Comments on Picolino 2013

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Have you all actually tried this software?
I have.

If you did, you would realise that in this Giveaway (even after so-called "Activation", the version sent to you has a maximum limit of 2,000 photos that you can upload to their website.

You have to pay $20 to get the Premium version for unlimited uploads.

The Freeware version of Picolino has a few albums that limit you to 50 photos per album.

So what I want to tell you all, is that this Giveaway is NOT a sincere giveaway at all.

It is just a "hook" to bait you into paying for the Premium version.

It is just a handicapped version of the Premium Version, which you would have to pay $20 to get unlimited photo uploads.

I am uninstalling Picolino immediately after this message and sticking with my (FREE) Photobucket usage.

Use Flickr.com - they have all the features you'd ever want. I have a pro account with them - 100% worth it!!!

I normally won't comment unless I tried first. But this demands an exception.
There are so many ways to share pictures on the interwebs.
www.photobucket.com is my personal favourite. Bags of free space, editing features etc.
But you take your (free) pick.

I agree that a drag and drop gui is needed.

I also think that the premium price of $20.00 is not well explained. As we are not getting galleries ala Zenfolio or groups like Flickr I believe that the price is overly high and should be $7.00 American since it's real competitor is Photobucket which does allow about the same 2000 uploads for Free and has a photo editor which Picolino does not. So in the end, it's a nice setup but the pricing is out of whack.

I will not support the uploading of any more images of puppies, kittens, and babies, as this abomination would surely facilitate. And, it doesn't really do a terrific-job of that. Developers, please brainstorm current customer needs better. Thanks, anyway, but I'm sure you'll do better later on. Let us know!

"Sharing photos has never been easier." Really? Have you never heard of Picasa? Or Facebook? Heck, you can do it easily in Twitter, too. What are you talking about??

I'll use Picolino in the future because Flickr requires me to resize my photos beforehand. I usually take photos with 12 Megapixels meaning that they are huge. Using Flickr is nice but it takes ages to upload all photos. THius picolino resizes them first and then it uploads them. :)

For some reason this program reminds me of my old
8088 and its massive 20 MB hard drive.

Is this as good as Photochop? I might be adle to use this for pix and make them clearer photos and imagines. It could be a good app I can use later perhaps when have more time. Could get a good responce from this this. Apears to be a most usefull app. Thank

Picasa is free (picasa.google.com), has online file sharing, has more features including a file browser. Lots of people use it meaning there's almost limitless free help and tutorials on the internet. Why spend $20 and get less?

With there being so many websites that already offer the opportunity to store images, create albums and share etc, a product like this would need something that they do not have to be of use.

So far, I cannot find anything that is unique.

Perhaps if it had some kind of method of being able to create a complete structure of images on your PC that could then be uploaded in one go, then it might have use.

If that functionality then also had an option to update the online albums automatically with images added to the local structure then it would be worth looking at in order to automate a process more easily.

20 bucks for this?? Come on...must be a joke...LOL!!

Maybe at Abelssoft headquarter are not aware of the presence of sites like Facebook, Picasa, Dropbox etc... where it's possible to share not only photos but also videos for FREE!!

Besides that there are also FREE tools which do the same as this GAOTD without charging a dime though...

For instance, this crazy FREE GEM helps you batch upload and share both photos and VIDEOS directly to Facebook with right-click or drag&drop, without even logging in your Facebook accounts via your browser (also supports for adding your photos & videos on multiple FB accounts and switching among them with one mouse click):


And this one can even automatically upload your pics and videos to FLICKR at a scheduled time:


And how about share your files (docs, software, pictures, videos etc...) over 250 file hosting servers for FREE, with the possibility of parallel uploading?? Yes dudes, you heard me right: with this FREE GEM you can automatically upload any file (photos, videos etc...) to a single, multiple or even to all 250 supported services simultaneously literally with just a mouse click for FREE!!


So what's the point of charging 20 bucks for a poor app like this GAOTD, if it cannnot even share VIDEOS unlike the FREE tools mentioned above?? Big mystery!!

My 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 cent for today's giveaway!!

Not all developers deem it necessary to come on here and interact with the GOTD community but today's would be well advised to do so because in the absence of any meaningful information, it has just re-invented the wheel -- and wholly unsuccessfully, too - and would like to charge $20 for it.

As everything Picolino offers has long, long, lonnnnng been available for exactly nothing, Abelssoft might like to explain how its $20 product differs from, say, the freeware Picasa or a host of other free cloud albums too numerous to even begin to count.

In fact: in what way is this seemingly bizarre redundancy different to even a simple upload of family or holiday video to one's gmail account / Google storage?? (Ah. Don't answer that, Abelssoft. Apparently the difference is that Picolino can't actually upload and store any video at all.)

Absent any information that makes any sense on this page, resorting to the Abelssoft website is the only course of action open to a prospective user -- but as nothing of any meaning exists there either, it's yet more time wasted.

At the very least, the developer should be mentioning any maximum upload file size restrictions / display size restrictions that may or may not apply, because on the basis of its own demonstration link:


its full-screen online album can manage images of 425 x 283 pixels at 72pi with a maximum width of less than six inches and a maximum height of less than four inches -- just the thing for all of us here who are using a 14" CRT monitor on an 80286x running Windows for Workgroups.

Until the developer drops by here to explain what this product actually *is*, I'm not going to be the only one to conclude that Abelssoft created Picolino for a release date of April 1st but ran late -- exactly like that obviously unbiased comment from Horst weiss at #3. . .)

I'm not sure why anyone would need a piece of dedicated software, with it's own restrictions, to perform a job that thousands of websites do already for free? I must be missing something.

This is a nice one: Took me less than 5 minutes to install and use it and it works out of the box. :-)

Even in "full-screen" mode, the user's online pictures will have pathetic small dimensions: 424x283 pixels. Nothing more than a thumbnail :-( (see http://picolino.net/diashow.php?album_id=330)

Great app. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks GOTD. :-)
