[Software] Picasa 2

I have been using Adobe Photo Album for a few months. While its tagging is superb in organizing photos, the program tries hard to hide the concept of files and directories from users. As a result my photos are now all over the place because Adobe Photo Album automatically copies files to different destinations based on import method, and I import photos using card reader, digital camera, and ActiveSync.

I had tried Picasa 1.0 before and found it limited. Tonight I finally downloaded Picasa 2.0 and realized it's much improved than its predecessor. It offers a nice UI and flexibility to organize photos based on directories plus tags. I think I am ditching Adobe Photo Album for Picasa. Hey, it's free!
