mac tripping

mis.addn/mac.picasa/forgot how picasa works!:
. I'm (wrongly) assuming picasa can't read crypts,
so I'm pulling a copy of log into open space
for importing into picasa .
. after having no luck importing anything,
I did some rtfm, and found what I'd forgotten:
there is a folder mgt that lets you exclude picasa's search,
and I had excluded everything except the one place
where the log had once been
before I moved the entire log to a crypt .
of course, I forgot!:
. you just need to go into Tools / Folder Manager
and check the [Scan Always] on any folders you want imported .
