Picasa Web Albums now supports the ability to upload photos to your web albums using email. If you’ve a cameraphone that lets you mail pictures directly from your phone, you can now shoot and post pictures in real-time to your Picasa Web Albums email address and start organizing and sharing them.

To get started, visit the Settings page in Picasa Web Albums and look for the new 'Upload Photos by Email' section. Then, set up your personal '@picasaweb.com' email address for image uploads, which will be a combination of your username and a secret word that you can change at any time. After that, when you email pictures to that address, the image attachments will automatically be placed in your drop box, or whatever album you specify in the subject line. All other email content sent to this address is ignored and discarded. We also won't resize or downscale any pictures you send, although there's a limit of 20 megabytes per email.
