While on vacation, I downloaded PICASA (free, by Google)to size and lightly edit digital photos. It saves the images in a proprietary format, but leaves the original as a jpg on your drive. The program has a great feature that allows one to create a b&w photo and edit it as if it were taken with a yellow, orange blue or green filter. It blows PS Elements away in this regard. When I try and export the finished image as a jpg to my drive, it is automatically resized from 1.2 mg to about 750 kb. Anyone that uses this program know how to avoid that?
