Picasa for Mac Status Update, Version 3.0.4 Available for Download

Earlier this year Google put out a Beta version of their popular photo management software application, Picasa for Mac Beta. The software was a long time coming since Windows users have been getting it for free and enjoying its functionality since way back. Since then the development team behind this application has been hard at work, fixing bugs and enhancing features. As a matter of tact, Picasa for Mac version 3.0.4 which has just recently been made available for public download, fixes more than 200 issues within the software.

Product Marketing Manager, Jason Cook comments: “While our immediate attention has been focused on squashing crashers and other obnoxious bugs, we're also trying to make sure that the refinements Mac users have asked us for are addressed, as well. For example, proper color profiles are now present in our latest build, which allow you to view your photographs with any embedded color information added to the photo -- giving you more accuracy as you edit and fine-tune your images, so you can show off your snapshots at their very best. In addition, a few of the features that were deactivated in our earliest beta builds, like 3rd-party prints and exporting as HTML, are now available, and a few minor UI niggles like text-spacing are fixed as well.”


Here are the new bits and pieces that have been added to Picasa 3.0.4 for Mac:
- “Export as HTML” feature added.
- “Shop” button added so that you can now purchase prints from various print providers.
- Color profiles have been tweaked so they align with other viewing apps.
- Network drives photo deleting gained support.
- Scanning and display capability for files/folders with “/”
- Video playback and moviemaker enhanced stability.
- Correctly playing ability on YouTube for any movie you created via Picasa.

According to Jason Cook, Picasa for Mac will eventually be taken out of Beta, but you should not take Picasa for Windows as a viable comparison benchmark. It took Google approximately 2 months to release a final version of Picasa for Windows; the development process will last a bit longer with the Mac OS X version since the goal is to get it to be just as stable and provide just as much functionality as the PC version.
