Hi everyone, we recently launched Picasa 3.9 (Build 135.93), which features Google+ sharing and tagging, 24 new editing effects, and a side-by-side editing view. We also simplified the button tray to encourage people to share, print, and export their photos, but you can customize your tray and add additional buttons by clicking the Tools menu, then choose Configure Buttons. If you’re a Google+ user, Picasa 3.9 lets you share your albums with your circles, and you can still access Picasa Web Albums directly by navigating to https://picasaweb.google.com. For more information about what's new in Picasa 3.9, please see our getting started guide at http://support.google.com/picasa/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1753765
We appreciate your feedback and will continue working to to improve Picasa. If you have suggestions on how we can improve the latest version, please let us know by searching the forum for an open discussion topic, or start your own. Cheers.
