Post-Picasa

I really really miss the photo management software, Picasa……

It has been more than a year since it stopped updating…  I have been trying very hard to find a replacement but I failed.  Users can actually continue to use the downloaded copy in their pc.  Unfortunately, earlier this year, we changed to a newer computer, which came with a new version of Windows.  So I bade a sad farewell to my favourite software programme.

Since then, photos have been ‘piling’ up, waiting to be organised and collated…  >o<

During my USA vacation, I had time to do some reflections on myself and my daily life.  I felt that I have been procrastinating quite a number of things…  and the management of these digital records is one of them.

So after coming back, I sat down in front of the computer and set to work.  Suddenly there seems to be a lot more options than before and I found myself more willing to download trial copies and test each out.  Right now, I think I have found three different softwares that, when used together, can carry out most of the functions of Picasa’s.

I am glad that I tried once again.

What!… Picasa is Dying!

Collating Photos

….  when I am unhappy, two activities will usually cheer me up… Shopping and tidying things up.  There is not much shopping to do here and so I decided to clear things up.  Since I have not organised the photos we took when Ila was here, they had become my targets for reorganisation.  I made a photo album a bit different from the ones I made before.  So here they are!
