Google releases Picasa for Linux

Free download of software that allows basic editing, sharing, organizing of photographs.

Google has just released a Linux version of Picasa, its free to download photo software, via Google Labs. Picasa offers basic editing, sharing, organizing and publishing of photos. Google acquired the photo management company in 2004.

Google has made three different package managers for Linux download: Red Hat/Fedora/Suse/Mandriva x86; Debian/Ubuntu x86; and a self-extracting installer for any x86 Linux distribution. Google says that testing has confirmed Picasa will support Debian Sarge and Etch, Fedora Core 4 and 5, Linspire 5, Mandriva 2006 and 2005, Red Hat Workstation 3 and Workstation, Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger), and SuSE 9.3 and 10.0.
