I want to have it so that when I take a picture it automatically syncs to a private folder in picasa, is there a native way to do this? or maybe a third party way?

I don't think you can sync automatically on the Galaxy S at present but I understand it is supported in Froyo which is apparently coming to the Galaxy S soon. In the meantime there is an app or two that does this.

PicPush has a free 30 day trial, then costs $4.99. QRCode for the Android Market below

Docs Pics apparently does a load of things including syncing files to Picasa. It is free.

I've not used either app yet. I'll update if I get a chance to try them.

I believe this is now possible if you sign up to Google+.

Install the Google+ app. Open it. Then under Menu->Settings there is an Instant Upload option with the following description: "Automatically upload new photos & videos to a private web albumn."

There are also a bunch of settings to control it under Instant Upload Settings.

When you activate this and take some photos, they come up under an Instant Upload album in Picasa.

In reality Google should have built 2-way sync into Picasa from the start. – thunsaker Jul 17 '11 at 5:40
Absolutely. I've heard rumours that it is coming in Android 3.0 but not sure. – sickgemini Jul 18 '11 at 2:00
