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. Use the following tips to efficiently select multiple photos:

  • Press the Ctrl key (Windows) or the Command key (Mac) on your keyboard while clicking photos to select multiple photos from the same folder or album. As you select each photo, it'll appear in the Photo Tray. To select all photos in a folder or album, click Edit > Select all or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-A (Windows) or Command-A (Mac).
  • Use the Hold button hold button to secure your selected photos in the Photo Tray. After you've clicked the Hold button, you can then select photos from other folders or albums.
  • Use the Clear button  clear 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 and click the Clear button. This will remove the selected photo from the group.
