I recently took some pictures with my Droid and attempted to rename the picture. After renaming, the picture “went away”, in other words, I couldn’t find it again with the name on it. The basic picture was on the other devices, i.e., laptop and PC, but not named.
I also took many picture this week at the Oshkosh Air Venture and attempted to create an “Air Show” album. The Album then showed and indicated I could “drag & drop” the pictures into the album – but it wasn’t accepting the pictures.
Sorry for putting two topics into one query. Can you help with both situations?
I’m really not sure what happened to your renamed picture, I don’t see why it would ‘go away’. Are you looking for it using Picasa? or just Windows? or are you doing everything in Dropbox? I use the dropbox Camera Uploads folder just as a means of transfer. My pictures are taken using the smartphone, they show up in Dropbox Camera Uploads folder. I cut them from there and paste into my Pictures. From now on, I use Picasa to work with them and Upload them to Picasa Web albums if I want to share. Maybe you’re using the Dropbox website to do your sharing?
When you say “It indicated that I could drag and drop” … that’s not a message that comes up in Picasa, so I think you are using the Dropbox website … I just tried that and it did, indeed let me drag and drop additional pictures into a shared album. Do you get any other message?
