    "Good product overall"

    April 5, 2013  |   By pcarrizosa

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.19

    Pros

    The software loaded easily and launched immediately. It scanned my photos quickly and fairly accurately.

    Cons

    At times, I tried to write a name and the program did not recognize the name and tried to create a new file. It also created "unknown person" files and moving those photos to other files is not easy.

    Summary

    All in all, a good program with just a few quirks.

    "Picasa - One of Googles Best"

    March 30, 2013  |   By pshane

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.19

    Pros

    Excellent Organizing and Editing program, Especially for FREE!!

    Cons

    Can't think of any

    Summary

    I own PhotoShop Elements 11, and LightRoom 4, as well as having Picasa. - For everyday photo editing, Picasa is 'Spot On' with many excellent features for editing photos. -
    If you need to remove background clutter, (power poles or lines, etc.), then you'll need something else, like PSE11.

    "Still happy with Picasa after all these years."

    March 28, 2013  |   By rafimarkus

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.19

    Pros

    Picasa is easy and fast to use. Lots of features. The learning curve is steep.

    Cons

    Not a con, but still missing. It would be very helpful in crop mode to be able to overlay a picture with grids, like the very useful one of "rule of thirds".

    "Excellent screen grabber with markup tools"

    February 9, 2013  |   By chrisjw37

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.12

    Pros

    Good screen grabber, brilliant for Google maps (full screen, better results than their printsouts) and markup tools to highlight directions and locations adding text and arrows is a cinch.

    prints the result out full A4, so makes a handy street guide.
    Excellent for finding tiny places in London on foot, and the quickest route between the tube, theatre and restaurant.

    Cons

    None really -

    It doesn't need to be running in the background all time; so run as a simple open and close program option would be better.

    Summary

    Great screen grabber with markup tools.

    TIP: to print the result to a pdf file for e-mailing, try doPdf (FREEWARE) which works as a pretend printer drive and produces great results direct from PicPick.

    I know, its good and I'm a ruddy genius too, la la la la etc.....

    "picasa feature never works"

    January 13, 2013  |   By gcjohns

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.12

    Pros

    Nice face recognition

    Cons

    Timeline has never worked and still doesn't. Bowhere is there a clear example of how to migrate picasa to a new computer.

    Summary

    If it was cleaned up and made more user friendly it would be an excellent app.

    "Very Good Program"

    January 12, 2013  |   By mauries

    Version: Picasa 3.9.0 Build 136.12

    Pros

    It's a great program and easy to use. Has brilliant face indentification and editing tools.

    Cons

    Even though I create Albums for my photos I finish up with virtually hundreds of "folders" that I do not use and just get in the way. Deleting a picture from a folder also deletes it from an album so it is prudent not to delete anything and that only adds to the confusion!

    Summary

    Probably the pick of photo programs, free or purchased but still confusing!
