Having Fun with Effects in Picasa!

Some times I like to play and see how many ways I can alter a photo. All just for fun of course! Here I took one of the sunflower photos from a couple of days ago and ran it through various permutations in Picasa and ended up with the following results:

For those who don't know, Picasa is a completely free and very basic photo editor that you can download from the Picasa Webpage. It is simple, fast, easy to use and will take care of most of your snaps from your holiday, birthday party or romantic weekend away. It is far too limited for "pro" work, but when I just want to get through stuff for Facebook or email fast, then Picasa is where I go.

The photo at top left is the original, the rest were achieved via standard pre-sets or combo's of the same. If you right click and open the montage above in a new tab then you can see it in higher resolution.

Now go have fun. Go! Go now! You know you want to!


  1. Looks interesting! Thanks for the information.

  2. Picasa is indeed a lovely online application to help us organize our photo's well.
    Waiting for newer version of Picassa soon..I love this application.I like Picasa because it is a very Simple/Easy Tool for Image Organization,Viewing,Editing&Photo-Sharing etc.,
