    Smile Picasa

    I've just downloaded "Picasa"; free digital image managing software.

    It looks like it could be quite useful.

    Anyone else out there using it?

    (I just had to think of a reason to try out the new look Press F1)

    I use it, it can be alright, as long as you disable the mediafinder. On of the best features is the enhance, which make's some photo's have the real colours, but you cant save it so it's not that useful.

    I use it when I want to view heaps(100's) of photos stored in seperate folders, does a fantastic job.

    Basic photo enhancing tools

    I think you can make albums and other stuff too.

    Thumbs up Re: Picasa

    Picasa is leaner, faster, prettier, and more versatile than the free Adobe program, and arguably better than some of the packages that come bundled with cameras.
    Recommended to people with out digital cameras and/or Win XP, if that makes sense. Don't forget that it's free

    I find Picasa neat tidy and very good for sending emails.

    Also very good for viewing all your photo folders at once.

    I've been using it for a little while now and find it by far the most useful album software that I've tried. Don't, however think that its an image retouching tool - it doesn't pretend to be. What it is is a fast viewing ablum and picture printing programme.

    This program was mentioned here not all that long ago but I didn't investigate it then. After all the comments here about it being a good photo viewing album I decided to take a look and am now sold on it myself - it's fantastic! Beats my Version 7 Paintshop Pro's photo browser hands down for ease of viewing photo folders.

    Thanks for bringing it to our attention, folks.
