I have pictures stored on Picasa on my computer, and have recently found that I can't locate many of the pictures that I had stored there. (ones dated before 2010). Can you help?


Using your computer search features search for photos or try Picasa using the feature in the image. Always backup on external drives valuable files!

Hope this helps?

Why have my Picasa files disappeared? I imported 460 pics last night and can't find them or any of the other files. Picasa keeps compressing files.


Picasa saves all the files to the hard drive. You can have many locations for pictures. It is possible the pictures are stored in a directory that is not being scanned continuously by Picasa. Since the files are on the hard drive, even the Picasa data for edits to the pictures are saved to the hard drive. So you could un-install the program and not lose the picture. You might lose the setup for what directories the program looks at. You can see the folders it uses to make the on screen thumbnails. Go to TOOLS -> FOLDER MANAGER. This is where you define the folders for Picasa.

If you imported the pictures from a camera using the import tool, the directory you specified is where the pictures are now. You also had the option to delete imported pictures, or not. If you try to IMPORT again from the main screen, look to the bottom left for the IMPORT TO: drop down and see where it is defaulting. Make sure that directory is being scanned in the folder manager.

Post again if this didn't help and add more information. As to where you were importing from and to. If the pictures still exist on the source, etc.

How can I view my pictures on my card? I have fifty pictures on the card but can not figure out how to view them. I got this camera without directions. I want to be able to look at the pictures while in...


The user manual and other information about your camera are available here:

http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=1260

The camera originally came with a mini USB cable (click here for an example of this cable) that you can use to connect your camera to your computer's USB port.

The camera also came with a "Master CD-ROM" with software on it for working with your pictures. If you do not have the CD ROM, then I suggest that you download the free Picasa software from Google and use that to retrieve and manage your photos.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.
  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
  • Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
  • Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
  • You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.

Hi Amimbue 1985,there are a few ways to upload pictures without using a software disc.

Option1 :

Transfer your photos to your computer with a use of a USB cable provided with your camera.

Connect the USB cable to your camera and computer. Your PC will recognize it as an external storage and you can copy your pictures from it.

How to copy pictures:
1. Go to my computer
2.Select the drive for your camera and go to the folder where all your pictures are
3.Ctrl + A (to select all pictures)
4.Create a folder for your pictures on your local drive (or you may also paste it on any existing folder)
5.Ctrl + V to paste pictures on folders

Once you have a local copy on your computer you may then upload on any web applications that you wish, such as facebook or flicker etc.


Option 2:
You may also use Google's software called Picasa, it's free for downloading.

Please visit this link for the application:
http://www.google.com/picasa/

How to download Picasa

1. Download Picasa by visiting:
http://www.google.com/picasa/
2. Click " download Picasa "
3. Click save file once prompted and save it on your desktop for easy viewing.
(if you are using firefox, wait for it to download and just double click on it to run the application once done)
4.Run the picasa application on your desktop to install the software.
5. It is recommended to restart your computer after installation.
6.Plug the USB cable from your camera and computer and picasa will automatically get your pictures from your camera.

(you may now have the option to upload your pictures )

I hope this helps.

Once you have download and installed the application, it will automatically get the pictures on your camera once plugged in. You may upload it directly to picasa or any web application of your choice.

I am not able to view pics on PC when i transfer pics from camera to PC


I suggest that you install a photo management program like Picasa from Google.
Picasa will allow you to not only view the pictures, but will help you organize and share them as well.
Picasa is free and available in a Windows and Mac version.

To use Picasa, (click here) to go to the download site.
  • At the download site, click the "Download Picasa..." button and select "Open" in the download dialog box.
  • After Picasa has been downloaded to your machine and opened, follow the on-screen directions until Picasa is installed.
  • After installation, start up the Picasa program and allow it to search your computer for pictures.
  • After a few minutes, it will find all of your pictures including the one that you transferred from your camera.
  • You will then be able to arrange and view your pictures as you like.
