Picasa Copied All Pictures on my computer.

Picasa copied all pictures on my computer (embroidery designs, etc) and added these as others in my pictures.  Where are these located on my computer so I can delete them and they will not take up all of my computer space?  It even took the faces of everyone and made separate pictures of them (faces only).

Nope, Picasa has not made *any* copies of your photos, it is simple showing you the pictures on your computer.  If you right-click on any picture and choose, “Locate on Disk” it will show you the location of the picture on your computer. It's only there once.  If you delete it, it's gone. 

As for faces, same thing – Picasa is just identifying the facial parts of pictures – it is not copying anything.  Check out this article, with video, on how to see the whole picture from a face.
