But if you look at the bottom of the Picasa screen you need to hit the upload button to get your images into the picasa window but why not just import via File, Import from? and then they will work. I guarantee Picasa will do what i said it will do. If yo can see the image in Picasa it will work! Just upload one of your images here and i will try it!

Dwarf,

I could, but I really want to learn how to do this myself, because it is something that I will need to be able to do often. Thanks.

EDIT: Even with this problem aside, Picasa kind of bugs me, because it seems to be continously scanning my computer, even after it has already done so once, and it keep the CPU running at ~ half throttle all the time. Is there another photo editor available with better manners?

I don't know of another free one that will edit the fonts as you want. If you are prepared to pay then Adobe Elements is a good one.Try the earlier versions that are still sometimes available. Sorry that you don't like Picasa as I have found it highly successful in starting people off with photo editing in the past. With a little perceverence I am sure you find it very easy to use. I don't know about it's manners though , not a subject I am familiar with

I suspect that the reason that you aren't aware of any of it's hoggish manners is because you probably have faster hardware than I do. My old Socket 939 groans a bit running it. I may experiment further with it, because this is something that I'm not inclined to pay for a special program to do, but at the moment, I'm doing some encoding and that takes almost all of the processor's time to do.

I understand. Dimensions of original are 12.96 x 18.31 cm (490 x 692 px). What are the dimensions of the thumbnail you require?

I don't know what the ideal size is, because the program that they will be used in resizes them to it's own need. However, the one for Sea Hunt that I used yesterday is 585x828x24BPP. I don't have any idea of what that BPP factor stands for though.

Here you go. Firstly, the original full size without lettering, then lettered and then reduced to 10% of original size.

Thanks, but I think that you misunderstood. I got Sea Hunt numbered and working yesterday. What I need now is a means to add custom outlined numbers on others.

I have been trying to get the import to work...without any success. I did get the red and white crossed circle to disappear, by using the include option in the right click context menu, but Picasa still couldn't find them. I then did what you suggested and used the import function, but that seemed to simply export them to some folder somewhere that I haven't found yet.

I'm sure that if someone other than myself, that knew what they were doing, wouldn't have any trouble with this, but then I can only be myself.

Happy to go through the Picasa interface step by step if you wish. If you would post a screenshot of the first view that appears when you first open Picasa we could take it from there!
