Deleting Photos and replacing with updated ones?

Recently, after taking several photos at a reunion, I was experimenting on how to get them out on the web for others to see.  Being new to Picasa, I was able to upload them, and apparently they were uploaded to Google+.  I didn’t even know I had a plus account, but apparently was a part of when I signed up for Gmail. 

Well, I can see that the photos are out there, but have since I have cropped some of them and also have added TEXT, and captions, and would like to have that information on them when I finally share them. 

Thoughts:   Can one delete the entire album of the original upload? And replace with the  photos that have the TEXT and captions. 

Or, could I create another album name with the updated photos?

 Also, I received an email with a photo that I would like to include.  I there a way to get that email attached photo over to the Picasa folder that has to other photos I wish to share?

 

I am a new subscriber to Geeks on Tour, and kind of excited about working all of my Picasa library, something I have been thinking about for years.  

 

Thank you:

DonK

Good to see you in the Forums Don!

Yes, for several months now, Google has made it so you have a Google+ account just by signing up for a gmail account.  The Google+ photo section is getting very good.  I like it now.  Even if the sharing with Google+ is still a little confusing.

 

As for your editing questions:

Thoughts:   Can one delete the entire album of the original upload? And replace with the  photos that have the TEXT and captions. 

Yes, when looking at an album using Google+ you should see some menu options just above it at the right: Share, Tag people, Organize, Add photos, and a drop-down arrow.  Click that drop-down arrow and you’ll see “Move Album to Trash” 

Or, could I create another album name with the updated photos?

Yes, but I think it’s better to just have one set.  A third, and perhaps best, option is to use Picasa’s Sync option.  Now that you’ve uploaded a group of photos to the web, you should see an album with a green arrow on it while looking at Picasa on your computer.  If you select that, then click on Sync to Web (in upper right) from now on, any changes you make to that album on your computer will be automatically made on the web album

Yes, download the picture from the email to your My Pictures and into a sub-folder.  Then it is on your computer and being viewed by Picasa.  Watch this video: Receiving a Picture in an email
