How to Import Photos for Your Blog into Picasa

By Amy Lupold Bair, Susannah Gardner

A popular editing platform is Picasa. But before you can edit a photo for your blog, you need to get it into Picasa. Follow these steps:

  1. With Picasa installed on your computer and running, connect your camera to your computer.

    You can also put your camera’s storage card into a card reader or printer, if that’s how you usually move photos from your camera to your computer.

  2. Click the Import button in Picasa.

    Picasa loads the Import screen.

  3. Use the Import From menu to select the device containing your photos, or identify a folder already on your computer.

    Picasa connects to the device, and displays the available photos.

  4. Select the photo or photos you want to import, and click Import Selected. Or, click Import All to bring the photos into Picasa.

    Picasa imports the image(s) and displays them in the Library.
