  • Unfortunately, Google has not released a version that works with Modern APIs.  Perhaps there's a REST-based API you can use?  You will need to go back to the Picasa forums to find out.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Assuming that you are writing a WinRT Phone app, System.ComponentModel.ExpandableObjectConverter is not a valid object for WinRT.  You can see that it's not listed here:
