<p>Everybody knows that eversince Google came about, I never let them out of my sight. I've been onto their latest all the time and been monitoring their moves and progress. Well, who's one techie who hasn't got hooked into Google'ing??</p>
I started liking all their products.. from the webby applications like Search Engine, GMail, Google Reader; to their standalone applications like Google Desktop, Google Earth, etc. One thing though that I noticed about Google is that most of their products are made available only to Windows platform users. It didn't bother me though, but when I did find out that they had Picasa ported to a Linux platform also, it made me feel happier.
Picasa is still the best photo organizer I've used. (Well, at least amongst free ones). Here are some of the reasons why I like it:
- It offers you the capability to sort out your pictures and move them across folders and devices.
- It allows for you to tag photos, associate them across multiple albums, and use star ratings too!
- It also allows you to put captions to your photos and offer a smooth browsing effect
- It can export your albums to an online gallery or quick send them through email. It can also create slideshows and export them into a CD
- Best of all, with all these features, you can even edit your photos and keep a copy of the original version of the photo!
There are still a lot more I can't begin to enumerate why I'm happy to have Picasa for Linux. I think I'd have to reitemize my list of must have graphic tools. (See more about Picasa here)
