Picasa is updating
You can subscribe to our free e-newsletters, or become a paid member and be able to view all of the videos in the Learning Library.A recent Picasa update (3.9 build 136.18) broke some of the functionality of the Import feature. You might be able to upgrade by clicking on Help and Check for Updates but more often than not, this won’t inform you about new versions.
The picture above demonstrates both ‘Vignette’ – the dark shadow around the edges, and ‘Museum Matte’ where you can define an inner and outer frame at specified width and color.Some people couldn’t import pictures from their camera at all.I found that I had to click the dropdown arrow to select my camera – when I hadn’t had to do that before.You can put one picture up on the screen twice and apply editing features to just one of them to see the difference.You can also put two different pictures on the screen side by side. If you use Albums a lot, this might just be the one feature to make it worth upgrading!
