new laptop, can I use picasa?

I'm struggling here. I need a free downloadable photo viewer, editor software that I can resize and e-mail photos.

I've never used a laptop and am struggling with that. PLUS, it came with windows 8 and I tried downloading Picasa (which I'm used to and loved) and I can't get it to work for me.

Suggestions on how to get Picasa to work with Windows 8 or -- suggestions on an alternative software to use for my photos.

Thanks so much in advance.

Try Irfanview till you can get Picasa working. Never used Picasa so I don't know how it compares but Irfanview is a favorite of many and I have used it for over ten years. IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

Your pictures should be in a folder. You would access that folder using the Irfanview Open dialog or by drag and drop. When finished you would put them back in the folder.

PixResizer also works well and is very simple.
You can resize a single image or a whole folder .
