The Google Picasa is a great photo organizer with good editing capability. It has a good set of creative tools to make slide-shows, movies, collages, etc. It also integrates seamlessly with Google’s Picasa Web Albums so you can share your photos online.  The Windows and Linux version have been out there for a while. Google finally released a Mac version. I am not a Mac user so I cannot test it out. However you will find an official Youtube video below and a CNET blogger’s hands-on experience with Picasa for Mac.

I use Picasa on Windows PC to browse through my collection of thousands of photos in NEF Raw format. Other browsers such as the Nikon ViewNX struggles to load a small folder, while Picasa will let me zip through the photos effortlessly by date or by folder. I hope the Mac version performs as fast as the Windows version.
