using Web Albums with my I pad

Given that I have had a cognitive stroke in 2009, I have been struggling with picasa for almost 4 years. I am now 77. I really enjoy using Picasa but my stroke makes it difficult to figure out  how to use picasa these days.  My son bought me a ipad mini for a christmas gift. I go to a Apple Store twice a week early in the morning(before the store opens up. I finally was able to convince them the most comfortable way for me to be taught was to meet with the same person.  I go to the store  at 8 am so he can teach me for about 40 min. At the end of the sessiion he writie down his directions such as learning how to make albums on my ipad, he then sends me his notes, so I can review them over the coming week.

I found a Apple app and installed  on my ipad. Here is what happened: I installed the app (Web Albums). within a few min. all the albums I put on my i pad dissappeard. some of my albums and collages then appeared on my i pad from my desktop HP Piscasa
I am very sad that the albums I put on my i pad over the last couple of months, i do not see any more.
how can I find my albums and return them to my ipad?

I wish I could see your iPad.  Without knowing exactly how you had already put ‘albums on your iPad’ I don’t know why they would have disappeared.

How had you been looking at them?  Using the Photos app?  That’s the icon with the yellow sunflower on it.  Tap that and notice that there are tabs along the top.  One of them is Albums … when you tap that do you see any photos?  Another tab – all the way at the left – is just Photos.  If you tap that, do you see anything?

Picasa Web Albums is showing you something that is on the web … not on your iPad.  

When I go to the App store on the iPad and search for Picasa or Web Albums, I see lots of options and none of them are by Google.  So, I don’t know what you installed.  The actual Picasa software – like we teach in our videos – is not available on the iPad … or any mobile device. 

does any of this help?

I commend you for taking lessons at the Apple store … a twice-a-week lesson sounds great!  What does he say about your lost albums?
