- Organization and editing. For organizing photos, Picasa has file importing and tracking features, as well as tags and collections for further sorting.
- Keywords. Picasa uses picasa.ini files to keep track of keywords for each image. In addition to this, Picasa attaches IPTC keyword data to JPEG files, but not to any other file format.
- Searching. Picasa has a search bar that is always visible when viewing the library. Searches are live in that displayed items are filtered as you type.
- Viewing. Picasa has no separate view window. There is only an "edit view" with a viewing area. Fullscreen view is available in slideshow mode.
- Backup. Picasa does not overwrite photos when changes are made. Instead, it lists all the changes made and puts the list in a separate file.
