Google’s Picasa is a photo editing photo – but it is also so much more than that. Picasa gives you all the features that we are used to in a photo editing program, and all for free. So with the Picasa you can crop your images, resize them, add effects, remove red eye from photos, color enhancement, retouching, and more.

But Picasa also gives you an excellent way of organizing your existing images: by using facial recognition process. It works like this: the software goes through all your photos and is able to group together all the photos that it believes belong to the same person. Of course, the software is not always correct, and so it gives you the option to confirm its selection. When this is done, you can very easily locate photos of a specific person just by searching them by name. The program gives even more organizing options: you can tag photos and even geotag them, that is, adding information about where the photo was taken.

But perhaps one of the best things about Picasa is how easily it integrates with your online activity. It is really easy to share your photos on social networks, or email them to your friends, or post them in your blog. With Picasa, you and your photos are always connected.

Software Review

Photo sharing and exploration service

Picasa is a free photo editing and sharing program provided by Google, available on both Windows and Mac. After installation, Picasa searches through all of a computers files to find and display all photos and pictures in its program. All pictures are kept in their original folders to make them easy to find, though they can also be placed into new created albums.
In addition to the normal features that would be expected in photo-editing software (red-eye removal, cropping, resizing), Picasa offers extras such as facial recognition. The recognition software searches through all available photos and groups together all the photos of each person (allowing you to confirm or deny that the selected pictures are of the same individual) allowing the user to name and easily find all the photos of a desired person in the ‘People’ section. As new photos are uploaded they are also scanned and added to these albums. Users are also able to tag as well as geotag photos. There are a number of more advanced editing features available, which are easy to find and use, such as colour enhancement and retouching to get rid of any damage to old photos.
As well as the ability to organise and edit photos, Picasa offers an easy way to share. There are options to email, publish to a blog or Google+ (with the option to tag friends) and even to order prints. Ordering prints is as simple as selecting the correct country and then choosing from a large number of companies such as snapfish and photobox, allowing users to easily log-in or create an account and begin uploading photos.
