Awesome program. Free download from google. Best interface ever. I love the smooth scrolling. Very easy to use. Just wish you cold remove one picture from Picasa without removing it from the album or deleteing it from disc. Wish it could arrange pictures by folder controlled by the albums in the programs. I would also like if it could have sub-albums instead of separate ones for better catagoration.

This is a wonderful software that will allow even neophytes to do basic photo editing to produce great looking photos. And, best of all, it is free!

WHY do I have to select any source for image downloads after installing Picasa??? These clueless clowns now give you TWO options 1) scan ALL hard drives or 2) Scan my documents, my pictures, desktop, etc.

The original version (2 yrs ago?) allowed you install and THEN select the sources to scan........there was NOT some either/or mandatory garbage.

I only wanted to scan certain folders of an external drive and have been sitting here for 10 minutes while it scans my main drive (which I DID NOT want).

In an apparent attempt to make Picasa idiot-proof (giving you two choices after the install) they have screwed it up. If they wanted to go this route the SHOULD HAVE provided a third option - custom set up.

M O R O N S !!!!

To add keywords in a batch in Picasa, do a multiple-select of the photos in a folder and then bring up the keyword dialog (Ctrl-K). Your keyword now applies to all the items.

I've been using Picasa for a few years and recently I've noticed some of my images are in the picasa.ini file which I tried to open but nothing helps, even uninstalling the Picasa as picasa help section suggested didn't help.

Maybe someone knows how to open these .ni files.

Thanks in advance,

Picasa is hard to use. It does not explain itself to the user.
