Order prints in Picasa Web Album

Picasa Web has been one of the best online album service by providing an one-time 250 MB of storage (compared to the 10 MB per month in Flickr) as well as the high speed and ads-free interface. Today, it added a search function and even partnered with two photo printing companies (Photo Works and Shutterfly) to let users to order prints for their fancy photos. The set up process is fast and painless:

  1. Click the 'View Order' link at the top right corner of your album:

    Update: The search feature isn't available to everyone yet.

  2. Click on the 'Select Print Provider' button:
  3. There are currently two providers (Photo Works and Shutterfly):

  4. Go to any photos (even the ones in other's album) and click 'Order photo' on the right sidebar and you will be brought back to the ordered photos page:

By click on the 'Continue to Print Provider' button, you will then brought to the print provider to continue your purchase. This feature is extremely easy-to-use and you can even order prints for the entire album by clicking on the 'Order prints' button at the top of the album. Now that Picasa is trying to catch up with other online photo albums (e.g. Webshots and Flickr) and I suppose the Picasa Team is working hard to add in the tagging feature.
