Picasa won't scan new photos

Recommended Posts



Google's Picasa photo enhancer has a "Fill Light" tool that I really love. But lately Picasa won't scan my new photos. Is anyone aware of another free photo enhancer that has a similar Fill Light tool?

There is a wonderful graphics prog. called GIMP.

It will do almost anything you can envisage (other than making cups of coffee).

It is a standard ingredient in Linux and I believe it is downloadable for other systems.

Thanks for the info Bonzai Soup, I will download Gimp.


BTW, when I took a closer look at the previous files that Picasa did scan I noticed that they were all jpeg. And when I looked at the files that Picasa would not scan, they were all png. So I converted the png files to jpeg and guess what? Now Picasa scans all of my files.
