    "same old same old"

    December 26, 2009  |   By llewminati


    FREE, but that's about it!


    Very limited editing & manipulation functions, amateurish (for Grannies happy snaps only), clutters HDD with multiple copies, confusing tools. clunky and slow


    Adequate, indeed, only adequate, but Smartstone among others beats it for functionality, versatility, adaptability and scope. Like Google across the board, EVERYTHING needs major revamping. Google is resting on its laurels and that's going to spin around and bite - maybe even terminally for Picassa and several other programs. With price dropping on proper image storage and manipulation programs, we'll be dropping Picassa like a used bait in the new year. It really isn't worth the trouble and frustration.
