos and options for that album.

  • Click the "Download" tab while viewing the album and select "Download to Picasa." Click "OK" and enter your Google username and password if prompted to do so.

  • Click the "Download" button in the download window and wait for the album to download to the hard drive. Picasa simultaneously imports the album for optional viewing and editing in Picasa.
