Finally – Picasa on Mac

I like iPhoto. It’s free and it does a decent job of cataloguing my photos. I also like Canon’s Digital Photo Professional which came with my camera… it catalogues my photos too, and lets me adjust RAW images to my heart’s content. But one program I missed from my PC days was Google’s Picasa, yet another image cataloguing and editing app.

Picasa image library

Well Picasa has finally made it onto the Mac. As with many of Google’s products, it’s a “beta” release, but it seems very stable and polished. In fact, it seems just like the PC version.

It quickly and easily added the images on my computer to the Picasa library, and even handled it well when I added my external hard drive to the scan list (which contains a couple of gigabytes of large images). Before I knew it I was up and running and playing around with the creative options, like this “polaroid” collage.

If you’ve used Picasa before you’ll know what to expect. If you haven’t give it a look and see how it suits you.

Visiting should auto-detect which version of Picasa you need.
