Why does Picasa ignore some images on my hard drive?

Picasa for Mac
I was looking for a program to use on my MacBook other than iPhotos. Picasa looked interesting when I found it, but I have been frustrated in that it seems to pick and chose what files it includes.
I discovered the place in tools where I chose how it scans folders/directories. I also found how for some reason it wasn't looking for GIF files... I was wanting to look at some logo files I had created for a web site and the folder wouldn't show up no matter what I did... finally I got the folder to show up when I set it up to look at GIF files and set the master folder for my "Sites" to "scan always". Fair enough as far as that goes... however only 4 of the files show up. It isn't a matter of duplicates either...
I think I might like to use Picasa more. It seems like there is less "overhead" in loading it up than iPhotos... but...
BTW It does rescan the folders, it does find GIF folders. It can frustrate me still though by being a bit less than intuitive... what happened to programs that were very intuitive to use?
PS Why does Google assume my page is longer than it is? (no scroll bar and the bottom of the page is not in sight?) Silly Google. We don't all use Windows Desktop and we don't all want to use Chrome. (Tried it, didn't like it on my MacBook. I do use it on my old PC though.)
