                  PATH [PATH ...]

Sync one or more directories with your Picasa Web account. If only one
directory is given and it doesn't contain any supported file, it is assumed to

                        Timestamp origin. ORIGINS is a comma separated list of
                        values "filename", "exif" or "stat" which will be
                        probed in order. Default is "exif,stat".

  Dangerous options that should be used with care

  --max-size MAX_SIZE   Maximum size of photo when using --transform=resize.
                        Default is 2048,2048.
  --force-update [{full,metadata}]
