Apologies for the temporary site outage from approximately 1PM ET on Monday, December 11 through the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday. The Buzzboard was targeted (yet again) by a hacker, this time from the Middle East. The site was able to be restored using a backup file from early Sunday morning.

Picasa

Post by Turkeytop » Sat Dec 01, 2018 7:25 pm

I use Picasa for uploading my photos to the computer and for editing. I've read that Picasa is being phased out and may soon be no longer usable. Is there photo software one can buy that will do what Picasa does?

Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

I just downloaded the one called Gimp. Now, I don't know how to use it.

Gimp has a bit of learning curve.

Except for the online features, does it matter that Picasa is no longer supported? I still use it all the time! Works fine for me (though I never use the online features).

If I get a new computer will I still be able to download Picasa?

I imagine so. Maybe not from Google but someone will have a mirrored copy. I see it is available at oldversion.com. The only hitch would be if it has to "check in" with a Google server during installation. If that's the case, it might not work, but I don't think its that sophisticated.
