How to Move One Picasa Folder to New Folder on Mac?

If you want to move photos to a new folder that have previously been upload and synced online, then you have to first delete them from the current online album. Here we have to tell Google to delete the photos from the online folder, because Google handles our photos.

Here are the steps to Move One Picasa Folder to New Folder (non-existing) on Mac:

  1. Open "Picasa" on your Mac.
  2. Select the photos that you want to move.
  3. If the photos you are moving in a folder that has already been uploaded and synced online, then continue to step 4, otherwise skip to step 5.
  4. Right-click on one of the selected photos and select "Block from Uploading" option.
  5. Right-click on one of the photos and select "Move to New Folder..." option.
  6. Enter the name for the new folder and click "Ok" button.
  7. A new folder will be created with the new name with the photos you had selected.
  8. If you had to do step 4, then continue to step 9, otherwise you are done moving photos.
  9. Browse the photos in the new folder and select them. Right-click and uncheck the "Block from Uploading" to upload them to the new folder.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
