Picasa Photo Viewer
What is Picasa Photo Viewer?
Picasa is an image viewing and image editing software developed and published by Google since 2004, after its acquisition of the rights to the software. It was originally created by a developer called Lifescape and its famous name is patterned after the celebrated painter Picasso and the Spanish “mi casa”, which means “my house”. Picasa is a free download from Google and the software also includes access to an integrated photo-sharing website, similar to Flickr, via Google Accounts, and onling photo printing services.
Picasa, aside from being renowned the world over for its capability to sort your image files, can also edit pictures using basic tools such as red eye reduction, filters, cropping, sharpness and color enhancement, and text captions. Picasa’s features are many and varied; it supports tagging of images, searching using various filters and by tags, importing, and even facial recognition and geotagging, where it can add location data to your image for a more personalized touch. Aside from this Picasa supports a wide range of image formats (although not the animation on an animated GIF), including Google’s WebP format; its search feature works similar to Google’s for an easy, intuitive searching through your collections of images.
