Google releases Picasa for Linux





saurabh.sauron
Google has officially released their image management software Picasa 2 for Linux. It is available for download at

http://labs.google.com

all the features that are available for Windows are their in the Linux version. some basic image editing like cropping, shading are also available. the program auto-detects all the images present on the partition. it is quite light on resources and is quite effective.

making collages is also possible with two or three images. it is very simple to use, unlike GIMP.

the installer is available as a Debian (deb) package, RPM(rpm) package or as a binary file. choose the installation according to the linux distribution.

It's good to see quality applications make their way from the windows world to linux. Sure to get this one when it makes it way into gentoo portage.

Agreed. I'm finding many of the open source alternatives are as good or often better than their commercial counterparts.

Now I'm just waiting for some really good cad/cam systems to come about. Wink

something that i noticed. they havent actually made it FOR linux. they r just using WineHQ libraries to run. that makes up the file size of 24 MB in comparison to 5 MB for Windows...

Hi!

I´m using Mandriva Linux, and I will start using this new program. I already have it in my other computer which has Windows XP installed.

King Regards,
