Where are my edited photos

Once I have edited my photos in Picasa where are the new ones stored on my computer.  I did a whole lot of editing and now I can’t find them.

The new ones are not stored as files on your computer unless you do a file Save – then they are in the picture’s original location.

Picasa simply remembers all your edits (using the picasa.ini overlay file) and applies the edits to the original whenever you are using Picasa to view them.

Please watch this video:

and this one

and maybe this one too :-)
