Thanks to Chris G for letting me know that Google has just released Picasa 2, a new version of their photo editing tool that they acquired last year. It’s really worth the download – it has a superb auto-adjust mode called ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ which can instantly fix bad photos, like the one above which was taken using the flash in a very smoky environment. It’s also good for managing photos, such as categorising and tagging them. My father would really like this.
(It’s Windows-only, I’m afraid)
