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.
I'm going to talk a little bit more about editing the properties within a particular online gallery. Covered a little bit about album properties themselves, changing the cover, and before we get to the map or Captions, I want to talk a little bit about organizing and reordering, because what I did is I uploaded two of these photographs into the test gallery, and then I uploaded three into the food gallery. What I'm going to do is I'm going to show an example here of how you can organize and reorder these. When you select Organize & Reorder, you are presented with an interface that allows you to literally drag the items and reorder them if you would like.
This method also allows you to set your Sort preference. You can set it by date or by file name. Additionally, you can take any one of these selections and Copy or Move them to another particular online Web Album. In this case, I'm going to do a Move, not a Copy. I'm going to do a Move. So I'm going to hold down my Shift key while I select and I'm going to move them. Now, the default is that it invites you to move them into a new album. Well, be sure to take note of this piece here, which is choose an existing album, and this allows you to move it to another online album.
Select the one that says food. In this case, you can just practice with any of your different media by moving them or copying them from one area to the next. I'm going to select this album and it should redirect me to that food album. Now, let's review what we just did. We just moved two photos from one online Web Album to the next. So it removed it from the test gallery, you can see there is no media inside that. I wanted to show this because if you create a new online web gallery but don't put any media inside of it, this is what you will see.
Down here with the food gallery, I'll click on it and you can see all those photos are there. That's really important, a little housekeeping, if you end up uploading to a different gallery or if you are wondering how to move your media once its uploaded up there.
