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 want to say a few words about these exercise files. Now Picasa is an image library, so for a majority of the title, we encourage you to use your own images, because you're going to have the most connection with your images and your memories. Now for the exercise files, we added a couple of the images that we talked about in Chapter 4, and when you do color editing, we just put them in there so if you wanted to follow along and get the same types of results that I was getting and to compare and contrast those against what I was teaching. So if you want to download the exercise files, add it to your desktop and I'll show you real quickly how to add them into Picasa.
Once in Picasa, go up to File > Add Folder to Picasa and then navigate to your Desktop where your specific exercise files are located. Select on the exercise_files, go ahead and select the Travels folder and you'll have the same media that I'm working when editing photos.
