I think I’ve discovered a bug in the Picasa 3 beta. I was working with some photos that I wanted to import only temporarily so I named the folder to be created ‘temp’. The photos never showed up. They existed on the hard drive but never appeared in the Picasa library. I imported them a couple more times, naming them temp 2 and temp 3. These showed up normally. When I renamed the original ‘temp’ folder, it immediately was found by Picasa and then scanned. I can’t find a reference to this anywhere.
“Undocumented feature”, or bug?
