Open one album that has photos you want to use. Select 'organize'. Then highlight the photos you want. Click 'copy.' A little box will pop up. If you have already created the album to put all the photos in, select 'choose existing album.' Pick the one you want and hit 'select album.' This will copy the photos into the album you want. Then repeat for the rest of the photos. If you have not already created the new album you want to put all the photos in together, type in a title and Picasa will create a new album for you. Then for the rest of the photos in the other albums, you will do the same thing, except you will select 'choose existing album' from then on and put the rest of the photos into the one you just set up.

I have been trying to use the embed photo feature by testing it on this thread. Haven't gotten it to work yet. Might just be easier to post it as usual on here straight from your computer.

Okay, I have figured it out. (Obviously, as per the photo above.) Open your online photo album and click on the photo you want to use. On the right hand side of the page, select 'Link to this Photo'. Check the box that says 'Image only (no link)'. Select the size you want the image to appear on FTF. Highlight all of the text under 'embed image' and copy it. Go to the FTF site. Write what you want to write in your response, select the insert image icon (mountains and yellow sky). It will prompt you to put in a website. Paste the text from Picasa that you copied. When you post your response, the photo should appear.
What's your cats name?

Thank you so much, everyone, for taking on the difficult task of helping me with Picasa. It's so hard to do in just print and I appreciate your patience and knowledge. I'm getting the hang of it. After I successfully do it a few times, I'll get better at it. I have been able to post a few decent photos here on FTF.

Thank you all!!

It is actually a friend's cat named Mage. My friend asked me to take a few photos of him one day. I put them all up on Picasa so he could download whatever he wanted. Unfortunately, Mage passed away several months ago

I didn't realize Picasa was just a storage place for the photos. I was trying to post photos from Picasa. I am a slow learner but I eventually do learn.

That's sad. Looks close to my cat Alvin.

Okay. I was doing so well. Now when I try to post a photo I get the message "remote file is too large". I didn't change any settings. What's going on? I wish I could post pictures without getting all PI**ed off.

You can always upload directly to the site if you have them saved to your computer.

Yes, I know. But I don't think you fully realize my ineptitude here. I know they're on my computer somewhere......but where exactly, I don't know.

I'll keep looking, trying and learning. I don't catch on quick but I eventually catch on. If I don't get frustrated and keep at it, I'll get good at it.

The really stupid part of it all, I posted some beautifully but I can't do it again. *shrugs*

Yeah, they even have similar white spots on the chest. When I was five or six we had a cat with those same markings. I will always have a soft spot for cats like that.

If it is too large on Picasa and you are copying the text, you can change to a smaller size. There will be a box under 'embed image' where you can 'select size'.

If you are trying to download it from your computer, there is a reasonable chance the photos might be in a standard 'my pictures' photo. If that is the case, use the little paperclip at the top of where you are typing the post to add an attachment. Click 'browse.' On my computer, it is set up to next click 'libraries', then 'pictures.' Or you might try, 'computer', 'OS (C', 'Users', '[the name you log in under; might be your first name]', 'my pictures'. If it is an older computer and you don't see a 'my pictures' folder there, maybe 'my documents', then 'my pictures.' Hope this helps.

Yes, It does help. Thank you. When I find the pictures on the computer they are all in "IMG" sort of code and I can't tell which picture is which. There are many of them. How do I know which one is the picture I want to post?
