First, what you want to do is download the the pictures from FB (on the net) to your PC and into a folder that Picasa monitors, such as My Pictures.  Picasa will then detect them.

Now - there is no download function that I know of in FB.  The only way that this could be done is to right-click on the picture in FB and from the menu that comes up select Save Image As and use that to put the picture into the folder per above.  However, the picture will be small in size - 49 or 50 KB instead of the 2 mg for a picture from your camera.

Finally - I assume that since your friend has shared these pictures with you, you have a right (?) to legally get them and eddit and all, but in the interest of friendship I would check first.

Thanks for the reply.  They are my own pictures that I put on FB, but can't find them anywhere else.  I was hoping I could retrieve them so that I could print an album as a present for my mother-in-law.  I will try this.  I am just wondering if picasa can make the pics bigger?  You can tell I am def not a pro at this sort of thing. lol

Sorry, Facebook is a one-way street; you can post but not download except by tricking it like OldCoach suggests.

Picasa won't "make the picture bigger" because it would have to guess at all that missing data and they don't want to get into that and all the complaints.

If you want to try anyway... download Irfanview (www.irfanview.com) and use the resize function or just use MS Paint.  Depending on the picture, it could turn out ok or HORRIBLE.

use FOTOBOUNCE..

very handy. download all ur facebook pictures to your computer.. i am using it for my own collages.

you could rearrange them in picasa as a collage so that quality is not an issue. Just make the pictures smaller but include alot of them..

well, im trying to use FOTOBOUNCE, from a forum i read, forgot where that was.
am installing it and trying to see if i can retrieve them from facebook to picasa

now there is an add-on for facebook on mozilla too
apparently it retrieves them and saves them to your desktop so you can then bounce them to picasa afterwards

all this sounds interesting but let me try it

and it seems many people are wanting this opportunity too so very soon, i'll post an article on this on my blog equatorlounge.wordpress.com
