Do you still remember the number of photos you took when your first
child was born? I guess you must have, like me, spent a lot of money
on rolls and rolls of film. With the excitement of being a first
time parents, we just can't stop shooting the little cutie. And with
the invention of digital camera, we don't even have to worry about
the cost now. We just press the shuttle and capture the beautiful
moments. Yesterday, my wife just proudly showed me a 'masterpiece
photo' (she claimed) of our baby....;-)
With tons of photos sitting inside the computer, I believe you
probably have the same problem like me in organizing them. I have
used a f'ree software by Google called Picasa to organize all
my photos. Picasa is a photo searching, editing and sharing
application that helps you organize all of your pictures.
What I like most about Picasa is that it automatically finds
all of the photos stored on your computer and places them in albums
organized by date immediately after you install the software. It is
that powerful! Not to mention that Picasa also makes
beautiful slide shows with only one click. Well, there are many
other great features that you got to download to try out yourself.
Anyway, it is f'ree. You can
click here to download. I hope you have a great week. Take care!
