"" My experience with Picassa ""

What do you like best?

Picassa was my one of the best choice to edit photos, it made easy to manage my daily photos.

free to download with simple and user-friendly interface

Its cropping feature is very handy to use, just right-click on photo and you are ready to go

You can upload directly to Picasso as it comes with integrated photo sharing feature

With Picassa in your laptop, you can apply lot's of filters to your photos

It takes less storage space and is easy on the system

What do you dislike?

User-interface could be made a lot more attractive

limited websites to share photos with

It loads all your picture at one place which makes's it difficult to find photos which are useful

privacy is compromised with Picassa as it loads all your pc photos at one place

It doesn't have the efficient searching

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Picassa is simple to use and manages all your photos, you don't have to be professional to use it to edit photos

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

picassa is basically used to edit photos, it comes it handy if you wanted to compress the size of photo which you have to upload on some application with restriction of size and dimensions just by applying some filters or by increasing contrast, saturation etc

"Picassa Review"

What do you like best?

The best feature is that Picassa is a free software. While Picassa is not available for download anymore (Google only has Google Photos now) those who have it downloaded can still use it. Beyond its no cost, it offers great editing options and requires no exporting of pictures. All photos on your computer are immediately imported when you open the application as well.

What do you dislike?

The only downfall is that it is no long available for download. Google has replaced it with Google Photos and thus, Picassa cannot be downloaded directly from Google. There are still download links available on the internet but the software will no longer be updated and supported from Google.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Picassa is great for people who have tons of pictures and really want to edit quickly and on the fly. It allows you to quickly edit a picture, view changes instantly and then move on to the next picture. No cost means its great for any type of customer, from businesses to individual users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Picassa to solve any image related issue. It is the primary photo program on all computers here.

What Video Editing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Mi Experiencia con Picassa"

What do you like best?

Picassa es un programa de edición de imágenes muy conveniente y fácil de usar. Todas las ediciones que se pueden aplicar son fáciles, simples e intuitivos. Con Picassa puedes obtener fotos profesionales en poco tiempo y muy poco esfuerzo.Para aprovechar al máximo las funciones del programa como las copias de seguridad en líneas automáticas, debes tener una cuenta en Google+ e iniciar sesión en ella, de esta manera, podrás compartir tus fotos aun más rápido,

What do you dislike?

Lo malo de Picassa es que no es tan útil si deseas realizar una edición más compleja o con mayores detalles, como para satisfacer a un cliente difícil. Además, solo podrás compartir los accesos directos a través de Google+.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Picasa es gratis, y puede servirte para realizar ediciones fotográficas rápidas y sencillas, además de mantener ordenadas todas las fotografías que poseas en tu computador.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Picassa puede ayudarme cuándo necesito realizar una pequeña edición rápida y sencilla para compartirla con mis contactos de Google +. Su reconocimiento facial es excelente y me ayuda a mantener ordenadas todas las fotografias en mi pc que entre tantas a veces no logro encontrarlas.

"Slow but gets video editing done"

What do you like best?

I enjoy how Picassa is a Google product so it syncs up with all of my devices. When I edit videos I sometimes need to export and save the files in different formats and it is easy to do in the program.

What do you dislike?

When I started using Picassa it was hard for me to figure out how to add new clips and shorten some of my existing ones. I've used Picassa since 2010 or so and they have made improvements since then but first using the program was the hardest for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Picassa is a program that I feel most business don't use anymore due to PhotoShop and other web editors out there. I used it for school projects but currently I'm sure you could find something better.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Picassa for editing clips of events and showing my sponsors ahead of time what they can expect. The main benefits of using it is that you don't need to be a professional to use it. I had problems originally but the benefits outweigh the cons especially when it comes to extracting files.

"Lots of features yet not very organized"

What do you like best?

There are many things you can do with your photos in Picassa. If you are tech savvy and have the desire to do projects with your photos this can be a great tool.

What do you dislike?

I personally do not have the need to do many things with my photos, so Picassa's disorganization is more of a hassle for me than the benefits it provides. I have enjoyed using Picassa more than the base downloaded applications provided by windows, but I wouldn't recommend to those who will not take advantage of its full capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those wishing to do a lot with their photos, a difference program such as photoshop may be your best bet. For those who do not need to do a lot with their images and photos, I'd recommend Google Photos which is what I use and am happy with. If you fall somewhere in between these two, then Picassa may be the application for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe that marketers can use Picassa in many ways to create designrs and photos for their needs. I've realized that Picassa does interface well on Window's platforms, and can easily be installed and switched to if need be.

"Un gran visor de fotografías con mucho potencial"

What do you like best?

Picasa es un visualizador de imágenes con mucho potencial el cual permite entre otras características, el visualizado web de imágenes, la edición de las mismas y uno de los puntos destacados, es que permite la creación de mosaicos de varias imágenes de manera rápida y sencilla. Adicionalmente permite la inserción de texto en las imágenes.

Otro punto favorable de este software es que es multiplataforma, lo cual permite la sincronización de nuestra carpeta en varios dispositivos.

Otra de las características resaltantes, es que ordena de forma automática en carpetas, permitiendo así el fácil acceso a las mismas.

Adicionalmente, lo que hace de este software tan atractivo es que es totalmente gratuito.

What do you dislike?

Una de las principales desventajas es el tiempo en que tarda en procesar los cambios realizados en las imágenes, lo cual puede resultarnos tedioso si queremos editar varias imágenes y compartirlas al instante en la web. Sin duda, es el principal factor negativo de esta aplicación, lo cual puede ser solucionable en una próxima versión.

Otro punto negativo es el prácticamente inexistente soporte con el que cuenta actualmente esta aplicación, lo cual juega en contra a la hora de aprovechar esa información para mejorar futuras versiones.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si buscan un software de edición de imágenes totalmente gratuito y sencillo de utilizar, sin lugar a dudas Picasa es la mejor elección.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Permite la fácil edición de una o mas imágenes y poder compartirlas en nuestros blogs personales o de la empresa.

"Picassa is a great place for photos. "

What do you like best?

Easily edit and organize your photos. Stored all in the same place with an easy to use search option. You can also have it scan your photos folder continuously so you don't have to upload to numerous places.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes importing from network folders can be tricky

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We use the desktop version which is great, but not available anymore. We've used the online version as well, which makes sharing photos and albums really easy.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Can easily search for labelled photos, much easier than microsoft's photo program. The editing options are great. It's also simple to revert to the original. So you can post nicely edited photos on facebook or your website.

Photos can be easily uploaded on googleplus and blogger.

It has efficient face recognition with some advanced editing features like, select from fill light, highlight, shadows, color temperature, and the neutral color picker.

What do you dislike?

Sharing option is limited to google+ and blogger.

It gives only one GB of free online space for storing photos.

The option for search is limited in nature.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For a basic organizing and editing package, Picasa is a great tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Picasa for editing the pictures.

It is an easy and pleasant program best suited for people who want to quickly prep their pictures for sharing and not get bogged down in the editing process.

"Free, easy and fast photo editor in the cloud"

What do you like best?

The interface it's simple and intuitive.

The service it's free.

The photo organizing and tagging feature it's very useful.

Editing an image it's very quick, just require one-click and select any special-effect filters or basic image correction options.

What do you dislike?

All edits are global, with no ability to alter portions of your picture.

Sharing shortcuts only for google+ and blogger, there isn't for other social media.

It would be useful to have an interface-tour document or video.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a robust and effective editing program for users who want to share their pictures.

"Good photo viewer and editor"

What do you like best?

It is a user friendly software which loads up all th eimages in your computer so you can have easy access to them using the software.

I really like the crop and animations, and effects that can be included.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it wants to load all the pictures from your computer into one place.

If someone else is viewing the pictures with you it becomes a privacy issue as all pictures can be seen by default.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Defnitely recommend

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it view and edit pictures.

That it doesn't have more options, similar to Adobe or PicMonkey.
