How to download photos from picasa to computer kittydowner 6/4/09 5:35 PM
I tried the suggestions from Help but when I selected the album that I wanted to be downloaded to my computer, the pull down menu of "DOWNLOAD" is in grey, i.e. inactive. So how can I still do it?

This is my problem too! Can somebody help? I need to save my photos from the Picasa web album to my computer while their captions are saved. I have to remove some of my Piscasa web albums from the web to open up some memory space and at the same time I don't want to loose all the time I spent to put captions on those photos.

I'm also having the exact same problem and I know others are as well.

GOOGLE PLEASE FIX!

Hello -- A few things that may be happening.

a) In order to download albums from the Picasa Web Albums interface, the Picasa software must be installed. You can find it at http://picasa.google.com/
b) If you're trying to download albums from someone else's account, the album owner must enable 'Allow any visitor to download my photos' on the Privacy and Permissions tab of the Settings page.
c) Try clearing your cache and cookies to resolve irregularities on Picasa Web Albums.

If you're a Mac user, you can also use the Picasa Web Albums Uploader to download entire albums that belong to you. Find more information on this here: http://picasa.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=118719

Thanks Magnum - that was it, simple when you know how! I must have unticked that box when browsing through the settings one day. It works perfectly now. Thanks a lot.

Whoops, I didn't exactly point out what it was... Your suggestion "B" of checking the "Allow any visitor to download my photos" setting on the "Privacy and Permissions" settings tab. It was unticked. Thanks again.

I too have the setting set properly.  I have the computer restart.  I have the picasa installed, uninstalled and installed several times.  Still the download option is greyed out.  I just want to download my own albums!  This is very frustrating.

I'm having the same problem, and I have my settings set correctly. Did anyone ever figure out the answer to this? I am on a Mac. Not sure what the Picassa Web Albums Uploader is. I went to the link that Magnum suggested and it doesn't shed any light on that. I already downloaded Picassa to my Mac, but I don't see anything called a "Web Albums Uploader."

I have the same problem! I've downloaded Picasa and Picasa Uploader for Mac and the Download options are still greyed out. My friend has emailed it to me multiple times. I also cleared my picasa cookies. Hmm. Google Please Help???

I figured it out!!  But, I still can't download the album from the web.  

Open up the Picasa program that you had to download.  Under File > Click on Import from Picasa Web Albums.  Then, select which album you want to download onto your computer.  When finished, you may need to right click on a photo from the album and select Locate on Disk to find out where the album was copied.

In Picasa, the album will be stored in the Web Albums section on the left hand side.

Picasa Help - What is the answer to this problem?  I am now having the same issue.  I have checked all the things you said should be in order and my buttons are still greyed.

After some experimenting, I finally found the answer to the "still greyed out" problem:  Restart your Mac.  You could also log out and then log back in; that worked also.  I did not try just quitting Safari and then relaunching it.
