Picasa team has launched the beta version of Picasa 3 with a lot of new goodies. To start the speed has been increased, it works really fast with thousands of photos. secondly, forget the windows picture and fax viewer cause Picasa includes Photo Viewer. the photo editing feature has been improved enormously. Movies has just got better-you can now “trim” any movie as you’re watching it, or rotate it just like a photo, capture stills, scrub through time, and play movies fullscreen or as part of a slideshow — movies are even zoomable. Faster uploads cause Picasa 3 compresses the movie to make it transfer faster.

The whole list of features can be found here.

You can download Picasa 3 here.

Now you can add photos to Picasa web album by simply emailing them.

Go to Settings page and check "Allow me to upload photos by email." You get an email address with the following format: username.secretkey@picasaweb.com.

By default, Picasa Web uploads your photos to the built-in Drop Box albums, but it’s a good idea to choose your destination by entering the name of an existing album in the subject of your email. You can attach up to 20MB of photos in JPG, GIF and PNG formats. Since Picasa Web’s mobile site still doesn’t support uploading photos, the new option should be really useful when you want to share photos from a phone with email or MMS capabilities.

This time lets look at storing stuff online in a different way which will give you more command over your files as with whom you should share it.

In this article the files we are dealing with are pictures and documents. (the files we share the most)

Instead of storing files in your PC and syncing it to other computer that you use, it is better to upload them to the Internet, which makes it accessible on any computer and not just the PCs on which you’ve synced them.


Two most prominent sites for uploading pics are Flickr and Picasa.


In Picasa you can store pics in albums, but unfortunately picasa gives only 1 GB free space. Google should transfer some GBs from Gmail to picasa.


Flickr offers unlimited free space but doesn’t have albums but flickr has sets which does the job of organizing pictures wonderfully.

Sharing pictures is also dead simple with both the service.

next comes Documents

First thing that comes to my mind is Google Docs, store as much documents as you want (though they have file size limit), label them, put them in folders and the goodness of Google Search. Sharing is very simple – you just have to invite with an e-mail id. No more messy e-mail attachments.


By above solutions, both pictures and documents can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world provided you have an Internet connection. No software needed. The browser is all that is needed.

So what do you think ?
