One of our favorite photo editors is the free Picasa program from Google. This was just upgraded to version 3 (still free) and has some impressive new features.

First of these is automatic updating: When you add a new photo to your computer, it is also added to your online Picasa photo album. A new feature of this album is that it lets you string photos and videos together to create a video and add music for a full presentation. This can be shared online or posted to YouTube with a single click.

A name tag feature lets you group photos together by the name of a person  in those pictures.

A new “explore” section lets you look at photos posted by other users and you can play a “Where in the world” game in which you try to guess the locale.
