Get Google Picasa for Mac! Free!

I guess, when people blog about Google, their posts get outdated pretty fast. It seems like it was yesterday when I talked about a method to back-up photos on picasa web online, through additional utilities.

But now, there's no need to get any additional programs, software or even browsers, because Google offers Picasa for Mac. It's possible to do almost anything that you need through Picasa for Mac, which is the same as Picasa for Windows (for the most part.)

I think this is a great tool to help you organise your pictures and upload them directely to the web. Of course, iPhoto can also do the same, but you'll have to pay the price of an added .Mac account (which is about $100 dollars a year) or resort to using additional freeware utilities, that might not integrate as well.

Nevertheless, it's good to see that Google is doing something for the Mac side, as well as the Linux side with their applications. I only hope to see many more applications like this from other companies.
