    I have 1500 pictures inside many sub folders in Picasa. I want to sync them to my phone (as reduced resolution). I was hoping the do this through Picasa web albums but you can't snyc sub folders.
    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to have access to these iamges on my phone? I could use a PC snyc tool if necessary. But it would be nice to have an automated solution that would "watch" a certain folder and its subfolders.

    transfer them to flikr and set up flikr on the phone. There will be a tab in your gallery to access them directly.

    but BEWARE that if you sync flickr with friendstream your phone will never sleep.

    Plus Flickr is blocked at work, so that will be another problem for me.
    My best bet may be to try a software solution like Doubletwist? But I bet it can't resize images before syncing. I don't want to images to take up 5GB as they do in original size on my PC.

    Not very fancy, but you could just batch convert them and save to your SD card (or phone memory, I suppose).

    I've used IRfan View for several years now. It's a fine [edit]and free[/edit] photo viewer and it'll batch convert large numbers of photos to, say, 25% of their original size and allow you to pick a destination folder for the converted files (It doesn't mess up or alter the original files).

    i have 1,500 art images on my phone. i just simply created a folder art and theyre all ion there, separate from downloaded photos or photos.

    I too would like to know if theres a easier way, for instance what a paint to scroll all the way down through 1,500 images if i need one on the bottom, is there an easier way?

    I have read that if you download the Gallery apk, you can then set your phone to sync with Picasa; including sub folders. There is a 2.1 version a well as 2.2 version that is said to support our 8mp camera.
    I also use Picasa tool pro to upload my phone camera photos to Picasa.
