Picasa: Photo management software, free from Google. Find, edit, share photos.: “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 know. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organized.”
Don’t know if it just me being slow on the uptake, but I happened to be looking at the downloads site at google and saw this thing called Picasa so downloaded it and gave it a whirl.
At the time it was version 1.6.x.x and it looked pretty neat. I have a whole suite of photo editing software but this is a great tool for doing quick and nasty edits for emailing.
There is also an addon called Hello which lets you IM messages to other ‘Hello’ users and a nifty little feature for sending pictures to your blog. It’s a great tool for what it does and I didn’t even know it existed… I’d recommend giving it a try, even if just because it is free !!!
