Picasa

Picasa

Picasa is a software application for organizing and editing digital photos.

Each time Picasa is launched, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organized by date with folder names you will recognize.

Picasa for Linux runs the current Windows version of Picasa using a carefully tested version of Wine, an open-source implementation of the Windows application-programming interface (API).
