Google Updates Picasa and Picasa Web Albums

Posted by ClifNotes, Sep 2008, permalink Photo Organizers

 

I first tried Picasa back in March of 2005. Google has made lots of improvements to the software and the free web services since then.

 

I still have Picasa installed and I still use it occasionally, but I am out of touch with it's newer features. I recently read a blog post by Frederic Lardinois at ReadWriteWeb. It mentions several new features that I was not aware of. He shows a few screen shots and explains some of the details. Check it out.

 

Google's Picasa team released a number of major updates to both its desktop photo managing application Picasa and its online photo gallery this week. On Tuesday, we already reported about the addition of facial recognition to the Picasa web albums, but Google also added Creative Commons licenses and email uploads, while the desktop application now lets you create collages, retouch photos, add text to your images, and upload your videos to YouTube.

Notes

Wow! It's not often I'm blown away by a photo program. I should've expected this from Google. They keep making my internet life better. The brief description below doesn't do this software justice. The install was a problem for me but I solved it by turning off my firewall. Picasa might be trying to contact home before installing. Why? I don't have a clue. After installing it asked me if it could search my PC for pictures. It did a nice quick search and found lots and lots of pics. Then the fun began as I started playing with Picasa's rich feature set. I highly recommend Picasa and I think you'll get the most use from it if you have GMail or Blogger.

 

Thanks to Tutelage at Xanga for prompting me to try it out.

Picasa is software that helps you instantly find, edit and share all the pictures on your PC. Every time you open Picasa, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organized by date with folder names you will recognize. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organized.
