Picasa for Macs in Beta

One thing I missed about moving from PC's to Macs is Picasa. Your pictures reside both on your computer and as part of a web album. It was announced at MacWorld that Picasa is available for Macs! YEAH!
"Picasa borrowed a lot from Mac's elegance and simplicity, but it was only available for Windows (and emulated in Linux). Mac users can now finally install a native version of Picasa from and enjoy one of the most easier to use software for photo management." Here is an introductory video.

Picasa for Mac integrates seamlessly with Picasa Web Albums, Google's free photo-sharing site, which offers features like tagging. It includes:

* A drag-and-drop photo collage tool that gives users control over layout and content
* A retouching brush to wipe out scratches and blemishes - and repair old photos
* A slideshow movie maker that uploads users photo montage videos to YouTube with a click
* Smart auto-cropping that guides users on how to zoom in on their subject
* And, auto red-eye removal.
Note-System Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.4+
  • Intel CPU
  • 256MB RAM
  • 100MB available hard disk space
I think you will enjoy all Picasa's sharing attributes!
