upgrading from Picasa 3.0 to 3.9 (or 4.0)

I am a new member as of today! I have Picasa 3 already but not used much but have lots of pics on it.

Q is:  Do I have to uninstall 3 before installing 3.9? If so, I’Confusedm not sure my pictures are backed up cuz I don’t know how to tell.

Welcome to Geeks on Tour!  Thanks for joining.

No, you don’t need to uninstall Picasa before upgrading.  Your pictures are stored on your computer’s hard drive separately from Picasa.  Picasa is just software that works with the pictures it finds on your computer.  

Here’s a video specifically on updating Picasa:

Please also watch the 8 video series on organizing

The more you understand about how Picasa works, the easier it will be to manage your pictures.
