Change the Thumbnail Size Via the Slider or Keyboard Shortcuts

SUMMARY: A beginner's tip for Picasa - how to resize thumbnails in the Library View via the slider or keyboard shortcuts.

This is a simple tip for Picasa, unless you haven't found out how to do it yet...

There are a couple of ways to change the size of photo thumbnails displayed when in the library view. Near the bottom-right of Picasa you should see a thumb slider. Click and hold the left mouse button while on the slider thumb, then drag it to the left to make thumbnails smaller; release the mouse button when you are finished resizing the thumbnails. Or, drag it to the right to make thumbnails bigger.

You can make thumbnails in Picasa really large...

You can also use these keyboard shortcuts (or select the options from the "View" menu):

Ctrl + 1: Small Thumbnails
Ctrl + 2: Normal Thumbnails

This tip was written regarding Picasa 3.1.0 running on a Windows Vista machine. Features, information, and screenshots for other versions / operating systems may vary.
