Installing Picasa 3 on the Mac is really straightforward. All you need to do is go to the browser of your choice, go to picasa.google.com and it should redirect you automatically to this page. This is the page where you can download the Mac version. Go ahead and click on that now. Clicking OK will download the entire application to your desktop. You can go ahead and close these windows, store them away. On your desktop, you'll see a nice dmg file, go ahead and double-click on that. You will be presented with this Picasa icon.
Go ahead and click on that. It will ask you to make sure that it's been downloaded, go ahead and click Open. You may need to move some of the images out of the way. The Picasa Terms of Service are important thing to read. Go ahead, once you've read it, go ahead and click, I Agree. You want to make sure that it looks at your specific area on your hard drive. There are two choices; either it's going to look at your entire hard drive or only the items specific to your Documents, Pictures and Desktop. I recommend that if your photos are located in this location, go ahead and choose that now and it will automatically index all of your photos that are currently on your hard drive.
This begins the process. You have now successfully installed Picasa and you are ready to begin.
