Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

The results are very similar to those of the collage-making feature built into Picasa (Create > Picture Collage), but it's an online service. You create your collage by adding images to an online canvas (you can add multiple images at once). What'...

How to add an awesome Picasa or Flickr slideshow to your website

Picasa is awesome. The way that it integrates with Web Albums is very convenient, and the process of selecting your best images and uploading them to an online album is extremely polished. However, when the time comes to share this album with your friends, you might want to show them something a bit more personalized than a generic Picasa Web Albums link. If you are a professional or aspiring p...

Paint.Net plugin lets you view and edit Photoshop PSD files

The aptly-named Paint.Net PSD Plugin is one of those pieces of software which pretty much spells it all out right in the name. It's a plugin...for Paint.Net...(wait for it)...which lets you open files saved in Photoshop's PSD format. Download the zip archive, dump the included PhotoShop.dll file into your Paint.Net FileTypes folder (usually c:\program files\Paint.Net\FileTypes), and you're rea...
