    I'm having trouble uploading pictures to Picasa.

    Here are the steps I'm taking:

    1. Tap on Gallery
    2. Tap on Picture
    3. Tap on Share
    4. Tap on Picasa

    Then the screen to customize how I want to upload to Picasa shows up for a split-second (create folder, etc) and then the display goes straight to the new account sign up.

    I DO have my Google Apps account synced with the phone and it's working perfectly in every other way (mail, chat, contacts) and I can access my Picasa Web Albums using the same account (from a computer AND from the phone).

    Anyone have any ideas???

    Confirmed! Same problem here, now fixed.

    This occurs when the email address you use to login to your Google Account is hosted on Google Apps. Android is not yet completely compatible with Google Apps so it gets confused by this.

    You can get around this problem by changing the email address associated with your Google Account to one that isn't hosted on Google Apps (sloppy I know). Once this is done, it gets even more confusing. While you still only have one Google Account, you will setup two separate Google Accounts on your phone. The first will be your Google Apps email/password (not really a "Google Account" but the phone will see it this way) and the sync settings for this account will be ON (mail/calendar/contacts) like usual. The second will be your REAL Google Account (with the new email address) and the sync settings for this account will be OFF.

    This allows apps like Picasa, Listen and Google Checkout to interface with your Google Account without being confused or redirected by your Google Apps account.
