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.
We just uploaded a photograph using our iPhone. One of the things I wanted to show you is the quickness of how everything works. So we go from the photo application. Let's go out to the browser itself. When I pop into Safari, I'm going to go directly to the browser and I'll be loading the Picasa web albums. Now this is a really nice Picasa web albums scenario. I'm going to go to the albums themselves, and I'm going to look at the Drop Box. Now the Drop Box is one of the albums that's created for you when you directly upload using email.
When I click on the Drop Box, I'll be presented with all my different photos that I've uploaded directly. Over the Wi-Fi connection, it's pretty fast. So this orders them in the order that they were uploaded. So you can see here I'm literally browsing and sharing these photographs in Picasa web albums through my mobile device and this is the photo I had just uploaded. You can see that the title, The figaro, is added right there. That just shows you the mobile capabilities, and excellence, and synchronization between the mobile, the email, the online web albums, and Picasa itself.
