For reasons that do not depend on Softonic, you will be redirected to download Picasa on the author's website.
When it comes to photo viewers there are many alternatives to choose from. Picasa has always been a favorite here at Softonic, and the latest version makes it our absolute top choice.
What's new in Picasa 3
The latest version of Picasa includes sharing on Google+, including sharing of name tags. You'll enjoy the range of new effects that have been added, allowing you to quickly make stylish changes to your photos. Side by side editing means you can keep an original copy of your photo for reference while you're experimenting with effects and levels.
What's inside Picasa
Google Picasa features enriching options to manage, edit, and show off your photos in an even more comfortable way, both offline and online – thanks to the Picasa Web Album syncing tool.
It includes Picasa Photo Viewer, which you can configure to replace the original Windows default image viewer. It offers more tools and displays photos on a much nicer interface when viewing them directly in Windows Explorer, so when Picasa asks you if you want to use it, don't hesitate!
How Picasa works
Picasa displays all your indexed photos in a handy folder structure. You can let the program scan the whole drive in search for pictures or select specific directories. A double click on any image will display it in full screen and let you access to a handful of basic editing tools: cropping, straightening, adjusting color and light or fixing red eye, among others.
The possibilities are endless
But Picasa is not only about viewing and fixing images. You can also give free rein to your imagination with its tools to create posters, collages, screensavers and even movies. The greatest thing about these tools is not only the fact that they give you the ability to create something unique and original with your photos; it's also that they're surprisingly easy to use, and don't require any tech abilities or photo editing skills at all.
The all-new Picasa has successfully completed what seemed a difficult task: improving a software app that was already very good.

Picasa is fine, but this site loads Ask.com which you don't want. I'll make sure never to use it again!
They seriously need one more level of folders I have a bazillion folders!!!! Everyone says it needs at least 1 more subfolder, but Picasa is being ignorant about it. it automatically organizes folders by DATE in the web albums. You are FORCED to organize pictures by date which totally sucks the only level picasa has is MAIN level and ONLY one folder deep. I'm sure its because of the generic tendencies of Google. I only use it for the web album witch is better if you don't have Google+ attached to it.
