Under "Image size Options" enter the size you'd like for the resized pictures. Here are some suggestions for the new image sizes:
Under "Image Quality" it is best to use the Automatic setting, but if you find the exported pictures are not small enough for your purposes, you may need to redo the export choosing the Normal or Minimum setting.
If you had any movie files in your selection, the movie options will be available. Choosing "First Frame" will export a still image from the first frame of the movie file, so recipients will not get a video and the file will be very small. Choosing "Full Movie" will not resize the movie files and those files will remain very large.
Click OK to proceed with the export. Picasa will show you a status bar in the bottom right corner of the screen, and then will open your computer's file browser to the location where the new folder was created in order for you to work with the files.
