Picasa Photo Management

Picasa is free photo management software from Google that helps you instantly find, edit and share all the photos on your PC. Picasa automatically locates all your photos and sorts them into visual folders organized by name, size, or date.


Picasa also makes advanced editing simple by putting one-click fixes and powerful effects at your fingertips. And Picasa makes it a snap to share your photos - you can email, print photos at home, or even make gift CDs.

Download and installation: Basics

  1. Download Picasa for Windows from http://picasa.google.com/

  2. Once the download is complete, double-click the executable file 'Picasa3-setup.exe.'

  3. You'll be prompted to accept the terms of agreement. Click I Agree.

  4. The 'Picasa Setup' dialog should appear. Choose a location on your computer where you'd like to save the application and click Next.

  5. Click Finish to complete the installation.

Picasa System Requirements

The following information is the minimum system requirements of Picasa. If your computer system does not meet these requirements, Picasa will not install.

  • Microsoft® Windows XP, Microsoft® Windows Vista

  • 100 MB available hard disk space

  • 256 MB RAM

  • Microsoft® DirectX 8.1 or higher

  • PC with 300 MHz Pentium® processor and MMX® technology

  • 800 × 600 pixels, 16-bit color monitor

  • Microsoft® Internet Explorer 6 or higher Internet connection necessary to access Picasa Web Albums and to use Picasa tools



Display resolution

In order to run Picasa, you need to have a minimum computer desktop resolution of 800 x 600 and 16-bit color. If your settings don't meet this requirement, you may receive the following message: 'Picasa must have at least 800 x 600 resolution to work.' To troubleshoot this issue, please take the following steps:

Do the following:

1. Right-click on a blank portion of your Windows Desktop.
2. Click "Properties."
3. You should see a "Display Properties" screen. Click the "Settings" tab.
4. Use the slider bar to increase the resolution to 800x600 or higher.
5. Make sure that the "Color Quality" is set to at least 16 bit color. I would recommend setting it to the highest color quality, so your photos appear at their best.
7. Click "OK."

Picasa helps you find and organize all your photos


Once you start Picasa, it scans your hard drive to find and automatically organize all your photos. Picasa finds the following photo and movie file types:

  • Photo file types: JPG, GIF, TIF, PSD, PNG, BMP, RAW (including NEF and CRW). GIF and PNG files are not scanned by default, but you can enable them in the Tools > Options dialog.

  • Movie file types: MPG, AVI, ASF, WMV, MOV.


Open up the Picasa Application at this time

Organizing photos in Picasa

When you first install Picasa, it scans folders on your hard drive and displays any detected photos. These folders, along with the customized albums you create, make up the organization of your photos within Picasa. Within your folders and albums, Picasa displays icons on your images to help you quickly see which photos have been uploaded, marked as a favorite, geo-tagged, and more.




Folders


Folders represent actual directories on your computer's hard drive that contain photos. Changes you make to folders in Picasa affect corresponding folders on your computer's hard drive. For example, moving a photo from one folder to another in Picasa will also move the photo in Windows Explorer We will now take a moment and look in Windows Explorer (not to be confused with Internet Explorer) and look at the folders on each hard drive.

To open Explore, follow these steps:

Right click on the “start” button

From the menu box, left click “Explore”

Click on the + sign to the left of the “My Documents Folder”. This displays all the next level of sub folders.

Click on the “My Pictures” Folder and view any sub folders or files in this folder. Normally this is what you want Picasa to scan for updates.

Albums


Unlike folders, albums exist only in Picasa. For example, you might create an album called 'Pictures with Grandma,' and include photos from various folders on your computer. Unlike Picasa folders, your albums don't correspond to real folders on your hard drive -- so when you delete or move photos from an album, the original files remain in their original locations on your hard drive.
