    "Reliable but some limitations"

    September 21, 2012  |   By clarkbgm


    I have used picasa for a long time and it has served my needs for the most part. I normally use to edit red eyes, crop etc the most basic functions. It is easy to upload to an online storage (1GB) free and it has worked well also.


    Some of the editing functions are above my head (I guess). The newest version has done auto loads of image folders over & over everytime I open and I have tried to determine how to get it to stop but have not been successful. As far as I have been able to figure out, lighting corrections are lacking but most do fine. Photos uploaded from mobile phones are hit or miss for editing or clarity with this program too. It is easy to use for most part but some areas are hard for me to use and understand correctly.


    This is an above average photo editor + and now stores videos as well. I use in conjunction with photo album onlline and have had the account for several years. It is certainly worth the cost and does a great job. I didn't rate 5 because I haven't found a any program that does everything I'd like but it does an excellent job to the limits of it's functionality and as a free program, it rates superb.
