      Not even close to being a replacement for Picasa. The entire program is non-intuitive.

      elrostelperien Great photo and tag management tools. It's also apparently the only program, from the ones listed, that has facial recognition features (although not great in comparison to Picasa's).

      IrfanView vs Picasa opinions
      This alternative is disputed. IrfanView is still a legitimate alternative to Picasa, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Irfanview is just an image viewer. If you're looking the program that has the exact function as Picassa I think you should skip this software.

      It's an image viewer, not an organizer. Most similar app to Picasa may be digiKam

      You can only look at one photo at a time. You can not organize or tag photos. The editing function is far superior to Picasa.
