You should send your request to Google instead to this project. It's not possible to retrieve a list of albums without knowing/supplying a valid user name.

So bottom line: if you want to see 10.000 albums you have to create them first at Picasa web yourselves and enter your own username.

I will try to do that
So I think can edit the source code for this software to be able to see more than 1000 albums. (where google rss or somewhere in source code)

Here is an example

I want to download your favorite series but when use PicasaDownloader, can not see all the chapters of the series I want to download.

It seems to be a limit that google has put on the json feed i retrieve to list the albums. In the sources I dit not put a limit anywhere onto the number of abums. I just checked and the rss feed has the same limit of 1000 albums.

I will look into it if I can get the other albums but have serious doubts if it's possible

I had a look at the link you posted (and pressed view all albums and had some coffee).

Unfortunately did the rss link on this resulting listing not show a different url so is also limited to 1000 albums.

The site will btw hit the 10.000 albums limit soon I guess.

So unless I find how to get more in the feeds (the page had a showall=true parameter which fails in the rss/json feeds) there is not much I can do. 

The only way would be to parse the html returned by the url but that makes it very dependend on google code.

As i do not have linux i did not try the google commandline tools for picasa. Maybe there is a clue there in the code somewhere.

I finally found the sulution to get around the 1000 albums limit.

I'm testing it now and will upload a new version soon.

[update #1] Tested it and still hitting the 1000 limit. The method of incremental fetching however works nice.[update #2] Accidently discovered a way that works! But it's not supported.
