    How can these companies get away with charging totally different amounts for the same software in different countries. The pound is not as strong against the dollar as a few months ago but still 19.90 is actually $35 at today’s rate.

    And how is this better than Picasa’s FREE collage feature. I don’t think this is even integrated with any other picture management functionality aka Windows Live Galllery or whatever MS has for/against Picasa.
