  4. Why will Picasa not send albums to AOL and hotmail? Very annoying at best.

  5. Hi,
    I tried to download an Picasa web album , which I received at my email.
    Now I wanted to download it to my Picasa web album.
    I always could download it, but in last time it says:
    Internal Error 500.
    I tried to contact Microsoft-they cannot help me. What is wrong?

  6. Hi Gisela, the problem is that you need to contact Google support, because Picasa is a Google product, not a Microsoft product. Hope this helps!

  7. I have an old computer that died. How do I recover my pictures?
