How to quickly download picasa albums?

We are approaching the end of year 2015, it’s time to reflect, count our blessings, declutter (donate/discard/recycle), back-up our stuff, and plan for the future. I decided to download our picasa albums as I realized that the picasa album URLs are not working on mobile phone/tablet (though it still works on laptop) since few days back before 20151228.

To quickly download picasa albums:

  1. Sign in to your google account
  2. Visit https://photos.google.com/collections
  3. Open in a new tab: the album you want to download
  4. Click the "three vertical dots icon" at the top-right
  5. Choose "Download all"; All files in the album will be downloaded in one zip file
