Goodbye Picasa – Hello Google Photos

Google have announced that Picasa there photo editing and storage platform will cease support from the 15th March.

If you want to continue using it that is fine HOWEVER it is obvious they want you to go to Google Photos 

However, for those of you who don’t want to use Google Photos or who still want to be able to view specific content, such as tags, captions or comments, we will be creating a new place for you to access your Picasa Web Albums data. That way, you will still be able to view, download, or delete your Picasa Web Albums, you just won’t be able to create, organize or edit albums (you would now do this in Google Photos). 

One thing to make clear is that none of this is happening today—if you have a Picasa Web Album you can keep using it as normal. We’ll start rolling out these changes on May 1, 2016

Google Photos works very well and is a great platform for your photos across all devices and platforms.

This means it works with :

  • Windows Computers
  • Apple Computers
  • Android Smartphone and tablets 
  • Apple smartphone and tablets
