You can use Picasa to import photos from a camera, a minicard, a CD or any other device that might contains photos. A little bonus : Picasa automatically look if you already have the same pictures to prevent duplicates.
- Plug in your camera or insert mini card or CD that contains the photos.
- Click on Import, in the top left corner. If photos don't appear, select a device from the list on the top near Import from. If some photos have a red X, it's that they're already in your folders and won't be imported again.
- Type the name you want for the folder of these photos at the bottom of the window under Folder title (you'll be able to organize this more later)
- Click on Import All .
