  • Wikipedia defines Picasa as:an image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing digital photos, plus an integrated photo-sharingwebsite, originally created by a company named Lifescape[2] (which at that time may have resided at Idealab) in 2002 and owned by Google since 2004.[3] "Picasa" is a blend of the name of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, the phrase mi casa for "my house", and "pic" for pictures (personalized art).[3][4] In July 2004, Google acquired Picasa and began offering it as a free download.[3]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picasa


  • A Google search for “Get started with Picasa web albums” returned about 960,000,000 results (0.27 seconds) that’s a little overwhelming, but gives you an idea of what’s available. The same search on YouTube returned about 2,830 results(http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Get+started+with+picasa+web+albums&aq=f)
