No, Google, I don't want to back up my photos to Google+.

I also don't want to download and install the same !@#$ software for each user account on my machines when it's already on the machine for the administrator account.

I would however, like to scroll upwards when grabbing a bunch of photos for export.

Please, stop worrying about tying my photos to Google+ and fix the software so that it works well.

Searching for updates still doesn't work for me. I prefer this to iPhoto, because I could leave the pictures and videos in their folders.

Every one has to the right to like a certain app. and dislike others. The basic philosophy of both iPhoto and iTunes is that they work with libraries and copies of the original files, not directly with the original. Also the original is always available, if something fails to be as expected. I have the feeling you did not understand why it is ALWAYS better to work with copies, not directly with the originals, which should be kept untouched if need be.

Apparently, the latest release is about Google+ Auto Backup, similar to what Dropbox does. Google seems to be looking for every way to push people to use Google+, even passively.

Picasa itself doesn't seem to have changed. It still needs work, and even if it is a WINE-adapted application, it could go much further toward being an efficient design and work more like a native application on any platform. Still, it works.

Here's Google, eating your data and privacy like pacman. But hey, the app is free, right?

I decided to try Picasa, but when launched it insisted on searching for images on my Mac. The only options were to search Documents, Pictures, Desktop, and iPhoto Library OR my entire computer, assumedly including all attached drives.

No thank you Google, I will decide what pictures I want in which app not you.

I had the same problem but you can go to the folder options and select or deselect the folders to be scanned. I turned off all of them to give a try. At least I was able to try before deleting the app.

and once you sign up for Picasa you can never delete your Picasa account on google unless you delete your entire account -- email, everything. how lame is that?

I'm going to take a wild guess that it's not only searching your Mac for images, but also for every other bit of data they can stea... index.

Since they can't be bothered to tell us what is new in this version I don't feel like being bothered to download it. I did go to the Picasa site to see if I could find what had changed and found the following link:-

For a list of the cool new stuff in Picasa 3.9, check out the Picasa 3.9 release notes.

When I clicked on this it took me to a page where it said:-

We're sorry, but the information you've requested cannot be found. Please try searching or browsing the Help Center.

How very helpful!!

It's a pet project. They already discontinued the Linux version. I use Picasa because I use the corresponding web sites, but the software needs re-working in many areas that relate to the scrolling mechanism. The update system always says that something went wrong with checking for updates.

Great that it is free and can do a lot with it but it's just not clean enough. Interface looks clumsy and the process to actually do some of the most simple things can be ridiculously convoluted. I'm sure you would get used to it after a while, but at the moment, it's just not a viable alternative to iPhoto.

I tried it and I don't like it. It is too difficult and cumbersome. Although it is free it is just not worth the effort.

I keep trying this to see if it gets any better. It doesn't. In fact, other than Microsoft Word 6, this may be the worst software I have ever used. 1 star because it's free.

This latest release has a new problem for me.

Every time I open it, it wants to import from my phone, which is normally not connected.

I can cancel/close the tab but it's there on every launch. I have yet to find a solution.

When I start using this app, it uses %90 of my cpu. Is there anybody sharing the same issue?

I just downloaded it manually since the auto update doesn't work.

When I started it, it immediately started "Scanning Faces", went to about 5 % progress (and 100 % CPU) then, back to 0 % progress. In less than a minute it's over 45 % of the way finished.

I'm not sure why the last scan on 3.6.7 was no good or if it's going to do a scan each time I launch the application, but it's not a good way to start. I can't find a preference to disable it on startup.

It finished and I have Unnamed (235) listed under People and CPU usage is at 2 %.

This thing does not work behind a proxy. Every other application on my Mac respects the system proxy settings and works without any issue. This issue has been logged months ago and Google support guys does not respond. Look at this page:- http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Picasa/thread?tid=5003e400838a8028&hl=en

I don't think the auto updates will work since they are not asking for administrative privileges before attempting to run the process.
