Picasa Transitioning to Google (Part 2)

Took me a little longer to get back to this; but as promised, the following is some information on how to move your photos from Picasa/Google Photos.

Staying with Google Photos?

Remember (Refer to Part 1 for last week’s article), if you are perfectly fine with the move to Google Photos; there’s nothing to move.    You can keep using Picasa on the desktop, but now you have the choice to upload to Google Photos.

  1. Right-click on the photo and choose “Upload to Google Photos…”
  2. Return to Google Photos, Refresh your web browser if you are already logged in and whala!

Moving from Google Photos

There are a couple of options available on how you can move your photos from Google Photos.

If you haven’t heard the news, Google announced on February 12th that they will begin the transition to Google Photos over the next few months.  If you are utilizing Picasa (desktop or web), I’ve outlined a timeline along with information if you choose to make the transition to Google Photos.  Just because Google is phasing out Picasa, doesn’t mean you have to use Google Photos. Hint; Hint.

Warning to those with Seagate Hard drives

warningPublished today from Petapixel is a warning regarding bad hard drives from Seagate.

Seagate was hit with a class action lawsuit today by consumers who claim that the company’s hard drives “failed to live up to the advertised promises” by failing and causing the loss of data.

Before I tell you my story…If you are not sure what giclée is; Giclée (pronounced “zhee clay“) printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers.  Giclée printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale while preserving the original.
