Google Picasa privacy

I've just read the very good free ebook on security producted by PC Advisor click here

This pointed out that Google Picasa images are made public by default and I'm fairly certain I never clicked on any 'keep private' box when importing!

So a few question. How can I check if my photo's are public or otherwise? If they are public can I change them back to 'private'? Is it possible to delete individual photo's from Picasa? Does simply using Picasa to download images from my camera to my computer cause them to be uploaded to the web as public?

I think you might be slightly and understandably confused. See:

Stuarti - the PC Advisor ebook caused the start of my confusion. After reading the Google bit I felt I needed more information so I could decide if I was 'secure' in relation to Picasa. I read the link (which wouldn't work from the page but copying it to my browsers address bar was OK). I'm not sure it helps me decide where I stand! All of which shows everyone should read the ebook and think about their own security set up.
