Picasa

Post by Turkeytop » Sat Dec 01, 2018 7:25 pm

I use Picasa for uploading my photos to the computer and for editing. I've read that Picasa is being phased out and may soon be no longer usable. Is there photo software one can buy that will do what Picasa does?


You have to use the good brand of duct tape. The cheap stuff, they can work it loose with their tongue.

Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

I just downloaded the one called Gimp. Now, I don't know how to use it.

Gimp has a bit of learning curve.

Except for the online features, does it matter that Picasa is no longer supported? I still use it all the time! Works fine for me (though I never use the online features).

If I get a new computer will I still be able to download Picasa?

I imagine so. Maybe not from Google but someone will have a mirrored copy. I see it is available at oldversion.com. The only hitch would be if it has to "check in" with a Google server during installation. If that's the case, it might not work, but I don't think its that sophisticated.

I have been using Photoshop forever. I do have gimp on my laptop but seldom use it because although it does many of the things Photoshop does, it does it differently. I haven't bothered with the learning curve because I'm going to have Photoshop anyway.

For something simple, that doesn't have such a learning curve and because of the fact I don't think you will be doing much graphic design, I would recommend this:

Whether deservedly or not, Photo Shop seems to have acquired a bad reputation. The term Photo Shop is used as a verb in a pejorative sense to suggest that the image is fake. As in, "The picture has obviously been Photo Shopped."
