Top 4 alternatives to use

About eight months ago, Google launched a photo and video storage and storage service known as Google Photos. It quickly gained popularity and was hailed as one of the best services of its kind. Since its initial launch, Google Photos had been closely compared to Google’s pre-existing photo storage and editing service, Google Picasa. Questions were raised about the future of Picasa, as Google photos offer a very similar service and rumors continue to float over the end of Picasa. Surely, on Friday, February 12, 2016, Google published an official statement that made it clear that Picasa would soon retire to fully focus on Google Photos.

Support for the Picasa desktop application will stop on March 15, and the rest of the changes are will be implemented on May 1st . While some have seen it coming, now there will be many who are looking for an alternative to move from Picasa. But before going into something else, let's first tell you a little about Google Photos, as it is the default alternative provided by Google.

Google photos is a cloud storage service very similar to Picasa. It offers you unlimited storage space for high quality photos and videos and also works as a decent photo editor. You can also download the version of the service application on your desktop or smart phone, allowing you to easily back up photos. The backup part is simple, all you need is a Google account for it. With the desktop application, you can assign specific parameters to allow automatic backup from specific devices and folders.

As for those who are looking for something more than Google Photos, here we are going to list some alternatives to sufficiently quench their thirst for Picasa.

1. Windows photo gallery

Windows Photo Gallery is an application that will make you feel at home. It has one of the simplest and easiest-to-use designs you'll find in any photo editing application. It does not offer you the storage solution that Picasa offers, but it works well if you are looking to manage all the images on your desktop.

Its photo editing functions are quite decent, and allows you to easily upload them to OneDrive, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Vimeo. In addition to the basic edition, you can also add subtitles, make collages, slide shows, panoramas, photos and movies. A feature that makes it stand out is its ability to save the names of tagged people and the information of geotags directly in the metadata of the file.

2. Photoscape

Using Photoscape can be a fun experience, whether to edit, improve or create something special. It has a wide range of features that include basic editing and correction, batch editing, creating collages, creating gifs with multiple photos, screenshot and splitting photos, among other things.

It does not offer the same cloud storage as Picasa, but it is one of the most versatile photo editing applications that exist. It is a photo editing application to the earth more than anything.
