Ok, Its true that Picasa only touches ur pictures and save the settings as .ini files, bt there is a way to actally use Picasa as an image editor. First just go along the usual way of tweaking your pictures, when you are done, start the slide show and click so that the toolbar disappears and press "<-" button on ur k'board, not over yet! immediately press the Print Screen Button. then open Paint, click on the Select button, right click in the blank space and choose Paste. Hooray! I know its (a bit) tedious, but editing images is so easy in Picasa! Any suggestions?
