Emailing movies

By default, Picasa only sends the image of the first frame of all movie files. To email an entire movie file using Picasa, follow these steps to adjust your settings:

  1. In Picasa, click Tools > Options (Windows) or Picasa > Preferences (Mac).
  2. Select the Email tab.
  3. Under 'Send movies as:', select the 'Full Movie' option.
  4. Click the OK button.
Even small movies can be very large movie files. Gmail limits each message to a maximum of 20 MB.
