The Picasa client is designed to sync photos with Google's Picasaweb service as well as catalog, process and share select photos and albums. The software now offers a simple "Share on Google+" button for adding albums on Google's
social networking service.

The software also adds 24 new photo editing effects, side by side photo comparisons and a new simplified tray interface, Google said.
