Picasa

This article is a continuation from PART 1.

4. Adding images that are already on your hard drive is easy but the class also offers ways to take images from an external device and import them to your computer. We could use the important from command on the file menu but the Import button is faster.

The import tab that opens has a drop down list with options of where two import pictures from.

5. You can choose a folder from here but this is also where you will see the device is connected to your computer. For example if you have a digital camera in a webcam connected they will be available in this drop down list. Let’s see the choices that are available on this computer.

This shows us the import options available on our computer. We have attached a digital camera which is showing up as the E drive. Let’s choose that option to begin importing the images from our camera to our computer’s hard drive. All the pictures on our device appear on the left side of the tab and a large view appears on the right. We could use the buttons under the large image view to rotate the image were to exclude any we don’t want to add. Let’s choose to import them all. The choices for the import destination are at the bottom of the window. Let’s leave the default location of my pictures which use a new folder title. First we need to see the options available.

Let’s choose to name the folder based on the date the images were taken.

We can make selections from the after copying list box to remove the files from the camera after the import process is complete. We could even upload them to Picasa web albums but let’s leave the rest of the settings alone and simply choose the import all the images. The import process has been completed and the pictures have been placed into two folders based on the date the images were taken which is what we specified.
