Photographs are a great way to document and share gardens and garden history. Here is what I have learned.

I have also used Picasa photo management & editing software from Google. It is comparable to Lightroom for photo management (organizing, searching, uploading...), but does not have the extensive editing tools found in Lightroom.

However, Picasa has two features not found in Lightroom: Adding text to photos & creating collages. These tools are dead simple to use and quite useful. Here is a photo I created in a couple of minutes using Picasa.

I love Picasa for it's ease of use too! The text is great because you can chose from a huge list of fonts and also do a custom color and then select where you want it to appear It's easy to move it around trying different locations until you feel it looks just right. I try not to add text that is too distracting so I often take more time making decisions of all the above choices. nodding

Thanks for the great article!
