Picasa webalbum fetcher

Some days ago I wrote a little tool to download whole picasa web albums. I actually wrote it for my gf, who wanted to download a friends album. I was looking around but couldn’t find any comfortable way to get that done without installing the picasa software.

The tool I wrote is based on mono/gtk# and runs on linux and windows and I guess it should also run on a mac (not tested). If anybody cares for a .NET/Winforms solution – I have that, too. Just ask and I’ll bring it on.

Actually the winforms version is even more mature, because that’s the one I created for my girlfriend but as I use linux myself, I thought I should make an gtk# version for this blog.

I seperated the process of fetching the album into an assembly so that makes it easy for you to implement it anywhere else. Use it for whatever you like.
