Google Picasa User? RacePix.com Welcomes You!

In the past I may have told a little white lie. I’d been saying that RacePix.com was able to search for photos from Google Picasa. I knew I “could” make it search for photos from Google but as no one was posting photos from there to RacePix.com I never quite finished it. That was until I received an email last Thursday from someone telling me they’d photos from the marathon available on their Picasa account, what did they need to do to make them appear on RacePix.com? Time to get my finger out and get this search functionality working…

I can happily now let you know, without a word of a lie, that RacePix.com searches Google Picasa for photos from races!

If you have photos what do you need to do?

The Google search has a few more rules that have to implemented compared to Flickr.


  • First and foremost you’ll have to get in touch with RacePix.com and let us know your Picasa username to enable us to search your galleries.

  • For every race that you take photos of create a new gallery on Picasa

  • Tag the photos inside them galleries with the tags racepixcom and the unique race tag for each race. The unique race tag can be found on either the race calendar page or the gallery page of each race.

That’s all there is to it. Once you implement them simple steps your photos will appear on RacePix.com. If you’ve any problems or questions simply send us a mail and we’ll be sure to help you out.
