Using Picasa with Filestack

How can you use Picasa with Filestack?

This is all you need to get started. A simple pick.

Sample Code
filepicker.pick( { mimetypes: ['image/*'], container: 'modal', services:['PICASA'], }, function(Blob){ console.log(replaceHtmlChars(JSON.stringify(Blob))); }, function(FPError){ // console.log(FPError.toString()); - print errors to console } );

Setting up a Custom Picasa oauth application

By default, you do not need to configure anything to start uploading photos from Picasa, Filestack is ready to go out of the box. When a user logs into their Picasa account from your site, the Filestack company application will show up. You can configure it so that your application shows up instead in order to make a more seamless experience for your customers. So let's get started.

  1. Go to and sign into your google account. Now click create project, give the project a name and click create.
  2. Create a new project in your google developers account
  3. Use the side menu to select Credentials under Apis and auth, then click Add Credentials and select OAuth 2.0 Client ID.
    select Credentials under Apis and auth, Add Credentials and select Oauth 2.0 Client ID
  4. On the next page click Configure consent screen. Product name is the only required field for the consent screen. Enter the information you want to display and click save.
    Click configure consent screen
    Configure the consent screen for the Picasa application
  5. Now you can select your application type. Select Web Application and enter in the Authorized redirect URIs field, and click create. You will be presented with your client ID and client secret. Copy these.
    Select Web Application and enter the Authorized Redirect URI
    Copy the Client ID and Client Secret
  6. Now go to the Filestack developer portal and click on Auth Keys, scroll down to the bottom and enter the client ID and the client secret into the Picasa fields for App Key and App Secret and click Save Auth Credentials.
    Enter the App Key and App Secret in the Filestack developer portal
  7. Go and test that you can connect to your Picasa application through Filestack.
    connect to Picasa with the Filestack dialog
    Authorize the request at the consent screen
