Picasa scans

I’ve already installed Picasa a couple of months ago.  I’m not happy with the extra scanning of recipes, etc. that it has scanned.  Can I go back and tell it to only scan My Pictures, or is it not retroactive.  I don’t want to uninstall it.

Just go into Picasa’s Folder manager and tell it to remove the folders you don’t want to see in Picasa’s library.  This does not delete them, just tells Picasa not to scan them.

Here’s the video on Folder manager
