    Shotwell and Digikam upload to picasa and many more with ease, haven't used it since Hardy.

    So Picasa being dropped for Linux would be of no loss to any Linux users, however I am afraid what impact it would have done in Windows world where it seems to have a whole lot of fans.

    Picasa being dropped is a loss to some Linux users, no matter what you say, you can't deny their comments' existence, and you can read some of these comments in my last post here.

    Not the END of the world for LINUX users, the percentage of Picasa users in Linux is minuscule to say the least. Also most distros by default come with excellent photo editors which upload to various services with no issues. In early days Picasa was needed by those linux users who had Picasa accounts, not anymore.

    I saw other reasons being stated by Linux/Picasa users. Some of them even stated that they will continue using Picasa.
