When Google bought Picasa, I suggested that they may intend to release the photo management software for free. They have.

But is it any good? I'm sure Google thinks so, but what do you think?

I use Picasa on a regular basis. And I've set my father in law up with it so he can more easily manage his photos.

I think that for the average user Picasa is a great tool. It is easy to use, it works, and has the basic elements needed to edit pictures. It also has some added functionality for the more savvy photo editor. It isn't photoshop, however most people who take pictures don't require that much functionality.
