Picasa and Gallery play nice?

Posted in Web2.0 Productivity with tags , , , , , , on December 14, 2009 by Lance Strzok

We have a version of Picasa behind enterprise firewall. It does not and will not link out to the world wide web. One of the nice features of Picasa is that it allows you to upload files to the web, but since we won’t be sending files to the web, it would be nice to send them to our other enterprise image server – Gallery. This would make the files available and discoverable to the rest of the enterprise instead of sitting in some folder with little utility to anyone else. In Gallery you can tag the images, link to them, and embed them in other resources.

So what I am looking for is a feature that when you push the upload files to the web button, have the software log you into your Gallery account, upload the files to your personal or team folder, and initiate the tagging capabilities. In essence, use Gallery just like you would use Google’s images.

So what do you think? Does your enterprise have Picasa? Have you been able to do this?

I would appreciate it if anyone could help save me from recreating the wheel here. Thanks.
