Picasa Version 3.0 For Linux Available

By October 11, 2008

Follow me on:

Google has released version 3.0 of the photo management software Picasa for Linux. Picasa is a program for comprehensively locating and organizing images on a computer system. Itís main objective is to help you to get the large quantity of photos under control that you may have downloaded from your digital camera. It can handle up to one million photos.

The latest version is more tightly integrated into the Linux desktop and enables the user to invoke any available file manager. Similarly, the user is not tied to one particular mail program when emailing photos from Picasa. The software also interacts with the camera detection functions of KDE and GNOME to give the user the option to start Picasa when a camera is connected to the computer.

Picasa supports web albums and enables Linux users to publish images on the Internet. Storage of changes enable undo operations even after an editing process has been closed. Functions like face detection and red-eye reduction have been further improved. For more information, see here.
