I shoot using my DSLR with RAW+JPG setting, which means all my pictures are duplicated into Picasa. I usually import everything and then move all the .CR2 files into a subfolder called RAW.

How can I prevent these file from being displayed into Picasa?


Try Tools > Folder Manager. Select the folder you want to exclude, and click 'Remove from Picasa'.


I'm not sure about Windows, but prefixing the folder name with . did the trick for me: the filesystem (and possibly Picasa) handle this as a hidden folder, and it will not be displayed or scanned in Picasa, even if it's in a subfolder of a watched folder.

For example, the naming the folder .RAW hide the .CR2 files from Picasa.
