Elsa, thanks for the tip -- I know others have recommended Picasa the
last few days and I finally got around to downloading it a few minutes
ago. It appears to be pretty neat, just as you have said! I've used a
few other programs but may change over to this one after playing with it
for a while. And you're right, it certainly does grab your photos and
catalog them nicely, and very quickly too!
