Picasa photo editing software

Wed May 09, 2018 11:04 am

Hi,

My computer was hacked about a month ago and all my programs were uninstalled, including my basic freeware program for photo editing, Picasa. All programs are now reinstalled, but when I went to reinstall Picasa, I found that it had been "deleted" by Google (and the new Google software has no 'tools' and is totally useless). Is there any safe way I can download Picasa (from a safe source) so that I can continue to use it (for quick/basic publicity photography)? I understand Picasa/Google will not 'support' it anymore (send patches or updates), but when I googled "Picasa", there were hundreds of links (and their related drivers) by which I could download it. However, I don't want to download it from an un-safe site, since I don't want to infect my computer with viruses or malware again. It's like reinstalling Windows 8.1 (instead of 10): Picasa still exists but Google wants everyone to go to their new photo software site, which is useless for me. How do I get my Picasa back? If not possible, is there any freeware that's comparable that I can use?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I have found this:

https://picasa.en.uptodown.com/windows/download

I don't know how reputable that site is. Make sure you check your download before installing. But I know what you are talking about in regards to Picasa...

i think you'd like GIMP as alternative to Picasa.

I still use Picasa, and still have an install file somewhere on my computer. Hopefully I don't forget, and will post it here soon, after I'm back home :-)

I get what you're saying, I love the program strictly for organizing my photos. The "star" feature to mark photos is great.
