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.
A Sharing control that's brand new to Picasa 3 actually saves you time and a couple of steps. It combines the upload capability with the email capability and it's located in the upper right-hand side here, called Share. Now, what it's going to do is it's going to take any currently selected folder and if you go ahead and select Share, it opens up this new interface. If you look at it carefully, it combines both email, as well as album upload. Let's do an example right now. I'm going to send this to myself.
I'm going to share this and this will just look up your whole list of emails. It will send in an invitation. The album visibility will be set. Here you can see it's set to Unlisted. I can even send a quick note like, "hey, check this out." So in one step, you can see that very quickly they've made it really nice and easy for you to both share and upload. Now again, you are not attaching these photos to the email. You are uploading them, creating the album.
It will generate the link and you can share the photos and the people on the other end will be really happy to get that nice click-through to that web album. So, be sure to use this as a way to save yourself some time and consolidate a couple of steps. Uploading and emailing all at once.
