Got bored this weekend and decided to play around with Picasa Web Albums. After a little poking around, found the protocol was pretty basic and decided to see what could be done with it. The first thing I decided to do was to reimplement the “client side” functionality. Using the PHP code found here:
You can get a list of albums (including album meta information), a list of photos in an album (including image meta info), have the ability to create new albums, and the ability to upload images to your online gallery. I am also implementing a proxy server which will allow you to upload via Picasa to Flickr, Y! Photos, or Gallery. I should have that part online so you can download it in the near future.
