I am new to this forum and have spent some time discovering that Picassa is probably the best but not perfect software to use for an event.
I am about to do my third event using picassa but I have a problem with picassa refreshing itself.
I create a folder on my desktop for the event. All files are downloaded into this folder. First download no problem, picassa finds it. All other downloads into same folder do not appear on picassa unless I switch it off and on again. Any help would be much appreciated. I use a mac and hire a hiti 510s from System Insite.
All the best Colin.

Hi Colin,

Welcome to the mad-house!

I've not used Picassa for 8 years or more, I use Expressdigital Darkroom, take a look www.expressdigital.com (http://www.expressdigital.com) but your problem sounds like a bad install, I'd uninstall the software and do a clean install from another download.

Hope that helps.

Your folder on desktop needs to be the watched folder and then in the options you need to select the option that constantly refreshes itself not just the once. If I get home at a decent hour il do a screen grab

h i
select tools
folder manager
highlight required folder
check 'always update (blue circle arrow)
this will then update every time photos are sent to the folder
hope that helps
