I guess the serious posters here don't use Picasa, but thought it might 
interest some lurkers or future searchers.

I use Picasa as a cheap and cheerful filing system that provides simple 
basic editing (mostly I only need cropping and straightening).

I also write technical reports containing photographs of broken bits of 
industrial plant, using Word. To keep the final file size down I tend to 
use the Picasa "export" function to downsize the images to 1024 pixels. 
(I know I could downsize further without affecting the printed report, 
but this lets people pull reasonable images out of the Word file later 
if they want to).

My reports look fine on screen (including print preview) and print 
perfectly on a mono Laserjet and a Brother inkjet. But I use a Lexmark 
(CS410dn) if I want hard copies. And these exported JPEGs, when inserted 
into Word, don't then print correctly on the Lexmark, they print in the 
correct sized frame on the paper but the image part is enlarged, showing 
only the top left hand corner of the image, and cropping the rest.

After much trial and error, I've found it is the Picasa Export which 
causes the problem. If you open and then save the JPEG in Paint 
(overwriting the original file) the problem goes away.

(I just had to tell someone).
