    Hi all, I just bought a brand-spanking-new rMBP 15" and loaded my profile from my old MBP 13"(late 2009). All looks great, of course! However, it seems Picasa is still thinking that it is on a regular (non-retina) computer. I'll attach a screenshot - it's all blurry and disgusting, compared to the awesome look of other apps on retina. Quick googling didn't seem to point to the being a common problem.
    HELP?

    If Google didn't update the app itself to take advantage of Retina Displays, it's going to look like crap. There is no way around it.

    Of course. But I thought they did. There's plenty of people who use it here, I am sure.

    Can someone using Picasa please confirm either way.

    Just use it with low-resolution.. it shouldn't effect you that much.

    You mean - check the check-box in the app info to Open in Low Resolution? I tried doing that, but still got a crappy, pixelated result. Did you mean something else?
