Picasa – Unbelievable Photo management.
The digtal age is one of gigantic & messy proportions. In fact, dealing with the mass of digital pictures, movies & mp3’s on one’s PC is a monstrous task.
I am alwasy on the look out for something that easily manages and manipulates said data, without destroying the fragile folder structures I have created upon my hard disk.
Scanning the digital pictures is a background task whilst you manage albums view pictures and create slide shows. They have a "Timeline" feature that allows you to view your albums in a brilliantly executed digital album that is magic to use.
The user interface is brain dead and very sexy (can you use those terms together?)
The product uses Google search capability to ensure your albums are always up to date with new additions.
I’d give this a 4/5.
Google’s investors should remain content with intelligent acquisitions such as this.
