Darned Picasa

I'm trying to figure out how to add pictures to it. I know I've managed a few but I can never remember what I did.

I want to create new albums so I can sort my pictures. I tried the Help and followed the instructions. Something about holding the Ctrl key while selecting the photos I want and then the pictures are supposed to show up in the Photo Tray. Not working. They sure don't make this intuitive, at all.

I need a 12 year old.


  1. The best advice about computers from my kid, years ago, was "don't worry about breaking it." I took it to heart and tend to mess things up royally but I frequently get things to work, eventually. Here's how I create albums - not sure if it's the right way but it works.
    In Picasa, open a photo you want to put in a new album. Right click, and when the little window opens go to "Add to album" > "New album"
    Another dialog box will ask you to name the album. Then you can select more pictures to put in the album, using the right click, or make more new albums. Good luck.

  2. Debbie, my problem is getting the photo "into" Picasa.

    Re not breaking a computer. Oh, can. I've done it. lol.
