WFMW: Picasa

works for me wednesday at we are that family

I am by no means a great photographer. I would like to be, but I don't have the equipment or know-how to take really good pictures. I have a point & shoot Olympus that is about 5 years old, and I mainly just take candid shots of the kids.

I daydream of having a great camera and Photoshop one day, but it's just not in the budget right now. What is in the budget right now? Picasa.

Picasa is a free, downloadable photo-editing software from Google. It has all the basic tools you would need for casual editing - red-eye correction, retouching, lighting correction - plus a few extra "special effects" tools. It's easy to use and you can't beat the price!

Picasa works for me!

I love Picasa, it's so straightforward and user friendly. I actually did a WFMW on it last month. Did you download the newest version? Picasa 3 has a lot of great features that the earlier versions don't have.

you can also go to and use the free online version. It's pretty decent.
