    Photos and the New Bulk Upload Tool

    Hi Folks,

    Does anyone have experience uploading photos using Google's New Bulk upload tool?

    It's not possible to upload photos from a computer. You must submit the photos URL.

    Playing around with Picasa, but I feel like I'm missing something.

    What's the best way to obtain a URL for an image? Photo sharing sites?

    Not sure how many your doing, but what about just dropping them into a folder on one of your hosted websites? Picasa should work fine and its already linked to Google

    Ideally, you'll put the images up in a folder on the clients domain.

    Thanks Dusty. How do you go about uploading a photo to Picasa and then grabbing a link that would be formatted to add using the Google Places bulk upload tool? (I'm good with the upload to Picasa part)

    Re: Photos and the New Bulk Upload Tool

    Colan, is this new? Or is it the same interface and process as they've always had, but with new help files? If it's actually new, what's different about it and do you know when they released the new version?

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it's a new interface. I think any Google accounts that have the new Places Dashboard will also have the new Bulk Upload interface within that same account.

    I am going to say it's been around for a few months.

    Re: Photos and the New Bulk Upload Tool

    I see. Thanks Colan. I think that's just some UI tweaks, and not a new process. SIM Partners are predicting a new and improved bulk management process in this post, and I was just wondering if maybe it was rolled out already.

    Re: Photos and the New Bulk Upload Tool

    Its been a while since I used it, but here is Picasa help: https://support.google.com/picasa/answer/44571?hl=en. I would think linking from a folder on a domain would be easier though. mywebsite.com/images/image1.jpg, mywebsite.com/images/image2.jpg, mywebsite.com/images/image3.jpg, etc.... Sorry, don't have much to offer with bulk uploads.

    Re: Photos and the New Bulk Upload Tool

    Darren, this seems to be the same interface with tweaked features. After checking some of our accounts, it's confirmed to be available to bulk users on both the new AND old Places Dashboards. Here's a good rundown of what's changed: https://support.google.com/business/..._topic=3465911

    Maybe this is a step towards the improved bulk tool predicted in our post? Places accounts that have been using bulk management on the old dashboard still haven't been rolled over to the new dashboard. We're still waiting to see a version that addresses things like allowing social to be merged into bulk managed listings, a faster data push process, etc. (benefits available on the new dashboard). Hopefully this is the beginning, not the end, of Google's bulk tool upgrades.
