In Picasa 3 Essential Training, Dane Howard demonstrates how the latest upgrade of this free program from Google will allow photographers to organize, share, and edit digital photos more easily and effectively than ever before. Dane shows newcomers and experienced users how to archive and share photos from a desktop or online. Exercise files accompany the course, but using personal media is encouraged.
We're talking about editing the properties within a particular online album. This one is going to be talking about adding a location to the photos within your album. Go up to the Edit and select Album map. You'll be presented with an interface that associates your particular photos with their location. Now this can be an exacting or it can be something that you just are approximate. Now if you wanted to just drop them right on to Paris, you can go ahead and do that. Some people like to have more exacting locations. The map interface allows you to do this. Let me first drag-and-drop a place where I had espresso. I remember it was along the Rue Descartes.
By dragging-and-dropping, you can see that there is an icon placed right inside the thumbnail. It means that a location is associated with that photograph. Now, if I select another and hold down the Ctrl key on the PC, I can start to grab multiple at the same time. If all these happened in the specific location, I can drag-and-drop those directly under the map themselves. By clicking on the individual photograph, you will be presented with the number within this particular item. So, you can even see that the Lat and Long is included.
Now if you have a mobile device that has GPS-enabled, lot of the Lat and Long will be included already when you allow that to happen. For example, on the iPhone, oftentimes you'll be enabled to include the GPS with your photo itself. So, a lot of these locations will be included. That's pretty much the ins and outs of locating your photos. Just some words to the wise is make sure that before you add any location on that, these are great for travel photographs, but again, be little mindful if you're doing family photographs and associated with children or loved ones, once you're done, go ahead and hit Done.
Now you've essentially associated locations with these particular photographs. You can edit them at anytime. Go ahead and hit back to the Album, you'll be back at your properties of your particular album.
