If you've read this far, you're familiar with the basics of Picasa. As you become a power user, here are some of the features for you to explore:

Resize photos: One of the most popular -- and most hidden -- features of Picasa is the ability to resize photos. Use the Export button to quickly resize your photos.
Make a collage: Make a collage and share it with your friends and family. Experiment with six different types of collage, and maintain total control over your collage content and layout. To add this button to your photo tray, click Tools > Configure Buttons.
Use Movie Maker: Combine your photos, videos, and music into a movie and upload it directly to YouTube. You can also trim existing video files. To add this button to your photo tray, click Tools > Configure Buttons.
Upload to Blogger: Use the BlogThis! button to post photos directly from Picasa to Blogger. To add this button to your photo tray, click Tools > Configure Buttons.
Print photos: Use the Print button to print your photos at home.
Add tags: Tags are like keywords. By applying single or multiple-word tags in Picasa, you can quickly search and locate photos. The Tags tab offers quick tags, tag counts and the ability to manage your tags.
Map photos: Use the Maps tab in Picasa to embed latitude and longitude information into the EXIF data of your photo file. This geographic data accompanies your photo when you upload it to Picasa Web Albums.
Sync to Web: When you enable Sync to Web in Picasa for a folder or album, edits made to your photos in Picasa are reflected immediately in the corresponding album in Picasa Web Albums.
Add captions: Adding captions can help tell the rest of the story. While editing a photo, click the text below that says 'Make a caption!'. Captions are displayed in Picasa, Picasa Web Albums, and other IPTC compatible programs.
Back up your collection: Protect those precious memories. Use Picasa to back up your photos to an alternate drive or back up your photos to a CD or DVD.
