One little white flower, many options

Picasa2 has some pretty fun buttons to play with. Today is one of those days when I feel like cropping photos.

But I don’t know why I can’t watermark my photos using Picasa2. Or have I missed the function?


Another thing is – the smallest size I get on Picasa2 is 4 x7 inches photos which I think is 800 pixels? I usually like to resize my photos to 500 pixels for the web.


Lovely golden sheen on the petals. Finer things like these usually can’t be seen with my eyes! Because I have mono-vision 🙂 (some adjustment made by the optometrist to enable me to read and see without needing glasses but wearing contact lenses). Therefore, I am glad for super enlargement photos!


Another heavily modified photo using Picasa2.

In my opinion, good photos should be photoshopped. But heck, it is fun to press the saturate button to see a sharper and more colourful photo. Sepia button gives the antique feel. (Although I can set the sepia tone on my camera.) Soft focus takes the wrinkles and open pores away. 🙂 The possibility is endless.

Therefore, if you like to meddle with digital photos, do download Picasa now.

    for Picasa2, you can export the photo in various sizes, by using the scale option. they have some “default” sizes, however you can always type in “500” in the pixels box, then export it to a folder. the longest length of your picture (width for landscape, height for portrait) will measure 500 pixels.

    no, you didn’t miss the function… picasa2 doesn’t have the watermark function. 🙁 can’t add any text, for that matter. the only thing I don’t like about it. otherwise, it’s a pretty neat tool 😉

    Thanks for the tip! I rarely play with my pixs, will do that. LOVE the white flowers and your pix taking!

    I had fun with Picasa. Thanks, Lilian. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager & Canon ArcSoft PhotoImpression 4 for photo editing quite extensively. Since I couldn’t add text in Picasa, I still have to rely on PhotoImpression 4 for the job.
