Once this free software is downloaded, Picasa 3 automatically locates all pictures on your computer and sorts them into visual albums organized by date, with folder names easily recognizable. Picasa 3 allows you to drag and drop photos to arrange them into these albums. Picasa 3 also has a built-in screensaver feature for displaying photos. Moreover Picasa 3 makes advanced editing simple with one-click fixes and powerful effects.
In the classroom, photos can be organized as well as photo CD for each student can be created. Another interesting feature is that Web Albums can be created for students to access from home.
