I have been a Picasa user for years and have hesitated to go to Google Photos.  What classes should I take first in order to start using Google Photos?  I have created many collages in Picasa and modified photos by cropping, and other editing features of Picasa and I would hate to lose any of that work.  I am finally convinced that I must go to Google Photos and leave my beloved Picasa.  Help!  I surrender.

Thanks for your wonderful teachings.

Hello Patricia,

I’m glad you are ready to start using Google Photos. You don’t have to abandon Picasa’s collage making though … watch this video: 

455.GP-Making Collages with Google Photos or Picasa

As for making the move from Picasa to Google Photos, the best place to start learning would be Episode 132 of our YouTube show, What Does This Button Do? It’s all about making the move from Picasa to Google Photos.

Come back with questions.
