Garnelen, this technique is called selective zoom!

It is in Picnic section of Picasa!

Unfortunately the picnic is available only to April 2012, but all features are now free for everyone to use!!!


Marlene, the Teddy Bear story was news for me too,

real bears even bigger news, but there are quite a few large wild life cnoservation areas near the Mississipi river.
