I'm not sure what a screenshot is for, unless you don't have Picasa install, but here it is anyway:

I certainly have Picasa installed otherwise I would only be guessing the help I am trying to give and that would be wasting my time and yours.I needed to see your Picasa window so that I would be able to help you from that point. I see now that you can select one of your images. If you do that and follow the instructions I put in post #18 then you will easily achieve something like this;

Which I have just done. A point to remember, If you find you can't import PNG files to Picasa Click on Tools then Options then click the File Type tag and click the PNG box. Then click OK.
When you are happy with the result you can either save the file as is or click the Export icon at the bottom of the screen where you can resize the image if you wish.
If you want to stop the program from scanning your system then this can be done by clicking Tools then File Manager. There you can delete folders from the Picasa library, scan a folder just once or continuously scan. The choice is yours.

You misunderstand. I already understand how to deal with an image that it found on it's own...like those in the screenshot, but not for those that I had to manually direct Picasa to. As I said, they originally had a red and white crossed circle on them, but I got rid of that. Even after that, when I attempted to select one of the images, it didn't open the editting window, so that it could be numbered. It is as even though that Picasa displays them, they are not actually included with the rest of the images. That is what the question is about.

OK lets have another go:
With Picasa open click Tools then Folder Manager. Then in the windows that opens navigate to the folder where the images that you want to open are. What has it got against it a red cross, green tick or blue circle? Click on the Green cross (scan once) radio button. Click OK. You will see the images in the right hand pane. Double click on the one you want and it will open with the Basic Fixes, Tuning and Effects tags on the left. With the Basic Fixes tag clicked then that will show the Text icon click that and then follow the previous instructions in Post #18

Still no joy. I tried it by both selecting the green check, and by using blue circular arrow, using the latter, nothing happened when I select OK, but with the green check, it did start scanning...according to CPU activity. But when searching the images window, I couldn't find anything for Stargate SG-1, nor when I used the program's search window either. Since there are 10 seasons to that program, and for the fact that Picasa seems to display at least two of each image, it should have been easy finding them. I'm not positive, but I think that I used the Import selection on the File menu before, when they did appear...until I tried using the import again, and instead of importing, it exported the thumbs to the picture library.

As time goes by, I'm not growing any fonder of this program. I really dislike the scroll bar on the image window, because that instead of remaining at a position relative to where it is within the collection, it returns back to center when you release it. All that it really does is to control the speed at which the images scroll.

What file extension are the images you are having trouble with and could you upload one to here and I will try it?

Excuse me Sir, but the one you uploaded earlier, and the one I did for you were PNG... (post 5 & 8 I saved as jpg)

Ditch Picasa if your not happy with it - it won't be a pleasure to do the work otherwise. You could try Zoner Photo Studio (which I used earlier for you). It's simple but feature packed...

I'll do better than that. If these are not enough, I got five more of the same series.
