Photos & Picasa FAQ

This Photos Resources FAQ* site is provided by Picasa Top Contributors to help users with Google Photos, Picasa3 and Album Archives (the retired Picasa Web Albums website).

On February 12, 2016, Google announced retirement plans of Picasa3 and Picasa Web Albums in their "Moving on from Picasa" blog and stated, "As of March 15, 2016, we will no longer be supporting the Picasa desktop application" and removed the Picasa installation file shortly thereafter from their help center. See also Moving on from Picasa: "We’ve decided to retire Picasa in order to focus on a single photo service in Google Photos – a new, smarter photo app that works seamlessly across mobile and the web."

What that means for users of Picasa and Picasa Web Albums can be found at the following links.
