    "Good for a free program"

    February 23, 2012  |   By clarkbgm

    Pros

    Picasa has about all the function I need and it is very stable. I am able to do the editing (most of the time) needed and the edited version shows up like anticipated on prints.

    Cons

    I have used Picasa for several years and it does a great job. The newest version has changed and I am not so crazy about it. Sometimes they need to remember "if it ain't broke don't fix it". I do, though, like the new feature of being able to upload photos easier. Some of the editing options in the latest version are not quite as easy as in older versions. The scan for photos everytime I open Picasa is a bit irritating. Everytime I opened the program and it scanned for photos; I would wind up with duplicate folders (labeled filename(1) etc. It was taking forever to go through the photos because it was necessary to scroll forever to get past all the duplicate folders.

    Summary

    In view of its functionality and price it is an excellent choice.
