Picasa Then and Now
Picasa is 20 years old
How Picasa looked like and how it is now:
Picasa is a discontinued, cross-platform image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing digital photos, integrated with a now defunct photo-sharing website, originally created by a company named Lifescape (which at that time was incubated by Idealab) in 2002. “Picasa” is a blend of the name of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, the phrase mi casa (Spanish for “my house”) and “pic” for pictures.
Native applications for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OS X (Intel only) were available, and for Linux, the Windows version was bundled with Wine. An iPhoto plugin and a standalone program for uploading photos were available for Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
