Picasa (I may be a bit obsessed)

I love taking photographs.  I also love greeting cards.  Some of my favorite greeting cards involve quotes that speak to me in some way superimposed over a photograph.  I've always wanted to do something like that myself, but I never wanted to spend money on photo editing software.

Enter Picasa, a Google tool.  Wow, is it ever amazing!  Now I'm probably a bit late to the game -- maybe Picasa is sooooo 2010 -- but that's okay.  I'm having fun.  I downloaded the program from Google about a week ago and have learned two things:

  1. It immediately organizes all photos/images on the computer into handy files.  Nice!
  2. If you are easily distracted, like me, you will spend hours messing around to see what you can do to your photos.
I don't know much more about Picasa.  Like I said, I've only had it a short time.  But last night and tonight I was inspired to create a few card templates using some old photographs that Honey and I took on a few of our trips.  I may print these later in the week to see how they turn out and then see about making greeting cards, but for now it's just fun to play around and I wanted to share.
