How to add photos and videos to Picasa from a camera, CD/DVD, or memory card?
Last Updated :
To add photos and videos to Picasa from a camera, CD/DVD, or memory card:
Connect the device (camera, memory card, CD/DVD, scanner, etc.) to your computer.
In Picasa, click the Import button.
'Import from': Select the source of your new photos (e.g. your camera). Your photos will show up divided into groups based on the time in which they were taken.
'Import to': Decide where you'd like to save the photos on your computer. If you choose 'date taken' as the folder title, your photos will be saved in separate folders by date.
If you're importing from a camera or memory card, you'll have the following options in the 'After copying' section: a. Leave card alone: Nothing is deleted from your camera and memory card. b. Delete only copied photos: Only pictures that are imported will be deleted. c. Delete everything on card: All pictures that are found on your camera or memory card will be deleted.
Select the specific photos you'd like to import. There are several ways to select multiple photos: a. Rubber band select: Just click and drag your mouse over multiple photos to select them. b. Hold the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac) as you select multiple photos. c. Click the clock icon Picasa select photos by time to select all photos taken during a specific time period.
Click Import Selected or click Import All to import all the photos displayed.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug!
Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.
I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
I have thousands of family photos and it's always been such a pain to upload them to various cloud services for offline storage. Well not anymore! PicBackMan makes backing everything up a complete breeze. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
I was poking around the Internet looking for an easy tool to help me consolidate 15 years of my pictures from Google Photos and Flickr etc - this tool was very easy to use and was painless to setup.
