Move2Picasa Automatically Moves Facebook Photos to Picasa

Move2Picasa is a new web service that lets users automatically transfer all their Facebook photos and albums to Google Picasa with little user intervention.

The service is straightforward – just link both your Facebook and Picasa account to Move2Picasa and then sit back as it migrates all your photos. The time required for the migration will depend on the number of photos you have on your Facebook account, and also on the number of migration requests in the queue. Mine hasn’t started yet, but according to TechCrunch it can take a couple of hours.


Good thing is, you don’t have to keep the page open. As already said, the migration process is totally automatic. Just check back in a few hours to see whether it is done.

The bad thing is, Move2Picasa doesn’t let you control which photos or albums will be transferred. Right now, it’s either all or nothing.

Transferred albums and photos will have the default privacy setting set in Picasa. Also note that only photos are transferred, not captions and comments.


  1. It's not clear to me if this is a "move" or "copy" utility. Does anyone know if after this utility executes are the original photos still on the Facebook server or will they be removed?

  2. Original photos on facebook stay intact.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
