Picasa is updating
In the meantime wireless home networks became more robust, so instead of redundant chaos, the next best option was maintaining once central Picasa home-base, and accessing it from other computers via the network.This could quite easily be done by mapping the main computer’s drive as a network drive, say P: (for Photos or Picasa), setting Picasa on all the satellite computers to forget the local Pictures folders and only scan the new P: drive.Since the launch of Google Photos, we’ve had a lot of questions around what this means for the future of Picasa.After much thought and consideration, we’ve decided to retire Picasa over the coming months in order to focus entirely on a single photo service in Google Photos.We have an evidence that some people are actively searching for an alternative: So, if you want to not just keep your photos in a safe place but to publish them across the web, it’s time to go beyond the basic photo services and take advantage of something much more powerful.With Cincopa’s huge collection of pre-designed skins, it’s easy to turn a few of your photos into a stunning image gallery or slideshow with custom design that works perfectly on every type of device.
This document describes version of the plugin from 20141120.58 (released on or after Nov 20th, 2014).
The plugin matches up image data via image filename and path, so both Picasa and Lightroom must be working with the exact same image files (and not, for example, merely identical copies).
If you make changes in the list of faces for an image in Picasa, simply re-invoke the face-data import in Lightroom to read the new data.
In such a situation, it’s wise to move your photos with Cincopa.
Not only can Picasa users rely on our solution for hosting photos safely but also they will be able to manage and publish professionally-looking image galleries to any website with fully custom design.
