|I've an idea what be happening. Remember that picture files are NOT held in Picasa, or any such program. You only see reflections, links, to where the actual files are located (as often as not in "Pictures"). It is however true that Picasa and similar programs are capable of deleting the real files too. |
Let's first have a quick run through Picasa procedures:
or this more informative video:
One advantage of using Picasa for albums, rather than juggling folders and files in Windows, is that you can have a particular picture in more than one album without file duplication. It sounds like you are somehow deleting the source file. See this, particularly "Step 1":
You could of-course just keep both Picasa picture links in place - there's still only one set of "files".
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
