how do I move multiple folders to a new collection? or do I need to do it one at a time?
Did you figure this out? If you haven't I will post directions of what I would do!
i haven't figured it out yet.
Okay, first, background information that you probably already know:
When Picasa was set up on your computer it was designated to automatically update any new picture files that it recognized from a specific location (either your hard drive, external hard drive, memory device, or all of the above).
If no automatic updates were selected, you also have the option manually import pictures by clicking on the IMPORT button in the top left hand corner and then selecting the file location.
The bottom line is, Picasa is pulling the pictures from your hardware. If you erase/move/delete the pictures from this designated source, they will also be moved in Picasa.
Now to your question, how to move folders to a new collection:
****Just a note -- exporting them to another folder doesn't erase them from the folder they are already in ... it just copies them to another folder. If you only want them in one folder in Picasa, you will have to delete them from their original location.****
I hope that all made sense and I hope what I typed was right. Somebody else may have an easier way to do this.
Thank you!! that helped a lot.
