i used picasa 2 today. it is wonderful. the interface is so user freindly with all the keyboard one wud expect in place. it was a pleasure looking at stuff. there is no doubt it is going to be my picture editor from now on. i can stuff liek the ms photodraw thing. though it is not that advanced. i guess we cud write more plug ins . i hope its on the google open source.
unfotunately the dont seem to have it yet. it wud make it easy for competitors to copy the interface,i guess.
