Picasa is not a “format” – it mostly is a viewer and it views .jpg as well as .gif, .mov, .mp4 etc.
To see exactly where and what the photo is:
- View the photo in Google PHotos
- Right-click on it and choose “Locate on Disk”
- That will open the folder where the photo exists and you’ll see the complete name, ending in .jpg (or .jpeg – same thing)
The export feature is usually used to change the quality of the photo.
Does that help?
