"Picasa still cannot get to the next level"
FREE, adequate for 65% of users, great for amateur happy snappers
too amateurish, lacks clone tool & fine touching abilities, off the shelf & clunky
As with cellphone technology with too much attention to kid's toys, Picasa seems superglued in puberty struggling to become a mature, serious, professional, versatile PHOTO & IMAGE management tool. It lacks the ability to make professional images of the family bar-mitzvah happy-snaps. Existing tools are too limited and do not co-operate, with one over-riding instead of complementing the other. The absence of cloning, stitching and very limited effects leaves one frustrated and behind. Picasa is falling further behind each day because it's treading water and re-arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic instead of moving boldly on to the Next Level. The only thing really going for it is that it's FREE!
