Review of Picasa

Start by importing your images to the program.

In the main library, press Import, and then you come to import the menu.
Here, press the select unit.
You can choose to import from the CD drive, a acanner or from a folder. Now there is a menu asking you about which pictures, and from which folder on your computer you want to use them.

For example you can press the Ctrl key and hold the mouse clicking on the pictures you want to use
Or you can select all, press import all.
You can now choose to omit a couple of pictures. Those who omitted are shown with a red cross. When you have selected the pictures you need, press the exit button in the right corner.


The library is the menu that starts,    every time you go into Picasa.
To the left you find a menu, where you can navigate through all the folders
With pictures located on your computer. If you click on one of the folders all pictures from the folder will be shown and a double-click on one of the pictures takes you to all the editing options.

Here you can see all your pictures you have in various folders on your computer.
If you right-click one of the pictures you can e.g. open, move and delete pictures.

Export to Folder

Now you're about to be finalized.
To conclude, you export your images back to the folder you created in the beginning.
Touch exports down in the right corner of the main library
Now, the menu "Export to Folder" pops up on the screen.
The image size makes it possible so you can change the size of your photos. If you use the tread offender and increase the number of pixels in the image, there will be two versions of your files in the folder. The original size and the new.
You are done and can enjoy your newly edited images.
