Default Picasa photo software help

Hi,

This thread initially started with etsy vs. own website and grew into photo questions. Picasa software was recommended.

I downloaded it and am lost. I was thinking it would be a program on my desktop, but it looks like I use it online after logging into google.

Please, any help you can offer would be great.

The main reason I want to use it is to add watermarks and upload to etsy.


Thank you!

Jessica

For picasa, what I do is just crop, "highlight", and add text to water mark.

If I knew how to add pics to posts I would show you how Ido it lol

Ok the first one is the final outcome using picasa only. The first one is the original.

What I did was do the auto color, followed by highlightin it to make it brighter. Not too bright though. Crop and then add text. I usually play around with the size and transparancy of it to "watermark" it. It's the easiest software I've used and it takes not even 5 minutes to do this after I figured it all out.

I don't know if that helped you at all??

I'm not understanding your question really. I open picasa, find my pictures, edit them how I'd like, then export them to whatever file I want to save it in.

Question Re: Picasa photo software help

Wendy,

Do you use Picasa by going online? I cannot find it on my desktop or in my programs menu. Maybe I did something wrong?

Thanks,
Jessica

No I don't go online, I open it from my programs menu. Perhaps you should uninstall it and try again.

Thanks everyone. I think I've got it figured out for now. And, it looks like this will save me about $100! I was planning on spending about $30 for photo software and about $70 for a lightbox.

I've attached my first attempt at editing and adding a watermark. What do you think? Any more tips/suggestions would be much appreciated.

Jessica
