Dejan: Thank you. That's the easiest way!  I uninstalled the version
of Picasa for Linux I'd gotten from the google yum repository,
installed wine and then I downloaded the M$ Windows version (3.8) of
Google's Picasa and installed that with Wine.

Working!   :-)  Strangely, in the Help > About  it shows that it is
Picasa version 3.8.x for Linux.    :-)

Thanks to the 3 of you who replied.  Much appreciated! Lanny
