Google's Picasa to Shut Down

Picasa, the Mountain View tech company that was seen as a poor man's Photoshop officially announced that they are no longer getting support from Google. The company will shut down the popular video and photo editing software and advises that everyone turns their attention toward the Google Photo Application.

For many people, Picasa has been an excellent tool. Alphabet Inc., formerly known as Google, is moving forward with their new software and will no longer work with the application. For those who are using Picasa for photo and video editing, they may continue, but they may start to notice a decline in functioning.

For anyone who has been paying attention, the writing was on the wall for fans. The company has invested a lot in the Google Photo Application. If you'd like to download that, it is currently available on Windows and all major mobile platforms.

There won't be any updates or patches from Google for Picasa. However, they do know that people really relied on the service so they are finding a way to make the photos from Picasa transferrable to the Google Photo Application.

Although Google’s newest and shiny application is by far more powerful than Picasa, users are still reluctant to make the passage mainly because most of them found in the software an easy way to the art of photo editing, according to Modern Readers. It was for people who maybe didn't want to make a career of editing, but liked to have their pictures look their best.

Those people will surely miss the lightweight, convenient, and easy to use program.

It is going to be tough, but Google promises that the new program is just as user friendly. They are working to make everything painless as well with the conversion changes.
