There is a dot included to the URL... but when formatting the URL
http://picasa.google.com/mac
it appears that it doesn't work now, however.

It works...

I went to download the Picasa Uploader for Mac and it installed Picasa 3.0 instead...

Yep, http://picasa.google.com/mac/ is live. Picasa for Mac... that only took forever and a day, but finally it's here!!

The new page they have set up links to download Picasa 3.0 @ http://picasa.google.com/mac_tos.html

They must be fading out the Picasa Web upload since this page http://picasa.google.com/mac_tools.html points to the same place. That's how I found it...

This announcement has the link

tested without '/' too
(http://picasa.google.com/mac)
but it doesn't work, time to test later.

[put at-character here]Tony: Thanks, the link you provided works.
Additionally, link http://picasa.google.com/mac (and another ending with /) works now on Tuesday too.

MacWorld's coverage at

(screenshot etc.)

It is worth of mentioning that Picasa for Mac is Beta.

The new version of Apple's iPhoto (announced just now at MacWorld) has face recognition like PicasaWeb

I'm surprised that they haven't updated the Mac software page to include Picasa 3 for Mac.

Google created a Macworld page but failed to show Google Desktop or Sketchup for Mac. Are those apps not important any more for the Mac platform?
