Picasa for Mac and FileMaker Pro 10 Released

Google today released Picasa for Mac. As detailed in the Official Google Mac Blog entry on the release, the beta version of Google's free photo management application provides users with a number of tools for photo manipulation while also providing smooth integration with Picasa's free photo-sharing site.

If you've never tried Picasa before, it's a program that helps you manage, edit, and share your photo collection. It works especially well with Picasa Web Albums, Google's free photo-sharing site, so it can help you manage the photo albums you've shared online with friends and family as well as the photos on your computer. In addition to photo editing tools, the Picasa client includes features like automatic web sync, fast and simple sharing, collage making, and simple movie editing.

Google notes that several features, including geotagging and webcam capture, are not yet functional, but will be added at a later date. Picasa for Mac requires OS X 10.4 or later and an Intel-based Mac.

Today also saw the release of FileMaker Pro 10. FileMaker's press release covers a number of improvements in the database application's interface and new scripting and reporting features. FileMaker Pro 10 is priced at $299 for new users and $179 for users upgrading from FileMaker 8 or later. FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced, which brings additional development and customization tools, is priced at $499 for new users and $299 for upgrade users. Server versions of both packages are also available.

Both of these releases had been expected and were highlighted in our Macworld Rumor Roundup.
