Calling All Cars! Picasa Help Needed



Help! Murder! Police!

I need your advice.

I have used Picasa forever, and it suits me fine-

plus it’s free.

Apparently while I was out of town,

something went wrong.

In the past when I loaded my photos from my camera

onto my computer,

my photos went two places:

my hard drive in My Pictures


into my Picasa library as well.

It was all automatic.


Now my photos don’t automatically load into Picasa.

I am an automatic kind of gal.

Any suggestions?


Do you load your photos onto your computer with your memory card or with a cable connected to your camera?

Wish I could help. I load from my camera on my desk top pc, and from the card on the laptop. Both go into Windows Photo Gallery (separate computers). Then I only transfer the ones I want to work with into Picasa as needed (again separate accounts). I am pretty sure there is an option to click on Picasa as to what automatically uploads there. I will go take a look and let you know what I find.

In Picasa, under tools, go to Folder Manager and make sure the folder you put your photos in is set to scan always.

It's the only thing I could think may have gotten changes somehow. Good luck.

I take the SD card out of my camera and put it into the slot on the computer to upload my photos.

I am so sorry I cannot help you! My photos load into My Pictures but not Picasa.
Hope you figure it out!

When my pictures load I do it with a cord from my camera-- they go to MY PICTURES and for a while they were going to smile box-- I never figured that program out and I don't do Picasa. Sorry, wish I could help.
I pray you get it figured out. It's no fun when you're not techno savvy...(I'm not.)

Well, I use a memory card and load them directly into Lightroom which creates a folder on my hard drive for each day. Sorry, I don't know what could have changed in your settings! I hope you figure it out. It must be very frustrating!

I do exactly what you do - the photos go automatically to the two places. I hope the advice you get works, because I'll be back to check.

My images load into my computer. Then I go into MY PICTURES then at the bottom of the first image (or any image) it will say EDIT IN PICASA and if I click on that they all load into PICASA.
