I was looking for a FOSS tool to upload my recent trip pics to my picasa account and came across picasup. It's a perfect tool if you're the kind who likes to use the terminal and keep the mouse out of the way. All you have to do is this:
- Put all the pictures you want to upload into a directory
- Name the directory appropriately; that will become your new album name
- Fire up picasup with the picup command while in the album directory and give your creds and other information.
