When it comes to launching new web services, Google seems to be the best in the business. After bringing forth Google+ and Swiffy, Google has introduced another useful web service known as Google Takeout. It provides the utility of taking out your saved data from numerous cloud services offered by Google. With Google Takeout, you can download anything from your saved Gmail contacts to Picasa pictures.
All you need to do is to login with your Google account to view the available information that can be extracted. For example, you can download your saved contacts, Google Buzz bookmarks, Picasa web albums and profile information.
You can either download data from all your Google accounts or go to the Choose Service option to select services for download data from. To download your data, click Create Archive.
You will be shown a preview of the available informationfor downloading, along with the size of each file. Click Download to begin downloading the archive.
Your data will be downloaded in the form of a compressed Zip folder, containing separate folders for each type of data.
For example, your Picasa albums will be located in the Picasa folder, whereas a separate folder will contain your save contacts in the form of contact cards.
