    guess you would have to have Picasa installed on both computers and have sharing setup for the folder they are in...

    If you are already networked between the two computers then it should be easy

    Hi My photos are on an extra drive I have. Not in picasa export folder.
    The drive is partitioned into 3 and one third is just called and used for photos.
    All I know how to do is share a folder

    On the remote computer (the one not directly connected to the shared hard drive) you can start Picasa and choose the Import button and in Select Device choose folder...

    Then you navigate to the shared drive/folder over your network and set it up just as if you had the folders locally on your hard drive.

    personally I would take Picasa out of the picture ...no pun intended...

    I would first try to get the images/folder shared thru window explorer...


    you still don't say if Picasa is installed on both boxes...

    If the computers are already connected, just right click on the drive in question and select Sharing and Security. Create a new share, give it the proper permissions, and you're done.
