Google stops its support for the Picasa image app in order to focus on the other better ventures. Google wants to end its assistance for the famous Picasa picture service and take customers to the newer Google Photos, as the company declared these days.
Picasa, a photo-organizing program that the search giant acquired more than a decade ago, has received few up-dates recently since the company targeted the development initiatives on its recent Google Photos application
Its support for Picasa’s PC album capabilities will end in a couple of months, even if it will work for people who already set it up on their computers. Submitted Picasa images will be moved to the new
Google Photos platform a few days after that.
Originally created by Lifescape more than 13 years ago, Picasa introduced iPhoto-like modifying ease to informal photography lovers on Windows desktops. The search engine enhanced the system with its signature “I’m Feeling Lucky” option, which instantly retouched pictures with just one click.
The company also included the Web Albums features a decade ago, which was incorporated with the PC application and permitted its clients to share images with their loved ones. The Web Albums function was stopped in 2013 since it was built into Google+.
The officials at Google Photos admitted that many customers have uploaded their precious family images to Picasa. They were quoted saying that people will notice all the pictures they have submitted to the Web Albums awaiting them in the recent Google Photos app.
The customers with Picasa may still its options, but it will not have further upgrades to the application. Also, people might not be capable to add images to their albums on the Internet. Before the upgrades are ceased for Picasa, all members are recommended to download the pictures that are stored on the Web Service platform or remove them accordingly.
The company will take the necessary time to do everything right and offer its clients all options needed and easy methods to access their content, the representatives have written in the website statement.
Even though it has been launched in 2014, Google Photos was able to quickly gather a legion of happy members. In Oct, the service stated that it had over 100 million users per month customers. In their evaluation, some tech specialists recognized the merits of this platform, which they discovered to be a clean, simple and attractive app, with previews of all photos arranged by date.
However, its sharing features are limited; for example, people cannot e-mail images, so customers who depend on this in Picasa and its Web Albums could be annoyed by these restrictions.
