Questions about Flickr, Picasa, iPhoto and Google+ Photos

What are Mac users doing about photos since Google+?

My current status is to use iPhoto and upload what I want to share to Flickr.

Whether Flickr is going to fade away due to neglect on Yahoo’s part, or whether Google+ is going to take over the world – it looks to me like it might be wise to think about an alternative to my current status.

Which brings up the question above. Here are some questions I have.

  1. Google+ Photos only work with Picasa. Are Mac users installing Picasa in addition to iPhoto?
  2. Can Picasa import photo albums, modified photos, and folders from iPhoto?
  3. Is there a way to upload to an online Picasa space from iPhoto?
  4. Does Picasa import photos from Flickr?
Have you seen posts that answer these questions? (Links welcome, but only one per comment will be allowed by the spam filter.) Are you a Mac user? How are you doing it?

One thought on “Questions about Flickr, Picasa, iPhoto and Google+ Photos

  1. I must say that I am a Mac user but I have never liked iPhoto. I find that it forces me to do stuff I don’t want to do and occupies a lot of space on the hard disk. So I just put my photos in an external hard disk (also have an external backup)
    I use flickr uploader to upload things to flickr.
    I have downloaded Picasa, but must say that I don’t like the way Google+ is handling photos, forcing you into endless albums. Or maybe they have changed some things about it. Also forcing you to show an album when what you want is show a photo.
    I like the size of photo they are showing and the black background.
    I have so many photos on flickr that it will be difficult to change. I will only do that when I am sure the features I want are there
