Picasa Find the pictures you forgot you had.
Picasa organizes 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 an album.
Use the “Albums” collection to tag your photos into quick groupings inside Picasa. Viewing and sharing the pictures you grouped under an album is easy – they make great slideshows 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 favorites 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 otherscan see on your computer’s hard drive).
Send photos via email that are a joy to receive.
Take the guesswork out of sending photos. Picasa automatically resizes and attaches pictures to email messages at sizes your friends will be able to open. Works with most email programs, including Google’s Gmail.
Put pictures on your own site, for free.
Picasa Web Albums is the fast and easy way to put your photos on the web. Just select the photos in Picasa that you want to share and click to publish. In seconds, those photos are on your own web page, ready to share with
the people you know. Check out a few things you can do with Picasa Web Albums.
If you’re looking to post multiple photos onto your blog, Picasa’s “BlogThis!” button does the hard work for you by automatically transferring selected photos directly to Blogger.
Make beautiful slide shows.
With Picasa, you can turn a group of photos into a presentation with one click of the “Slideshow” button.
