Say I upload 100 files to an album in picasa.  Later, I edit a few of them.  It would be nice to be able to say

google picasa post --sync *.jpg

and have it figure out which files were changed and just replace those files.

Also, if you have 100's of albums, there is no option to sync them all at once. It would save lot of time time to have command line that starts to sync an album.

Attached a "simple" sync patch. It means only skips the existing files depending on which tasks are running (post or get). 

By the moment, it does not figure out the changed files. I've started a discussion here:

if is possible to "mount" as a file system , we can rsync it.

Hello, I'm interested in this option. What is he status of this issue?

I've starred the issue, but I wanted to say "me too."  It'd be wonderful to be able to do incremental download and upload.  As a first step, syncing only new files would be great.  It looks like the discussion thread has information about a checksum field that would make detecting changed files feasible.

Would merging the naive implementation be a reasonable thing to do so this bug can move forward? 

The case of photos changing but their identifiers staying the same is something one could encounter trivially, granted. As long as the limitations are made clear, though, I think this patch would provide value to users.
