Iam ready with another post which is very easy and familiar to all bloggers..But,still there are some people who don`t know and how to do the work in picasa...Those people may feel happy and try this step wise pictures which are useful to you..Don`t laugh on my grammar knowledge.I know,that Iam worst in english,But still I dare to write something help ful which I know..:)

How to makeup/edit pictures..



INTRO OF PICASA:

Picasa is an Image viewer for organising and editing the all kind of pictures..It was created by a company called  "life Space" in 2002 then owned by google in 2004.The latest version of Picasa is 3.9 and it supported by WINDOWS VISTA,WINDOWS XP AND WINDOWS 7..

Plus points of PICASA is it  does n`t changes the original images location and don`t do any changes in picture in anyway..

HERE IS THE LINK TO DOWNLOAD PICASA AND YOU NEED GOOGLE ACCOUNT FOR THIS TOO..

1.After completing the download it asks  Do you want run this file.. Click on yes..
2.“Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer” click
“Yes”
3. “License Agreement” if you agree Click “I agree”
4. “Choose an install location” Click “Install” DO NOT CHANGE THIS LOCATION
5. Picasa will now finish installing to your computer. This will take a few moments to
complete, so wait!

Then By following the directions create a folder of picasa on your desktop..

Once you create picasa will copy  the pictures whatever you have on desktop,whether images or videos or songs..If you have lot of pictures it may take some time,so,be with patience.

**For an Important pictures you can create a 2nd folder then copy the edited pictures if you want..For the Important pictures you can give a star and later you can find them easily in search..You can import the pictures from downloads or any other locations.You can name the person of each and later you can find in search very easily...Also,you can export the  pictures..**

EDITING THE PICTURE

The options you have are,

1.basic fixes
2.colour fixes and lightening
3.tuning
effects,undo/redo
saving pictures
rotate/zoom

Whenever you upload a folder on desktop with images automatically picasa will copy those pics.

So,just open picasa and double click on picture which you want edit.







on the left side you can see options and tight window side the picture will appear..that is

A.BASIC FIXES..

Now,under basics you have options like crop,red eye,contrast,retouch and text..



you can resize the letters and you can select different fonts..also you have several colours too.


see..I wrote Mahadhip with green filling and black border

If your pics are dull then use this option "fill light".on below,you have other option "undo fill light also"



B.TUNING

This is the Important option which really help for food bloggers..


You can fill light,by clicking on shadow you can give a dark look too.Well,highlights options gives more bright look to picture..


C. EFFECTS(more fun and useful image processing)

If you love photography then this option is for you..You can choose various options here..

Example One..


**Most of the food bloggers use black and white that is B&W and focal B&W**


looks like this..




By selecting the size and sharpness you can design the pic


See,I pointed only face.remaining looking in black n white shade..


Another Important one for bloggers is polaroid..It looks like photo..


like this


the next continuing 2 options also same like this one..In that most useful one is Border..ou can select two border colours for pics..in the intro of the recipe you can use this border pics for rich look.


you have multiple colour options.


You can choose the different kind of effects for pictures and it`s like fun...I go vth the option POLAROIDE mostly (IN THE LAST YOU CAN YOU FIND)



IF YOU DON`T LIKE CHANGES WHATEVER YOU DID THEN YOU CAN CLICK ON UNDO TO GET BACK THE ORIGINAL PIC.YOU CAN SEE THIS OPTION ON EACH CATEGORY..

IMP: always a create another empty folder to upload your pictures and copying your stuffs in pen drive is a very good idea...Give names to each folder for easy search instead using the common name "new folder"

While exporting your picture into folder you can see this box with few options.There you can write a name of your choice and  select the image quality which you want......





THE OTHER PLUS POINT OF PICASA IS FORMING COLLAGES.

IT IS MUCH MORE USEFUL ONE FOR FOOD BLOGGERS WHEN YOU HAVE STEP WISE PICTURES..CLICK ON THE DESIRED FOLDER AND AGAIN CLICK ON "CREATE PHOTO COLLAGE" AND START ..


For food bloggers grid and contact sheet are very helpful..again in those you have a option like grid spacing..


Use this drop down arrow to form the pics in different kind angles (grid mosaic,picture pile,frame mosaic etc..




By clicking on page format you can change the width of images,also you can drag the pictures(or clcik on shuffle) to change their places..


Finally you have four options in the bottom..If you like collage click on create collage otherwise reset or else close...

That`s it for Today...Really Hope you all enjoyed my post..Iam sure After this clear and easy instructions you can do it with ease..Just go on according to the directions and create your pics..Enjoy and have fun...
