XMP coupled with the correct integration of IPTC image tags in addition to beautiful support for EXIF geotagging, determined me to start using Picasa again. Now that I am a dedicated Picasa user, I will start sharing a few tips for making Picasa do what you want.In this article I will be sharing a few simple tips for making Picasa run faster.I run Picasa on my desktop computer which has no problem with memory and speed.
When Picasa scans your computer for pictures, something happens in the background.There are a few Picasa software processes that crawl your computer and identify all image types and take all the information from those pictures and import them into the Picasa database.These background processes, while very efficient, they do slow down your computer.Normally, I would expect that Picasa will run very slow on my netbook.However, after applying the few tweaks I describe below, Picasa is running very quickly on my netbook as well.
So read on and see if you can make your Picasa run faster as well. By default, Picasa will be searching your entire computer and will scan your entire computer continuously for pictures.
However, the great thing about Picasa is that you can customize just about everything, including how you want Picasa to scan for new pictures.
Picasa is a great digital asset management software.
If you have been reading my blog, you know that I have struggled with Picasa over the years.
I have installed it many times only to uninstall it days later.
This has all changed recently when they have released version 3.8, when Picasa started supporting the XMP standard regarding image metadata.
