Picasa Web needs a proper backup solution. Everything is okay if you want to backup your photos TO Picasa Web, but it's not working properly the other way around. But this is what I need.
Hey, isn't that the idea of the cloud, to have everything on there? Upload from different devices to the web. Managing on the web. But then, I want to make a backup. And that's on my drive. This is a must. So, now the only thing I can do, is importing the photos from the camera/smartphone into my computer and then upload it from there and back it up. That's like 2004. This is not what I understand of a cloud-service then.
The Picasa-Software doesn't work correctly. No matter if I'm trying for Win or GNU/Linux (with wine). Backing up your local photos to the web is easy. Backing up your cloud photos to your computer is impossible. All software I found, that do so, is only for public albums. All workarounds seem to download the 1600x1200 resolution only. It's a shame. Google, please, do something.
