Using Picasa Web Albums

This session will focus on the use of Picasa web albums to create slideshows that can be easily added to Google Sites and Blogger blogs. Participants can use photos from their computers or take photos during the session. We can upload to their Picasa Web Album, look at the properties and options for an album and then post it online. This process of going from still photos to slideshows is very popular with our classroom teachers and families.
