There are two ways to add a Geotag to you pictures on Picasa:

Download Picasa For Free

Another reason to love downloading Picasa for free! I got an email from a Digital Camera Help visitor who was having problems saving a slideshow he had created onto a cd to share with friends and family. It seems the cd would play the slides in a different order than they were on the PC! I was not familiar with the software he was using but did tell him that files are usually sorted (and played) in alphabetic order and an easy way to get the slideshow to go in the order you want is to use a number as the file name, like; 001, 002, 003, etc. Of course, renaming all the file names is only practical if your slide show is small!

I also suggested using Picasa and told him, “Using Picasa (free photo editing software from Google) you can save a slideshow in the same order that you had the photos arranged in your folder or album as long as you have the "Include Slideshow" option checked under step one on the "Gift CD" screen.”

The Button Manager can be accessed from "Tools" >"Configure Buttons." Using the Picasa Button Manager, you can add or remove buttons or change the order of your buttons. For example, if you rarely use the "Print" button, you can remove this button, or if you frequently use the "Collage" button, you can make that button first.

Resizing Photos In Picasa

Picasa can resize photos in two ways: when you export photos or when you email photos.

To use the “Export” feature in Picasa to reduce the image resolution (pixel count) and .jpg compression (image quality) of your photos, just complete these steps:

1. Open Picasa.
2. Select your image and press the “Export” button.
3. Under "Image Size Options" select the "Resize To" button and adjust the slider. Please note that the number of pixels you select with this slider determines the length or height of your photo (whichever is longer). The other dimension will be determined automatically in order to maintain the aspect ratio of the photo.
4. Select the desired image quality for your photo using the "Image Quality" drop-down menu:
- "Automatic" will preserve the original image quality
- "Normal" will balance quality and size
- "Maximum" will preserve fine detail for large file sizes
- "Minumum" will yield some quality loss for small file sizes
- "Custom" will enable you to select your own value

In order to reduce the size (in pixels) of photos you wish to send via email, please do the following:

1. Open Picasa.
2. Click "Tools" > "Options" > "Email."
3. Under "Output Options," set the slide bar under "When sending more than one photo, resize to:" to the desired pixel size.
4. Set the "When sending single pictures, resize to:" option to 'XXX pixels, as above" (XXX will be the number of pixels selected with the slide bar in the previous step).
5. Click "OK."
