Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Problems uploading by email and deleting

ifrit   August 20, 2009, 11:45 AM


I uploaded some photos at 4th of august (by email through Picasa 3) but one of the message arrive many times (and in many different days) and now I have thousands of repeated pictures :(

The second problem came when I tried to delete them. I use the organizer, choose the pictures, choose delete all selected and it looks like work, but the pictures still in their place and I can choose one more time to try to delete them... :(

Very annoying.

You can visit my plus account to see it :p


Greetings from my holidays in Germany.

edit: I just found I had the same problem with photos uploaded at 24th of april (and auto-uploaded many time the same day and 25, 26 & 27)

Hey ifrit,

You've sent them via mail from Picasa. Which mail systems are you using? On which operating system?

I'm asking only because I don't have any incoming mails from you stuck in our processing queue -- so it might be that your mail provider/mail server is re-sending the photos on your behalf?

Hi, Stephen!

Thanks for your fast answer! (as always in 23)

I'm using Picasa 3 with Wine in Ubuntu 8.04. I send the pictures with it and my Gmail account. I don't know how all works behind and yes, maybe is a problem with Picasa. So, what about my other question about deleting? ;)

Thank you!


edit: I'm sorry. I answered this threat from another of my accounts (a free one where I'm no getting any problem)

Ok, I'm trying again and it looks like is working more or less. I have to select all and clic "delete all selected" twice (select and clic) to get it working.

Thanks for all ;)

Hey ifrit,

I'm hoping that the email thing stopped happening; it least I still can't see anything wrong on my end.

On the deleting thing: I can't reproduce this in any of the browsers I'm running (FF3.5, Safari 4, IE8). You should be getting a confirm question ("Are you sure...") and then the option to click Yes in order to delete.

Thanks for you answer, Stephen :)

I get the message but the first time the pictures still there and have to repeat a second time...

In the other side I'm having some problems with Picasa 3 sending by mail option, so I'm trying alternative ways to upload...

1. I tryed to install jUploadr... but I failed :(

2. I also tryed to install the 23 button in Picasa but the link doesn't work to me... (I'm using Picasa 3 in Ubuntu 8.04 with Wine) picasa://importbutton/?url=

Any idea?

Thanks a lot!
