Picasa 2

Picasa 2... will you marry me? What an elegant piece of ass this software is!!! I am in a state of complete “WOW”! Thank you google!

I downloaded and installed Picasa 2 a couple of days ago and I have fallen in love with it. I used the earlier version of Picasa and I was amazed by it. Well, lets just say that this FREE upgrade tops the last version 10 fold! I spent about 2 hours fixing all my ugly (dark and ill-lighted) pictures in seconds using this app. There is this really cool 'Fill Light' slider that fixes dark pictures with ease. If you forget to use your flash, don't worry about it, Picasa 2 fixes it perfectly. For a long time, I had my camera configured wrong and a lot of the pictures that we took outside turned out blue and pastelle looking. Picasa 2 fixed those with a couple of button clicks. As I was modifying my photos I kept my eye on this little chart in the lower right hand side of the screen (called a 'Histogram & Camera Information' chart). It showed me all of my color levels along with other lighting information. It has this 'Collage' button that allows you to create a cool picture collage. It also integrates Blogger, Hello, and GMail service too. Nevermind my half-ass details, click here and see all of them. :D

Bottom line is this: If you take lots of digital pictures, download Picasa 2 now. This is a must have for anybody with a digital camera. And if you are wondering... No, I do not work for google; I simply respect good software.
