Google has just released a simple but very useful new feature — one-click upload from Picasa Web to Panoramio. If your photos are geo-tagged and in a public album, simply click the “Upload to Panoramio” button and off they go.
The great thing about this is that it’s fast. Since it’s sending directly from one server to another, it goes very quickly. However, they have a few improvements that could be made.
1) Be able to upload more than one at a time. Right now, you need to click that link and upload each picture individually.
2) Even better, be able to flag photos for Panoramio while you’re uploading them to Picasa, saving a step in the long run.
I would expect both features to eventually make it in there. In the meantime, this is just another way for users to add photos to the already massive collection on Panoramio, making the site more useful for everyone.
Frank has already pushed a bunch of his photos over using this system, and he’s quite pleased with how well it works. More info about this new feature can be found on the Google Lat Long Blog.
