Do you still remember the number of photos you took when your first child was born? I guess you must have, like me, spent a lot of money on rolls and rolls of film. With the excitement of being a first time parents, we just can't stop shooting the little cutie. And with the invention of digital camera, we don't even have to worry about the cost now. We just press the shuttle and capture the beautiful moments. Yesterday, my wife just proudly showed me a 'masterpiece photo' (she claimed) of our baby....;-)

With tons of photos sitting inside the computer, I believe you probably have the same problem like me in organizing them. I have used a f'ree software by Google called Picasa to organize all my photos. Picasa is a photo searching, editing and sharing application that helps you organize all of your pictures.

What I like most about Picasa is that it automatically finds all of the photos stored on your computer and places them in albums organized by date immediately after you install the software. It is that powerful! Not to mention that Picasa also makes beautiful slide shows with only one click. Well, there are many other great features that you got to download to try out yourself. Anyway, it is f'ree. You can click here to download. I hope you have a great week. Take care!
