Experience online photos using Picasa on your TiVo® box

Picasa Web Albums

With Picasa Web Albums on TiVo, you can share your story in pictures with family and friends across the country.

Picasa Web Albums is fast and easy photo sharing from Google. To share photos, create an account with picasaweb.google.com and upload your favorites. Then, let your friends and family know your user name, and they can find your public photos on their broadband-connected DVRs.

With online photo services you can:

  • Sign in to your Picasa Web Albums account to view your own private and public pictures.
  • Quickly find and bookmark your friends' shared photos by searching for their user names.
  • Search for "flowers" or "sunset" and turn your TV into a piece of art with beautiful slideshows.
  • Show off your recent vacation photos directly from your TV.
  • See all the photos your friends took from the comfort of your couch.

My mother has macular degeneration. With TiVo, she is able to see digital pictures through Photobucket on the TV screen. It has improved the quality of her life and I thank you
