Picasa Web Albums

I use Picasa to manage my photos. It’s a great program that works very quickly and allows you to index and categorize your photos very easily. It manages your photos from your camera, memory card, or other source, and imports them into the program. It allows you to do basic editing to the pictures, including red-eye reduction, cropping, changing to black and white, etc. It also does a great job helping you backup your photos. In Picasa, you can directly upload your pictures to a web page of your own, or even upload them to various online photo processors with ease. I love using Walgreen’s uploading, as we can pick them up at the local store in about an hour.

They have recently created a Web Album system that allows the user to directly upload their pictures from Picasa to Google servers. From here, you can share your pictures with the world, or only to people that you send a direct link to. You get 250 MB of space for free, and can buy 6 Gigs for $25/year! That is a great price, and would hold almost everyone’s pictures that they would be interested in sharing.

I’ve created a photo album of our recent trip to the Georgia Aquarium…some good pictures, especially this one:

  1. How awesome is my boy!!!!!!!! I could eat him up!

    But where are all the other pictures that were out on your website?

  2. Right now they’re in two places, but I think we’re going to move it all over to the Picasa Web Folders.

    You can still see the other pictures by clicking on the Photo Album link at the top of any of the pages on my blog.
