I surprised nobody has answered this yet. I a am a newbie, but will take a stab at it.

I am not that familiar with Picasa but I assume you can use it to change the size of your photo so it is suitable with Trekearth (<800pix wide, <300K.) If your photo is too large in file size or in pixel size you will get an error when uploading. If you go through the steps in Picasa of emailing a photo except you save it to file, it should turn out to be within these parameters. Let me know if you need more help with that. So using Picasa (or another program) get your re-sized photo into a folder that is easy to find and perhaps rename it to something the makes sense (e.g. trek-beach1.jpg)

Once you have your re-sized photo:
- Log in
- Click on your user name on the upper right (next to Language) to open your profile if it is not already open.
- Click on the "Photos" tab
- If you are logged in you should see a "Upload Photo" link in the upper left - click that.
- You should be on the Uploads page where it says "Browse" and "Country"
- Use the pull-down list for country (click the arrow to the right of County) to select where the photo was taken.
- Click "Browse" and using the pop-up menu navigate to your re-sized photo, select it (click on the file icon) and click "Open" - the path to your photo is added.
- Click "Upload"
- You should get the "Upload" page where you fill in Title, etc.
- Fill in your photo Title, Description (minimum of 40 characters), set the other parameters on this page. - Click "Update"
- You should be on the "Manage" page and you are done. If you click on the photo you will see the whole photo page ..... then you can add it to a Theme, etc.

Note that if you do not fill in the Title and Description and set the other parameters you will get an error. The Description must be at least 40 characters ( I personally think this is a great rule.)

Let me know, hope this helps, ............. Dave
