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.
Next, I'm going to show you how to upload directly into a social network like Facebook. Now I've downloaded this button directly from Facebook itself, just by searching through applications on Facebook. Then I uploaded it into Picasa, and was able to reorder buttons themselves. Once I've selected the photos I want to share, click on the application itself. It will actually invite me to login. Once logged in, I'll be able to take the photos and I'll be able to upload them to a new album or an existing album that you can see here.
I'm going to go ahead and create a new album. I'll call this my travels demo. And give it a Location, type in London, UK. I'll go ahead and set the Privacy to Everyone. Once you are done, go ahead and Upload. Next, it should redirect you into Facebook itself. Once Facebook loads, it may ask you to login again. Then it will redirect you directly into the new album. Depending on your security settings, you may be asked to authorize the photos you just uploaded.
From here I can do all kinds of things. I can share this album. I can put it on my profile. I can write comments about it. It's inside the world of Facebook. This is just one more way of quickly getting your memories and your images into another service.
