Picasa just got updated. The Google powered tool which acts as an image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing digital photos, while providing one gigabyte of free storage space to deliver the features of a photo-sharing website. Picasa’s update has changed the way storage works which helps you continue to share and store images even after you have filled up the free storage space.
Earlier, each image and video uploaded counted toward your free 1GB. Now, users can benefit from additional storage with content such as images having 800 pixels or smaller and videos 15 minutes or less in length will no longer count against your free storage limit.
You can upload and store more, adding photos and videos at the detailed sizes, for free.
Images with 800-pixels size is obviously a nice size to share picture on the web, but for those looking at a larger size or better quality should keep in mind of the 1GB limit. Users also have the access to add additional storage for as little as $5 per year.
