You may know that you can sort your pictures by date using Picasa’s Sort Order tools, but did you know that you can find pictures with a certain date? Let’s say you wanted to see what pictures you took on Christmas Day last year. Just search for 2013:12:25 and make sure to include the colons.
Behind the scenes, Picasa is indexing the picture dates in the format yyyy:mm:dd. So, if you make sure to use that same format in your search, you can search for pictures in any given year, month, or day.
