Now, just add Live Writer to your arsenal, and you'll be good to go! :)I like Picasa!
You will be amazed at what you can do with Picasa with a bit of practice. I used to use photoshop, but haven't in some time, takes forever to load and I am usually wanting to just tweak things a bit. Ditto on the LiveWriter. I finally found that one last summer and have been SOOOOOOOO grateful. No more blogger format junk to deal with. Love both these programs.
