Picasa is a great free program for organizing and editing your photos.The addition of sharing photos to Google+ and tagging Google+ friends is a great way to connect memories with others.

While Picasa may not be a comprehensive editing suite when compared to paid software like Adobe Photoshop, it contains more than enough options to edit and create collages and presentations.

Picasa doesn't have a dedicated delete button, so how do you delete images?

It's easier than you think!

Single images

Deleting a single image is simple. Right click on the mouse on the image you want to delete. Find the Delete from Disk option and you can delete the image. Deleting the image will remove it from Picasa and any albums the picture is a part of. It will also remove the image from your computer.

Multiple images

To select multiple images, hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard. Clicking on the images will create a queue of files. When you are done selecting, follow the same directions above.

Delete folders

Simple, isn't it?

Deleting images in Picasa is simple to do, once you find the right menu. If you accidentally delete an image that you didn't want to, the removed images are still in the Recycle Bin. But if you empty the Recycle Bin, you will lose all your images, so be careful!

    How do I delete a collage? If I click on the "remove from disk" option will it delete all the photos? I only want to delete the collage.

    Why must a delete of a picture from Picasa cause it to be deleted from every file in the computer? What do I have to do to retain the picture in the non-Picasa files, in this case?
