In Topic: Help Fast, Please?

Not usually my favorite part of the day, but I'm grateful for those that enjoy it so much! It's especially helpful since I'm 6 hours ahead of U.S. time!

Thank you so much! Your quick answer saved us. It was important to move the pics in by dragging from the full-size photo rather than from the bin. The pngs now have transparent backgrounds! We were able to pull stuff in from the bin, like I do with PSE8, but not only did the pngs not have transparent backgrounds on them, also the pics were much smaller, and harder to work with. I doubt they would have printed with good resolution, either! So - much better now!

The CTRL+G started working after we close both Picasa and PSE and then opened them back up again, so that's taken care of as well. We only had 45 minutes or so after lunch, and after your response came in, to work before she had to leave, but I was able to show her how to use a layout template, and a page came together quickly and beautifully that time!

In Topic: Picasa Folders

In Picasa about 5 sheets of paper will be shown and then if you click on the folder up in the left hand corner where ALL the items in the folder show up.....is there anyway to change how you view so EVERYTHING is right out there....seems like that is how they were at one time.

I'm not sure I follow exactly what you are saying, but look in the menu bar and click on VIEW, and then scroll down to the bottom to "FOLDER VIEW", and look at some of the available options to see if you find one that provides what you are looking for.

In Topic: Thinking Of Dumping The .png Files Of Layered Templates

I'm still new to this, as of a few months, but being a PSE user, I've always wondered what purpose they served! I've been thinking of deleting. Sounds like it's not a bad idea!

In Topic: Organizing Files With Picasa

ya mine is a mess nolw too. Its like all my photos and scrap resources are just thrown at me. But i see... if you tag things then you can use the search to find what you need? Is that it?

I just wanted to see my stuff in its proper folders like in my computer tree but Picasa will not cooperate.

Stephanie - have you adjusted the folder view in Picasa? This was a frustration of mine with Picasa, too, until I found I could make that adjustment. Look in the menu bar - click on "VIEW". Go to the bottom of the list, and you should see "FOLDER VIEW"; go there, and there is a "tree view" available, as well as a sort by date/name/etc. See if that helps. It changed my world! :)
