Google has released the beta version of Picasa 3, which made sharing so simple you don’t even have to lift a finger. A new ‘sync to web’ button allows you to sync specified albums on your PC to the web. If you edit or add photos to the album on your PC, those changes will be automatically reflected on Picasa Web Albums. You can even specify who you’d like to share your web albums with from the Picasa software itself.
Google has added many new features, there’s a slew of powerful new editing tools to retouch and restore photos, automatically detect and fix red-eye, or attractively add text to your images. Plus, there’s plenty of the fun stuff — completely overhauled things like photo collages and slideshows, giving you more creative freedom over composition and layout. Not to mention a brand-new movie maker that can blend photos, video, webcam capture, and music to create customized movies that you can easily share on YouTube.
In addition, Google has also added “name tags” to Picasa.
