Organizing, Cropping, and Re-sizing Photos for Your Website Using Picassa

This entry is part 7 of 9 in the series 2) 10 to Design

This video will help you learn to organize, group, crop, and make minor edits to photos before you load your images to your website.

Why this matters

As you begin to accumulate information for your website, keeping all of the images organized can get complicated. So, we use Picassa to help us create albums for different projects. Also, Picassa’s preview function is fast, automatic, and easy to use.

Maybe one of my most important uses of Picassa is the the crop and the resize function. Since most of photos which I put on my website are a maximum of 300 pixels wide or high, it is nice to use Picassa’s quick resize function to take a full-size image from a camera, crop it to the important region of the photo, and then save and resize that image to be just the right size for my website.

Picassa saves me hours of time.
