How to Add Picasa Albums to Blogspot | Chron.com

Picasa's photo management software lets you upload photos to your Blogger – previously known as "Blogspot" – page. You may upload all photos from an album to one blog post if the album contains 20 or fewer pictures, or you can upload photos to multiple blog posts if your album has more than 20 pictures. Blogger provides options for selecting a layout for your images and offers different image sizes. You may also type information about your photos within the blog post's body and choose a name for the post.

Step 1

Open the Picasa software and click a photo album's name in the left pane. Hold down the "Shift" key and click up to 20 pictures in the album.

Step 2

Click "BlogThis!" in the list of icons at the bottom of the window. This opens a Web browser window. Type the email address and password associated with your Blogger account and click "Sign In."

Step 3

Click the "Select a Blog" drop-down list and select your blog's name. Click one of the picture layout options below "Choose a Layout," including "None," "Left," "Center" and "Right." Select "Small," "Medium" or "Large" under "Image Size." Click "Continue."

Step 4

Type a title for your blog post and type any text in the body if desired. Click "Publish Post" to upload the images to your Blogger blog.


  • If your album has more than 20 photos, shift-click the remaining photos and click "BlogThis!" to upload them to a new blog post.
  • Although the Blogger post won't show any photo captions added in Picasa, you can type captions below each picture within the blog post's body.
