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. Picasa also
makes advanced editing simple by putting one-click
fixes and powerful effects at your fingertips.
Picasa also makes it a snap to share your
pictures – you can email, print photos at
home, and make gift CDs. And with the new
Web Albums feature, you can upload your
photos to the web with just one click. You
can even download your friends’ photos directly
back to Picasa on your own computer. It’s
never been so easy to share photos online.
Picasa instantly locates and organises
all the pictures on your computer.
Find the pictures you forgot you had.
Picasa organises your entire collection while you
watch, scanning the images on your computer and
automatically sorting them by date.
Move and re-name pictures from inside Picasa.
Want to clean up messy folders and move pictures
around on your computer's hard drive? Simply drag
and drop pictures from one folder in Picasa to
another. Picasa will make the change permanent
after double-checking with you. Want to change
a picture's filename from 671056398a.jpg to Lisa.jpg?
In Picasa, it only takes seconds to re-name one
picture or a group of pictures.
Make a label.
Use labels to tag your photos into quick groupings
inside Picasa. Viewing and sharing the pictures you
grouped under a label is easy – they make great
slide shows and movies or you can email them to friends.
Add a star rating.
Give a gold star to any photo you love: it turns
your favourites into visual standouts at a glance.
Picasa even has a star search that reduces your
entire photo collection to the best of the best
in less than a second.
Keep one picture in multiple albums.
Picasa creates a new “instance” of each photo you
label without taking up more space on your computer,
so you can put the same picture into multiple albums.
Have photos you want to keep to yourself? You
can add passwords to any of your Picasa collections
(this does not affect which pictures you and others
can see on your computer’s hard drive).
