Using the new Edit button, now one can edit a photo in Picasa, and either save it or add as a new photo to the same album (so that you don’t overwrite the old one). Picnik offers various photo editing and enhancing tools.
There is a redesign in Flickr, Yahoo! ‘s photo sharing site.
A. Zooming becomes easier
B. More pictures previewed from the same set
C. Actions Menu
D. More Info about the picture
E. Comments and Favorites merged together
While Flickr is concentrating only on the web interface, Google focuses on Picasa uploader.
Picasa web interface needs lots of improvement.
1. It can get a better UI for the Comments.
2. Previews can be provided for next and previous photos in the album.
3. More importantly, there is no information about the user, except for the name.
4. Picnik can be integrated for editing.
I had previously posted that why dont Orkut photo albums integrate with Picasa?
Now I see Picasa photo albums can be directly imported to Orkut, and I don’t need to upload my photos again in Orkut.
|Orkut integrates Picasa albums|
Thank you, Google !
update: Orkut integrates Picasa web albums
In how many websites do you upload the photos, and have redundant data in the web?
I hate uploading the same photos which I already added to my Picasa album, again to Facebook / Orkut, just for sharing with my friends.
Facebook has a very good solution for this. Fotofan app can directly bring my Picasa albums to my Facebook profile, with a separate tab called Picasa tab. In addition to this, updates will be posted to my wall automatically whenever I add photos to Picasa.
Orkut and Picasa being Google’s own products, Orkut doesn’t have a similar feature. Orkut apps are not even comparable to Facebook apps. Long way to go for Orkut applications.
But Google has merged photos uploaded to Blogger blogs, to Picasa albums. The blogger buzz post asks “Ever wanted to see all the photos you’ve uploaded to your blog in one place?” and the Blogger photos are integrated in Picasa, I am wondering why Orkut albums cant fit with Picasa? If Orkut albums integrate with Picasa, even the photo comments can be synced between Orkut and Picasa albums. Let us wait if it can ever happen.
