Picasa is a discontinued image organizer and image viewer for organizing and editing digital photos, plus an integrated photo-sharing website, originally created by a company named Lifescape in 2002. 2 years later, Google acquired Picasa.
Have you ever wondered what Picasa really mean? Well, it is a combination of the name of Spanish painter Picasso and the phrase “mi casa” which means my house and “Pic” for pictures. It’s a brilliant name, right?
However, in 2016, Google announced that it would focus on developing the cloud-based Google Photos instead of Picasa Web Album. And then on 1st May 2016, Picasa Web Albums was completely closed.
