  1. In question 6 you said that when you delete a picture it is deleted from the computer. I though you were given an option to delete from picasa or delete from disk.

  2. Well I learned something–making a new folder with picasa with right click. I didn’t see a way to designate where the new folder would appear, though. Can you only do that from Windows Explorer?

    Also, here’s one for your next quiz–Can you delete an empty folder using Picasa? Answer: No, if you move all the photos out of the folder, the empty folder disappears from Picasa but is still on your computer. You have to delete it from Windows Explorer.

    Thanks so much for all your Picasa tips!

  3. I’m embarrassed!!!’

  4. Hey Chris–
    This little quiz was a great idea. Made me feel good that I knew the answers. #8 though could have two answers as we should theoretically backup our photos daily when we use our cameras a lot. Thanks again for all you do. Your videos and training sessions are great. When will you be headed our way to Arizona??!!!

  5. Please view the forum post at Picasa Quiz for links to the tutorial videos that explain the concepts behind each question.

  6. I never knew what folder manager could do for me. I thought if I clicked on remove from Picasa that I would also delete from my computer. Can’t wait to get my Picasa all organized. Thanks.

  7. No. 4 was a trick question. 😉
