A free software download from the Google's website.
Picasa is Google's photo organizer software. Get started by using Picasa instead of your usual software to easily move photos from your camera to your computer. Then, every time you open Picasa, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organized by date with folder names you will recognize. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organized.
Picasa also makes advanced editing simple by putting one-click fixes and powerful effects at your fingertips. And Picasa makes it a snap to share your pictures – you can email, print Flight Sim screenshots & photos home, make gift CDs, instantly share via Hello™, and even post pictures on Your own Blog.
Picasa instantly locates and organises all the pictures on your computer.
Find the pictures you forgot you had.
Picasa organises your entire collection while you watch, scanning the images on your computer and automatically sorting them by date.
Move and re-name pictures from inside Picasa.
Want to clean up messy folders and move pictures around on your computer's hard drive? Simply drag and drop pictures from one folder in Picasa to another. Picasa will make the change permanent after double-checking with you. Want to change a picture's filename from 671056398a.jpg to Boeing-BBJ.jpg? In Picasa, it only takes seconds to re-name one picture or a group of pictures.
Make a label.
Use labels to tag your photos into quick groupings inside Picasa. Viewing and sharing the pictures you grouped under a label is easy - they make great slide shows and movies or you can email them to friends.
Add a star rating.
Give a gold star to any screenshot you love: it turns your favourites into visual standouts at a glance. Picasa even has a star search that reduces your entire screenshots collection to the best of the best in less than a second.
Keep one picture in multiple albums.
Picasa creates a new "instance" of each screenshot you label without taking up more space on your computer, so you can put the same picture into multiple albums.
Have photos you want to keep to yourself? You can add passwords to any of your Picasa collections (this does not affect which pictures you and others can see on your computer’s hard drive).
