4. Right click on the picture and select the tab ‘open with’ and you will get a drop down for you to select. Then click on view with Picassa viewer.

5.  Your picture will open in a new file and you have the Picassa editor tools

6. There are two options to use the edit button. Go to the edit button on the tool tabs or right click on the picture and edit through Picassa  edit . Now you will have a new page of Picasa and all its tools in the left panel of the picture

7. You have a various menus for you to use
1. Basic Fixes
2. Tuning
3. Effects.
I normally use the Basic Fixes to create the water mark. You can try all other features to fine tune your pictures according to your requirements

8. Create a watermark
a. Select the ABC text button
b. You will get a check box – “Type anywhere to add a text
Now add your choice of words or your blog details or your name.

8 After all required changes have been done then go to file menu and click on “SAVE AS” and give a new name to your picture. This is very important because your original picture will remain in tact.
