Q: I do not want my photos shown over the Internet. It seems like Google won’t allow me to do anything without doing so? Please advise if some update advice. I still have an old program of Picasa never updated
A: Google Photos is entirely online, BUT they are private – for your eyes only – unless you specifically share them. A lot of people think that, just because they see their pictures on the web, means that everyone can. That is not true. When you are seeing your Google Photos, look in the upper right corner of the screen and I’ll bet you see your own avatar (little picture) which indicates that you are logged into your account. If you log out, you won’t see them anymore.
If you’re going to use Picasa, I do think you should update it. Just go to picasa.google.com.
