Get prettier photos with Picasa photo editor

21 Mar

Picasa is one photo editing software that I cannot do without. All my cameras and laptops come with their own licensed photo editing softwares but none of them perform like Picasa. I am an advocate of licensed softwares because people work very hard to get the thing and it is only right we pay for them, right?

Now, Picasa is free, downloadable from Google. It organises all your photos and you can do photo editing with simple steps. If you like you can also put an affiliate link and you get paid USD1 or USD2 when someone download Picasa from your site. (Only applicable to US downloads)

Yet, I see many bloggers are putting up less than flattering photos of themselves online. Why don’t they just edit it a bit to remove those pimples, wrinkles and such? Not that I am vain or anything but really, those images tend to stick to people’s mind and I like to put my best sides forward all the time, if I can help it.


Here is a screenshot from Picasa. You just need to do a one click thing and you can have your photos in any style. I normally like to use the soft focus to hide those flaws on my skin. You see the below photo? I took some silly shots with my toddler last night. Our Pentax M20 tends to give a too reddish photo and I hate it because my facial skin looks horribly, horribly shiny and red. It is made worse when I am put next to a flawless four years old facial skin.


So, I cheated by making soft focus for my part of the photo, leave my toddler’s cheeky grin and there you have it. A nice shot, made possible by Picasa magical buttons. Oh ya, I also discovered our face looks different when we are lying down than when we are sitting up. Another tip for people with ageing facial expression like me. Hahaha, from now on, I will lie down and get my mugshots taken!
