Picasa Web Album Name Showing Incorrectly? Check This Tip!

    Why does My Picasa Web Album Name Show as the Wrong Account?

    Picasa Web Album questions flood forums more frequently now,since people are realizing Google + is a powerful peer referral tool. Picasa 3.9  offers many of the editing features that Picnik formerly did,and it is now integrated with Google + in addition to Blogger. For location based businesses, Picasa is a great tool,as it allows you to Geotag or map your photos. One problem many managers of multiple accounts face is pictures from one client showing up in another client;s album ,or even their own personal album.This used to happen to me in the beginning too. These tips should help solve that problem.

    Google support offers the following Picasa Web Albums name tips:

    Your Picasa Web Albums Name

    Your Picasa Web Albums name is displayed next to your profile photo. The process for creating or changing your name differs whether or not you've connected your Picasa Web Albums service with Google Profiles.

Having multiple accounts can cause some problems with cookies in your browser. To be absolutely sure you are uploading photos to the correct account, the following steps should help: If you have a  Google+ profile, Picasa automatically directs you there rather than to  Picasa Web Albums so if you want to work with Picasa Web Albums directly you need to use this direct link https://picasaweb.google.com/home . Make sure you use the following sign out-sign in routing:

Start Picasa Then follow this Sign in,Sign out routine:

  1. Sign Out In the upper right corner. you should see either a blue ‘Sign out’, or ‘Sign in with Google account. To be sure you are using the correct account,sign out.

  • Click the link just to the right of your Google account name or email address. (to the left of Sign out). It should be either Web albums, or Google+ Photos.
