Picasa is an image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing
digital photos, plus an integrated photo-sharing viewer originally created by a
company named Lifescape (which at that time may have resided at Idealab) in
2002 and owned by Google since 2004. "Picasa" is a blend of the name of
Spanish painter Pablo Piccaso, the phrase mi casa (Spanish for "my house") and
"pic" for pictures (personalized art). In July 2004, Google acquired Picasa from its
original author and began offering it as freeware.
Native applications for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac
OS X (Intel only) are available from Google. For Linux, Google has bundled Wine
with the Windows version to create an installation package rather than write a
native Linux version, but this version is severely out of date (the latest Windows
version, however, can be run with Wine; see the Linux section). There is also an
iPhoto plugin or a standalone program for uploading photos available for Mac OS
X 10.4 and later.
