I think he means the non-destructive photo editing/correction of the Picasa app itself so that you can always revert to the original unedited photo. But I could be wrong Wink

I updated to 1.3.4 the other day and now authentication no longer works for me, so nothing is retrieved from my private picasa galleries.

Here is a snippet from the log.
Code:

I was originally tried GoogleReader plugin where I have some authentication problem. BigBellyBilly suggested to try Picasa, as it also has the same authentication protocol.

I have the same problem as with GoogleReader. Authentication seems to fail.

I am using Linuxport.

debug log of trying Picasa:

I just tried on an xbox and it worked fine. When I tried it on the xbox version, I put my email as just the part before "@gmail.com". My old settings on the windows build had the full email address. I changed it but it still is not working on the windows build. I am going to delete the plug and settings and try it again.

Still no go. Same errors in log as above.

EDIT:
Crisis over, updated win32 build to SVN 19607 and all is well.

I am back to having authentication problems again.

I am going to delete the plugin settings and reset it to see if that helps.

EDIT:
deleting the plugin settings and re-setting it worked.

Any plans to add support to access pictures in Favorites (unlisted albums of other users who sent invitations) or view movies stored in Picasa Web albums?
