It's importing my pictures right now. The program is probably WINE based like the linux version, but looks good. Feels a lot snappier than iPhoto ;-)

Interesting! Great looking app for being free.

After about 10 minutes of playing around with it I noticed Picasa's preview window seems to darken up my .nef and .dng photos that have Adobe RGB as their color space. It did not change my .jpg with sRGB.

When it first imported my pictures their color levels were as I see them in Bridge, or any other App on my mac, then you could see Picasa's viewer darkening them up, one at a time.

I will play around some more with it, but happy enough with bridge...

It is fast and the find faces feature is pretty good, even found the faces in statues I have photographed.

It will be interesting to play with this for a while. I wonder if it can replace iPhoto. It is not all fully there just yet but hopefully by the time Picasa 4 rolls out it will be.

On the versiontracker link it says PPC for 10.4 and 10.5.

Works fine now on the versiontracker link too, thanks!

It is Intel only:
