Picasa now officially sucks big time.

Several years ago I started using Picasa to publish my photo albums to the web and to share them with friends and family. I found it to be an easy to use application for creating albums and a nice user interface for viewing photo albums on the net. Now that Google has basically raped this great photo sharing mechanism and shoved it up the Google Plus asshole I find that the photo viewing online is now mostly unusable and the tight connection to Google+ is totally offensive and counter to the original intention of the site.

I'm now officially searching for a new photo sharing site that doesn't have some corporate ulterior motives to serve their own frigging world domination objective. God it's so f'ing irritating that these companies continually just try to increase their network dominance. It's like we're all caught in this frigging testosterone driven dominance game.

Google is the new Microsoft. The corporation that we all hate because of their focus on world domination. Time to find some new alternatives.

I just recently bought a nice digital Nikon and decided it would be nice to have a place to store photos so they don't get lost if I have a problem. Unfortunately I find that photos uploaded to Picasa are much much smaller than the originals. What's up with that? I will be deleting Picasa and not using it again. I should be master of my own photos and I decide when and how much to downsize or what ever I wish to do.

Yeah I recently started using Picasa but when I open a picture on my PC it seems retardly difficult to close it. No X in the top right or anything.
