Key Features of Picasa
I must say that the program has a rather small size of the installation package (about 14 MB). So, hard disk is almost none. But in the end, it provides the user with a pretty good ability to organize folders and sorting image files.
After installation is complete when you first start the program automatically scans your computer for images and gives a complete list of everything that is available on the hard drive or removable media. Among the supported formats are presented jpg, bmp, gif, png, psd, tif. In principle, at any time, you can use manual sorting, and allocate your favorite photos by using the "gold star". The program automatically sorts the files by name or date. When organizing directories that way you will always be able to easily find the photo you are interested in. Incidentally, you can assign photos and shortcuts, and then set it to search for him.
Also, the program has a standard set of functions for image editing. These include cropping, scaling and size, change the brightness or contrast, taking away the red-eye effect, shift, rotate, and more. Additional features for working with images presented 12 effects (filters) that you can use to add, say, blur or something else to the selected picture. Such effects are found in many programs. And it is quite elementary, you can create any collage.
But among the unusual opportunity I would like to focus on creating a video file of the necessary graphics. Basically, it takes several mine done with a couple of clicks. And when you consider that the program supports most popular video formats such as avi, mpg, wmv, asf, mov, then play the resulting album as a slide show, it is possible, as in the program, and the "iron" players.
Among the least important functions and has the ability to record photos, albums or videos directly to disk, bypassing the use of the procedure for recording a third-party programs and utilities that, in general, is very convenient.
And it is absolutely necessary feature is the ability to send photos directly by e-mail. In this case, the program will determine the size of the photo or compresses the image for easy sending and receiving.
For those who need to print, also provides this function. And supported by a fairly large number of print formats.
Well, in the end, you can always use the backup and then writing to the disk. If necessary, all the information about your images or directories can be restored without any problems.
