- After you have opened Picasa on your computer, click on the picture or album of pictures you want to share.
- Remember you can hold down the shift key to select several pictures in a row, or the control key to select pictures at random.
- Once you have selected the pictures you want to share, click on the Share button. A box will pop up that will allow you to name your album, give a brief description, determine who can look at your web album, a box for a email message, and a box to add emails of those you want to share this album with. You also have the option of letting others contribute to your album by clicking on the box labeled "Let these people contribute to my album."
- After all the information has been filled in, click on the button. Your pictures will then be uploaded to an online web album where you can view them. Emails will be sent, that will include a link, to anyone you shared the album with.
Picasa, a part of Google, is an album storage for your pictures. Go to Picasa and download the program to your computer. Picasa offers photo storage on your computer as well as online. One of my favorite features of Picasa, is the ability to share your photos with others in a web album online. I also like how easy it is to create a photo collage in Picasa. As a photographer, I have often used the Picasa web album feature to share photos with a client. Below are directions on how to create a web album in Picasa and share it online.
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
