An official Picasa app for Windows 8 user is already long overdue, but still missing in the Windows Store. Luckily, there’s one app that is a great replacement – Picasa HD. And now it has received some new features.
While you can still use the desktop version of Picasa in Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 and have no issues, whatsoever, it’s not that great to be used on a Windows 8 tablet. But stay assured as there is a worthy Picasa app in the Windows Store, under the name of Picasa HD. A number of new features has been put in place by the developer.
Browse and view your Picasa albums and photos with Picasa HD. This little app helps you to make beautiful slideshows and gives detailed information about your pictures. Picasa HD will present your photos in High Resolution. You are able to create, edit, delete albums and sort them by name or date. Sharing photos or complete albums is also possible as well as searching among your pictures.
With Picasa HD you will be able to display images to fill your entire screen. This way those ugly black edges will be eliminated. You can use the pinch-to-zoom gesture or zoom buttons to get more detailed view. Free version is ad-supported. By purchasing the ad-free version you kindly support our work – for the price of a cup of coffee.
Here’s what’s new in the app, according to the release note made available in the Windows Store:
- Assign or edit geo-location information for photos
- Displaying Album Map (for geotagged photos)
- Location view for photos on the Properties panel
- Supports Large Tile on Start screen
- Bug fixes
