Latest Updates for PicasaPrint

Updates to Picasa are made on an ongoing basis. These updates may include bug fixes, performance enhancements, additional hardware/device support and other improvements.

To make sure you are running the latest version of the software, follow the manual update instructions below. If your software is out of date, you will occasionally receive automatic alerts when you open Picasa that updates are available. You may choose to update at that time. Please note that we don't always auto-update people when new builds are available since some builds contain fixes and/or improvements that are only relevant to a small percentage of users.
