Special Effects Add Originality to Your Pages and Posts
Picasa is free photo and video editing software. The Special Effects tools offer photo fixes and artistic effects. For example you can lighten dark photos, change a photo into a poster style, add a museum frame, round the edges, add drop shadows, or make a photo look like a pencil sketch.
Photo editing and special effects can be useful when you use Picasa to design a header or logo. Changing the shape of a photo from square to oval is one way to make it catch the eye. Correcting red eye or crooked photos can make a photo useful that would otherwise need to be deleted.
There are other more complex photo editing programs but for a variety of needs Picasa can serve well. In addition to special effects photo editing Picasa also has the ability to create slideshows, movies and collages from photos.
