    I just switched from iOS (iPhone 4) to Android (Nexus 4) for the first time.

    To set up syncing photos from my phone to Picasaweb, I installed Google Plus and enabled Instant Upload. It syncs the camera roll, but not the screenshots. How can I get Android to automatically upload my screenshots to Picasaweb immediately after I capture one? Thanks!

    you can sign up for Google plus and download the app. It will automatically sync you pictures. I think you can set up share with Picasa. I personally don't use Picasa anymore. Just use Google plus.

    You can also use dropbox, it will upload photos and screenshots to your dropbox as soon as they are taken!

    Google Plus doesn't seem to sync my screenshots. And it seems to take longer to sync than Dropbox.

    Dropbox works extremely well. I took a screenshot on the phone and within seconds it was available in the Dropbox folder on my computer! No additional steps required, once it was set up. Thanks very much. Highly recommended. BTW if you want to expand your DB account to 18GB lifetime for $5, here's how (I'm not selling anything here--just recommending something for DB users): https://www.google.com/search?q=site...m+dropbox+18gb

    I actually transfer screenshots to my computer via USB and then upload them via Picasa for Windows, but that's old fashioned. The easier way is to open up screenshots in the gallery app on the phone, long press the thumbnail of each screenshot you want to upload, press the share button in the top right corner, and then select Picasa. From there, you can choose the album.

    I wish this was automatic too.

    Buy the 18GB Dropbox account for $5, install the DB app, and have it sync everything to your DB folder. It will save you about 99% of the time required by your USB method. All you do is take a picture or screenshot and open the DB folder on your computer. There it is!

    Google + only look at the image folder to upload pictures. screenshot is stored in a different folder. if you move the screenshot to image folder using file manager it will sync.

    its not an elegant solution but it should work.
