Since google is trying to get us all to use Google+, and Google+ only allows one account per person, they have come up with a procedure to merge two accounts.  So, if you have a Picasa Web Album under suzy1@gmail.com and you have another bunch of albums under suzy2@gmail.com you can use this procedure to transfer all the pictures from suzy2 to your main suzy1 account.

BEWARE … this is all handled at the Google servers – once you start the process, you will have no control over it and both sets of web albums will be in read only mode until it is complete.  Lots of people are having problems with this procedure now (May 2012) – check the discussion from the Picasa group before attempting this procedure. Be sure to make a backup first.  And, make sure you are aware if you have a blog using any of these pictures.
