    "Useful but idiosyncratic"

    December 14, 2010  |   By bousozoku

    Pros

    Album upload to Picasa, face detection

    Cons

    WINE, Non-native, face detection happens on every launch, cannot revise captions which can be done with the Picasa Web Albums Uploader.

    Summary

    It's quite useful if you have albums going to Picasa Web Albums. It works with slightly different parameters than the Picasa Web Albums Uploader, which is confusing. Unable to edit captions and upload sizes differ. The face detection is particularly useful when tagging hundreds of people, as I have for sales. It is also maddening because it does a scan on the application launch and it misses faces if they aren't at a certain angle. The scroll bars are non-standard on all operating systems--they're more like acceleration bars. The more you go a certain way, the faster they move the list. It's a useful application in grouping (I don't edit with Picasa) but it takes some patience.
