Selecting multiple photos

The Photo Tray located in the lower-left corner of Picasa displays the photos that you've selected in the Library view. By gathering photos in the Photo Tray, you can easily apply one action, such as email or upload, to multiple photos at the same time.

Select multiple photos

  • Press and hold the Ctrl key (or the Command key on your Mac) while clicking photos to select multiple photos from the same folder or album. To select all photos in a folder or album, click the Edit menu and choose Select all or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+A (or Command+A on your Mac).
  • Holding photos allows you to select photos across multiple folders or albums. After selecting photos, use the Hold hold button button to secure your selected photos in the Photo Tray.
  • Use the Clear clear button button to remove all photos from the Photo Tray. If you change your mind about including a particular photo, select the photo in the Photo Tray then click the Clear clear button button.
