Chris demonstrates how drop-dead easy it is to create collages using Google Photos on your phone or on the computer. If you want more options, she also demonstrates how you can download the picture to your computer and use Picasa.
We’ve discussed a Geeks on Tour presentation for her computer group sometime in the Fall, but when she heard we’d be traveling thru her area in May, Catherine arranged for a small group presentation this week. Over the years, Catherine has recommended Geeks on Tour membership to many people – so we are happy to return the favor and present a free seminar for her group. We loved that she came up with a specific topic: Making a Banner Picture with Picasa. It will be a pleasure to teach one topic rather than the overview seminars we usually do. Check out the flyer for the event below.
This meeting is just for the Sun City group. If you would like us to present at your group, contact us. If we’re in your area, we’ll try to put it on our schedule. If not, we may be able to arrange a remote seminar with Skype.
Connect your camera to the computer by whatever method is provided with your camera – usually a USB cable, maybe a card reader. A popup menu with options should appear, and you can select ‘Copy pictures and view them using Picasa3.’ The Picasa Import screen has several options – this video will explain them and show you how to use it:
The Collage feature in Picasa 3 allows you to put multiple pictures together on one page. The following video shows you the basics of selecting the photos, arranging them on a page and saving your collage. After watching this simple intro, be sure to watch the Collage Short Course which goes into depth on all the options.
