Re: donA2: How Does One Implement "add ons" in Picasa? Don't see it.

I don't see anywhere in Picasa or its Help website any way to insert "add ons" like Neat Image? Do mean using the "Open File in an Editor" Ctrl-Shift-O command? This only works if your viewer is not already Picasa Image Viewer. Can you explain how you did this?

Picasa only lacks noise reduction. That is available with a 'Neat Image' add on and is better than FastStone.

John, My wording was not the best.  It's not an 'add-on' to Picasa but a separate "trial version" download.  It isn't completely lossless but does work well.  Quite frankly, I rarely make use of it as I will settle for a bit of noise rather than risk loosing any perceived detail.  Obviously I don't do museum quality photography.
