Picasa 3.9.138 Build 151
This tool can be very well used without an Internet connection, although you can fully enjoy all its features only when you are online. Basically, Picasa is especially tailored to help keep all photos organized, regardless if you would like to sort them by album, date or some other type of information.
Ad-riddled setup and simple-to-handle GUI
Installation is pretty easy, yet you should pay an extra bit of attention because the setup package comes with third-party software that can change the settings of your web browser.
The interface is pleasant as well as easy to use, enabling you to browse through your photos in an instant. Picasa automatically scans your computer for pictures and organizes them in folders, showing you thumbnails for instant browsing.
Edit multiple items, back up data and create a collage
Aside from the fact that it is such a powerful photo manager, this software utility also provides some nice editing functions. It enables you to resize and crop pictures and also add various effects to improve image quality.
Picasa can automatically synchronize your library with a Picasa online account, so you can share and show photos to your friends with just a few clicks. Also included in the feature pack are a backup function, a picture collage creator, a batch editing script, a folder manager and many other goodies that can make your life a lot easier.
A last evaluation
All things considered, Picasa holds its own very well and given its popularity this may be one of the top choices for any user who needs effortless photo sharing and management. The system’s performance is not going to be burdened at all, the response time is quite good and there are sufficient features included to keep you busy for quite a while.
