Picasa can transfer, find, organize, edit, print, and share images, all with this easy-to-use product. Watch Picasa automatically organize all your pictures into elegant albums by date. Having all your photos in one place means no more time wasted searching for folders or files.

Google replaced Picasa with Google Photos.

⚠ Note: This product is not developed anymore and might not function properly.

If you are looking for alternatives, we recommend you to download Photoshop Lightroom or Ashampoo Photo Commander.

It was a popular and free image management and editing software developed by Google. It was designed to help users organize, edit, and share their photos and videos effortlessly. It offered a range of powerful features for both novice and advanced users, making it a versatile tool for anyone interested in managing their digital media.

The program works with JPEG, GIF, BMP, PSD, and movie files and is compatible with most digital cameras; it detects your USB driver and imports pictures into albums.


Share and name tags on Google+
If you've joined Google+, you can use the app to share directly with the circles you've created in Google+. With the release of the software, you can now upload and share your name tags on Google+. Note that if you choose not to join Google+, name tags won't change at all.

Beautiful web albums
Show your photos at their best. View full-screen slideshows, see your pictures arranged on a global map, enjoy video playback, and more.

Sharing made simple
Publish your favorite photos online with one click. Create stunning online photo albums to share with friends and family, or public albums for the world to see. Get notified when your "Favorites" post new photos.

Focus on people
People matter in your photos. This technology helps you automatically organize your photos based on the people in them, and works in the program and the Web Albums.

Edit to perfection
Improve almost any picture with the software's one-click fixes for common problems like red-eye, color, and lighting. Or, use tuning and effects to make your best photos look even better.

Get organized
The tool automatically finds all the photos on your PC, wherever they are, and will organize them in seconds.

Add places
Easily add geo-tags to your photos so that you can remember exactly where they're from using Google Maps.

It's free to use
The app is free to download, and the Web Albums provides 1 gigabyte of free storage -- that's enough space for 4,000 wallpaper-size photos.
