How To Install Picasa Advanced Picture Manager In Ubuntu

Picasa is more than a picture manager actually. It has been there for a long time now. Although before telling you how to install it in GNU Linux, may I suggest another totally/truly free image organizer called Shotwell. Anything that Picasa can do, can be achieved using Shotwell as well. But still if you're interested in Picasa, then read on.

Main Features...

*. Web album management - You can easily view and upload images to online image uploading sites.

*. Edit, Zoom ... change brightness, Crop pictures, etc (Picasa seems to give slightly better zoomed pictures as well).

*. Organize pictures in your HDD.

*. Easily create video picture albums.

*. Tag photos with places.

*. Printing support.

*. Enhance pictures.

*. Share your photos with friends over the web with ease...

So to install Picasa in Ubuntu, open your terminal and issue the below commands.


Now follow with this command.

sudo dpkg -i picasa_3.0-current_i386.deb

Once the installing is complete, you should be able to run it via "Applications" -> "Graphics" -> "Picasa".
