Editors' Review


Picasa Web Albums is Google's Web photo-hosting service. Users get 1GB of free hosting, and images can be uploaded and manipulated using Picasa, Google's free desktop photo management application. Users who want additional storage can shell out up to $500 a year to bump up the hosted space to 400 times the size of the free hosting service.

Much like everything else Google, Picasa is exceptionally straightforward to use, with a tabbed interface offering three options--My Photos, Favorites, and Explore--the last of which lets you browse the public photo library. Next to the tabs, you'll find a prominent Upload button for adding photos to your albums, which you can set to various levels of privacy. Within your albums, you have the option to view a slideshow, share via e-mail, make a collage or movie, order prints, and edit various aspects.

We really like the integration between the desktop and Web application. Similar to .Mac and iPhoto, Picasa makes it really simple to take photos from your desktop and publish them online for others to see. We're also fans of the built-in geotagging that lets you set where photos were taken either by single photo, or by entire albums. It's a great way to browse photos if you feel like exploring.

"Reliable but some limitations"

September 21, 2012  |  By clarkbgm

 |  Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.09


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.
