There is also a Picasa Web Upload module to add a button to Picasa, allowing you to upload to your gallery from within the application itself. Note that this module only allows you to upload the image and filename, but not any captions.

iPhoto (Mac OS X)

Export your pictures from iPhoto to Gallery simply and quickly with the iPhotoToGallery plugin. For Mac OS X only. Supports both Gallery 1 and Gallery2, but you'll need to download the plugin first.

Windows XP Publishing Wizard

There is a Gallery 2 module for the Windows Web-Publishing Wizard and Gallery 1 has it as a built-in feature as well.

  • With Gallery 2, you need to install and activate the Publish XP module, which comes with documentation on how to access it.
  • With Gallery 1, point your web browser to http://www.example.com/gallery/publish_xp_docs.php and follow the instructions.

As the name implies, this only works on Windows XP (and Windows Vista). The advantage is a very close integration with the OS, which means very non-technical users will probably have an easier time with this than with other more complex tools.
