Damn! The picasa photo viewer, which was one of my favorite favorite tool to view photos, is terrible!! At the beginning, I always thought my pictures were blurred out. May be the sharpen wasn’t applied properly. So I used to revisit my edits. But thankfully today I cross-verified. This damn thing is actually pathetic in clarity!!
Here is my visual verification:
Picasa Photo Viewer(left) Vs Windows Photo Viewer (right)
Adobe Bridge Viewer
Evidently, ‘Windows Photo Viewer’ is the sharpest followed by ‘Adobe Bridge Viewer,’ which is smoother! But ‘Picasa Photo Viewer’ is the worst!! With in one system (i.e., exactly same eco-system), if there are so many variations in display I wonder how will it appear on a Linux box or in an Android phone?! Damn! I hate this lack of consistency. Makes the life of a photographer extremely difficult! 🙁
Need to find a single cross-platform product that will give a true perspective to every photo viewed through it! #wait-mode on! 🙂
