Google was talking up the fact that Picassa is now available in 25 languages. And if you speak Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Tagalog, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Catalan, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, or Vietnamese I’m truly very happy for you.
But when oh when is Picassa going to have an online equivalent. As much as I love Flickr, I struggle to keep it up-to-date because it’s another step in my photo filing process, which I already consider laborious.
What I want is to download my files into Picassa (preferably with some intelligent tagging) and then have the software automatically start uploading the files into the online version. ideally, online/offline should then stay synched.
That’s something I’d definitely pay for so it represents a way for Google to actually monetise its Picassa investment, as well. Quite frankly, I’m staggered this hasn’t happened already.
