Picasa is a wonderful free software. Many people know Picasa as just free photo editing software. However, Picasa is much more than that.
Picasa is a full featured photo management software. What that means is that it centrally manages all your photos located on your hard drive.
When you install Picasa, it will scan your hard drive for all jpeg, gif, bmp and other image files. It automatically arranges all the photo files in nice albums based on dates of photos. So, you can easily look for photos just by looking into the albums – no need to scan entire hard drive for that.
Apart from that, when you add some new photos to your computer, Picasa detects those as well when it is started next time. So, you can be always assured that all your photos are being centrally managed. Picasa also provides the innovative name tag feature to tag people in photos. Really cool.
Apart from Photo management, Picasa also provides easy photo sharing tools to share photos in chat, email using Picasa’s in built mail client, and you can even order prints right from Picasa. You can also upload pictures to Picasa web albums, geotag them, and use them in your blog.
Apart from all these nice Photo Management features, Picasa is a powerful free photo editor. It provides all the photo editing options such as red eye fix, crop, resize, make collages, change contrast, add effects, create slideshows etc.
Even though many other free photo editing software also provide such features, Picasa makes it really easy to use them. The interface is very easy, intuitive, and totally functional. It also has a one-click photo fixing tool that fixes common problems in photos, such as red eye.
Picasa is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Try Picasa. This is one of the best free photo management software, and free photo editor. This is another free software that we totally love.
