OK, I finally took the plunge and downloaded Picasa. I noticed that when I search for "papers", I get my papers plus things like layout examples. I want to see the layout examples that use the embellishments that I am searching for but I don't want to see them when I am searching for papers. Can I fix that somehow? (I also get things like paperclips.)
How do you add an external hard drive to your search? I opened my wireless EHD but when I click on Tools, Folder Manager, I get the colored wheel and it says Picasa is not responding. It doesn't do that if I don't have the external hard drive opened. (It's wireless, if that makes a difference.)
Everything that's in an images EXIF (under Caption) is also searched. It all depends on how much information the designers added to the EXIF.
Picasa is the same as nearly all search engines, it looks for every instance of the word even if it's only part of a bigger word.
I usually search for more specific things than paper, so this doesn't happen very often to me.
