One of the many Google Apps that is available to ASEM members is Picasa Web Album. Picasa is a combination of a desktop client to manage picture organization and a web page for sharing that provides 1 GB of online storage. You can access both parts at http://picasaweb.google.com. If asked to log in, use your ASEM email address and password (contact Steve if you are unsure about these). The slide shows on our pages come from pictures stored at Picasa. I'll point out that you can also use the Picasa storage for personal pictures that can be shared with family and friends.
To make the process easier for volunteers, I've created a new member with an email address ASEMPictures@asemonline.org. You will need to be added to the "share" list & will be required to log on with ASEM username/password before you can access the Contribute links below:
DigitalSIG Members Images :
ASEM General Meeting Pictures
ASEM Public Outreach Pictures
Pictures added to these folders will be automatically
included in the correct slide show on ASEM's main page. Currently only the DigitalSIG slide show is active. There are too few pictures in the other albums to use. This will be corrected.
There are two ways to get any pictures you take into the correct album. If you are an ASEM member let me know and I'll share the needed albums with you. The sharing is a one time process that takes about five minutes on my end. Once completed, Google will send email telling you that an album has been shared and a link to open. At that point you'll also have access via the links above. Open the link and log in with your ASEM email address and password. At you'll need to do is drag and drop the pictures from your computer to the browser window and the rest is automatic. It is really easy! Let me know you are interested in contributing and I'll get you added.
