    "Still only okay ..."

    March 6, 2010  |   By llewminati


    FREE, quick & versatile


    Lack of clone tool, limited variety of contrast/lighting restricts apps, auto-fixes are NOT good (too soft,too cool, too blue)


    Without a cloning tool Picasa remains pedestrian in touch-up abilities - especially with higher res images. It is far too limited to bring out the optimum in images and remains very much the "poor relative" using hand-me-down abilities. The lack of a Stitching Tool is a huge drawback because average images are doomed to stay average. That's why Picasa remains nothing more than a kids' plaything - and it could be so much more.
