I recently tested two new Frugalware packages.
googlecl is a commandline utility, I wanted to try it out as it has browser-based authentication, which is supposed to be compatible with Google Apps, while the API-based method used by picu is not. To make it short, in case you are in a directory containing photos for an album and you just want to upload all of them to an album named after the directory name, you need:
google picasa create --title $(basename $(pwd)) *.jpg
The other package I recently tested is geeqie, it's a replacement (see history here) for gqview I usually use to watch a lot of photos in a directory. And yes, they seem not to break any of the nice feature of the old gqview project, good work! ;)
Update: there is a patch to add sync support, it's usage:
google picasa post --title $(basename $(pwd)) --sync *.jpg
