You have a Digital Camera … Now What?

Aren’t digital cameras wonderful? You never have to worry about running out of film (just battery :-) )You never have to wonder, “Is that picture going to come out?” because you can look at the preview. And, you don’t have to pay for processing. But you *do* have to learn a little about what to do with the photos after you take them.

In our 5 years on the road, we have taken nearly 20,000 pictures! Being a computer professional, I was undaunted by the tasks of managing those digital photos. I knew how to organize them into folders, I knew how to use Fireworks (like Photoshop) to crop, resize, and make them look better, I knew how to make websites to share them and backup software to keep them safe. Each day, after taking dozens of photos, I would spend 30 – 60 minutes preparing the photos and putting them on my blog.

Then I discovered Picasa and life with photos got a whole lot easier. What used to take me an hour and 3 or 4 different programs, now takes me 5-10 minutes and all I need is Picasa. View the video below for more information. And, if you’d like a Picasa tip emailed to you every week:
