Question about Google Picasa

1 Answer

Hi - When I try to create my collage Picasa not responding pops up. Any suggestions? I have tried countless times to fix this and my Christmas collage is not going to be able to get in time for Christ

I had no problems until about one month ago. I try to create my collage, once I have it perfected, and it immediately goes to "Picasa not responding".

My guess is that your computer's RAM is not large enough to handle completion of the file... because those collages ARE large. First, close all other programs on your machine before working on it. If that doesn't help, try making a smaller final size, and/or using copies of the photos that are reduced in size. You can make smaller copies by exporting them reduced to about a thousand pixels. Picasa has a function to do this, it sends the pics to new folder. Good luck!

What is the purpose of photoshop


Well, it is a way to modify all the different aspects of a digital photo file. Basically, it can improve the look of pictures a great deal. At a more advanced level, you can remove or add things to photos, replace or remove backgrounds, or create artistic paintings and collages. If you want to simply improve regular photos, Picasa freeware is much easier and more satisfying.

Picasa 3 is the latest release of thesoftware from Google, and comes as a much amped up successor to Picasa2.7. Some features have been added, and some functions have beenchanged. Overall, it is an improvement, with a markedly better upload(a lot less failures), some nifty new features, but a slightly buggingand confusing interface. It is a pain to add pictures, the automaticscanning goes haywire on your hard drive (we recommend not settingPicasa 3 loose on your hard drive to scan the folders automatically),and adding folders manually mysteriously fails from time to time.However, the hosting facility is one of the best free ones around, sothis is taking you through some of the interesting stuff you can dowith the software.
[
View All Portraits:
This is a really interesting feature inPicasa. You can view all the photos across all the albums with faces.To the left of the search bar, on the top, click on the face icon.Click on the icon again to get out of this mode, or click on ‘back toview all’. This is a filter, the other filter for photographs availableis all the pictures that are starred.

Upload A Slideshow To YouTube:
Select the ‘Movie’ button in the bottombar of Picasa. The first slide will be a text slide to introduce theslideshow. Rearrange the photos, add captions, select a music, selectthe transitions, and preview the slideshow a few times. Once you aredone, click on save movie, and then use the YouTube upload button inthe interface to put the movie on YouTube. Needless to say, you need tohave a Google account and an Internet connection for this feature towork.

Sync Picasa3 Software And Web Albums:
On the top right corner, above the albumor folder is the sync button. Using this feature automatically savesall changes you have made to your copy of the album to the version ofthe album on Picasa. This works for changes to the file, the tags, andphotos added or deleted to the album. This does not work forre-ordering the photos around in the album and changes made to the filenames.

Touch Up Photos:
This is used to remove spots from thesurface of the lense, artefacts caused due to dust particles or waterdroplets, and scratches and dust from old photographs.

Double-click on an image once it isadded to an album. Under the ‘Basic fixes’ tag, select ‘Retouch’. Usethe ‘Brush size’ slider to select a brush size. Ideally, you shouldselect a brush size a little larger than the size of the artefact youare trying to remove. Click once on the blot, and click to a similarplace elsewhere in the picture. The smaller the brush size, the lessnoticeable the patch up will be. Hovering over different parts of thepicture, you should see the blot getting covered up. You can undo a badpatch in this window itself. Once you are done fixing everything, clickon apply.
If you want to undo your changes, you cannot automatically redo them.

Screencapture Album:
As long as Picasa is running, taking ascreenshot of the screen using the [Print Screen] button will save theimage and add it to Picasa.

Improve All Your PhotosThis feature works to different degreesof effectiveness for different photos, but is one of those buttons thatlooks like magic. If you trust Google more than your photographyskills, select an album go to Picture > Batch Edit > I’m feelinglucky. There is no explanation for exactly what this does to yourphotos, but some photos were improved, some were horribly damaged. Copyall your files to another folder before you try this though, beforesomething goes horribly wrong.

CollageThe collage view in Picasa is ainteresting little feature to give previews for your Web albums. On topof the folder or album, next to the play slideshow button, is the MakeCollage button. Click on this button, and you will be taken to thecollage window. The default collage option is the picture pile, withthree border settings, no border, white border, and instant cameraborder. If your pictures are captioned, the captions will show up nextto the photos in the collage. There are five other collage optionsavailable, mosaic, frame mosaic, grid, contact sheet and multipleexposure. The mosaic arranges pictures in blocks of random sizes. Theframe mosaic displays one image in the centre, and frames it with theother photos. The grid and contact sheet have cells of equal sizedimages, and the multiple exposure mosaic is a strange option tosuperimpose all the images in an album on top of one another. Do notuse this option even by mistake in an album or folder with a lot ofphotos unless you want to crash your computer.

Search For Photos By Colour:
This is an experimental feature inPicasa 3, that lets you search for all the photos with a color scheme.Google searches for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and BWphotos. We wish they would have included a colour picker for thisfeature. Go to Tools > Experimental, and search for and click acolour. The orange search returns everything from red to yellow. Thegreen and blue searches are most accurate. The black and white searchesreturns all pale and grey colors, not photos that are strictly blackand white.

Customise The Bottom ToolbarPicasa 3 allows you to remove the rarelyused features from the bottom toolbar. Go to Tools > Configurebuttons, then remove, add or re-order the buttons as per yourrequirements and save the settings.

Get Rid Of Duplicate FilesTo get rid of duplicate files, go toTools > Experimental > Show duplicate files. Then select one copyof the files and press the delete button.

Copy protect your photosTo automatically add a watermark to allthe photos you upload to Picasa, go to Tools > Options and thenselect the ‘Web albums’ tab. Check the ‘Add a watermark for all photouploads’ checkbox and edit the text in the field. The photos uploadedto Picasa will have the watermark, but the photos on your disk will beuntouched.

Adding A Watermark To All Photos:
To automatically add a watermark to allthe photos you upload to Picasa, go to Tools > Options and thenselect the ‘Web albums’ tab. Check the ‘Add a watermark for all photouploads’ checkbox and edit the text in the field. The photos uploadedto Picasa will have the watermark, but the photos on your disk will beuntouched.

There are several image types that you can try to save it as. I would suggest trying bitmap but be sure to select the highest level of quality and lowest compression. This will result in a large file size however so it may become difficult to send in email or post on facebook. As far as file size goes JPG is your best option but it does not support transparency so you will have to either be sure to not have transparency or be ok with it being black when you save it. When you save as a JPG you need to again be sure to increase quality to the highest level and compression to the lowest.

I created a collage in Shape Collage and saved it as a psd and opened it in Gimp. I can actually choose a photo and move it around but I cannot choose a photo when I just want to rotate it. What am I...


Hi phib577,

You mentioned that you created a collage in Shape Collage and opened it in Gimp, yes you can choose a picture but cannot rotate anymore since the Shape Collage has already formatted the picture as part of the Collage and if Rotated then most likely it will not rotate.

If you want that picture rotated then you will need to use Shape Collage again to be able to edit and rotate the picture that you need to rotate.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

How to merge several photos in one


Do you mean make a panorama photo ? Many cameras have a panorama function that does this automatically - it is a special setting. To do it manually use any photo-editing software like Photoshop or free GIMP or free online such as SUMOPAINT. Put each photo on a separate layer and move them around and erase overlapping portions. When all of them appear nicely aligned flatten the layers. If his makes no sense to you do not worry there is automatic photo stitching software, also free - this page tells about it:
http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/panoramic-software.htm

However if you simply want to make a photo collage you can also do it manually, or use picasa software's create/ Picture Collage function. This arranges selected photos randomly as if on a table-top in one photo.

Stacking multiple photos


It could be that your RAM is completely being used in doing this project.
Try closing all other open programs, including anti-spyware and anti-virus, AFTER disconnecting from the internet.
You perhaps could also purchase more RAM memory.

The Picture It will not work unless it was designed (programed) to work with VISTA. So just un-install it from the Vista machine.
