How to Import Albums and Photos from Picasa Web Albums to Orkut

Orkut has rolled out a new feature as part of its brand new version which allows users to import their albums and photos directly from Picasa Web Albums to Orkut – Photos. (If you haven’t heard about Picasa Web Albums yet, the free and easy photo sharing web site from Google, you should definitely give it a try!)

To get started, just click on add from picasa option and you’ll get a pop-up to select the images you want to add from your picasa web albums and share with your Orkut friends.
