I meant to do a lovely Easter recap but instead ended up taking our computer in once again (I think this is the 4th time in 2 weeks) to have them show me where the put all the recovery files when a nasty virus took hold and needed to be abolished.
I found out that I lost all my photos since Halloween, and would have lost another year had I not backed them up before that date. And because they had to remove all my programs the worst thing that happened is that I found I can now no longer download Picasa because some smarty computer person decided it would be a good idea to get rid of it and put in it's place a super basic, super lame Google Photos which offers none of the scrap booking features I used for years and years and knew by heart and took me a long time to learn. I had SUCH a good quick system going with uploading my pics to the blog, or making collages and now I am frustrated because I do not want to take the time to relearn something again. I want EASY. I want to spend about 10 minutes on this thing once a week. I want to make scrapbook pages in a flash.
So what to do now? Besides smash my computer with a hammer and say forget the whole thing. And get a Mac which I might just ask Santa to bring me in 8 months. Can anyone suggest anything else to use in place of Picasa? It must have collage features, and I have to be able to use text (not just tags or captions but write ON the photos.) And I would love to not have to upload my photos every time I want to use it-they would just be there when I uploaded them into the computer. And it would be free. If anyone has any good suggestions I would love it. Thank you!
THANK YOU ALISA! I used this site to reinstall and it worked perfectly with no extra junk attached.
