This is photo software that even the least organized shutterbug will love. The first, and I think ultimately best, feature of Picasa is that it scans your hard drive (once, or every time you start the program) to hunt down photos wherever you may have stashed them. It then organizes them by folder and by year, so no matter how disorganized your hard disk may be, you’ll never know it by looking at your photo library in Picasa. There are also built-in backup utilities so you can be sure your photos are saved to another drive or burned to disk.
Once Picasa has scanned your drive and found all your pictures, you’ll be treated to a beautiful, easy-to-use interface that lets you easily scroll through your photosÂ in many ways: thumbnails, full-screen galleries, and even in a cool ‘timeline’ layout. You can enhance and correct images, too – there’s even a great ‘I’m feeling lucky’ option that auto-corrects the image. I had pretty good luck with it, but it won’t work on every on (much like the ‘auto levels’ feature in Photoshop if you’re familiar).
Then there are all the great things you can do with your images – email, print, buy prints, add to your blog and more. They’re all just at the click of a button on the lower right of the screen. You can even create a photo collage the print or use as wallpaper on your computer. There’s a simple grid or a layered picture look, much like the google screensaver.
Check it out if you’re looking for a way to organize all those great digital photos of yours – it sure beats sorting old shoeboxes full of prints!
