1. The process does work, but relies on you to put your uploaded camera photos into albums: my instant uploads go to G+ by date, but do not go into albums that Picasa recoginizes until I manually create an album and put them there…so more than half of my photos are not downloaded when I download my Picasa albums. Is there a workaround?

    It would be nice to be able to set an independent permission setting that would allow selected people to download selected Albums or Photos Incl. photo caption which should be used as the file name and location data where it is available. I post lots of family photos and some family members would like to down load copies of images that pertain to them.

    I tried this process, and I found it works, but only for the latest 100 albums. Older albums did not appear in the zip archives generated. I had to access my older albums via http://picasaweb.google.com, which still provides for complete album downloads. Interestingly, the albums in the zip archives correspond with those displayed by default in picasaweb/lh/myphotos. The older ones are only shown when you press the “Show More Albums” button.
    Anyway – don’t assume the zip archive contains all your albums – you need to check.

    I was trying to download photos shared by friends through google plus. It seems like I can only view the albums, and I have to download one picture at a time. Is there anyway that I can download the full album at one time? It works if they share through picasa album, but not when shared with google plus
