Hide and unhide photos

Hidden pictures are files that you've chosen to hide from view in the Picasa Library. This doesn't affect the ability to view the photos on your hard drive. Below you'll find instructions on how to hide and unhide photos in Picasa:

Hide pictures

  1. Select the photos that you'd like to hide.
  2. Click the Pictures menu.
  3. Select Hide.

You can also right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) any of the selected photos in the Library and select Hide.

Unhide pictures

  1. Click the View menu.
  2. Select Hidden Pictures. Your hidden pictures will now appear, but they will be translucent.
  3. Select the photos that you'd like to unhide.
  4. Click the View menu.
  5. Select Unhide.

You can also right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) any of the selected photos and select Unhide in the menu. The selected photos will now be displayed again in your normal Library view.

You can only select to hide or unhide pictures in one folder or album at a time.
