    Thanks for writing this up Himanshu! The pictures are great to follow along with.

    I am a developer thinking of creating software that improves the Picasa 2 Facebook experience. It would upload high-res photos, remove the 70 picture limit, and be more reliable instead of leaving you to clean up when uploads fail. If anyone is interested, please show it by visiting
