Just now. I find it. Very very great.

Picasa is a free software download from Google. Now available for Linux!

Picasa is software that helps you instantly find, edit and share all the pictures on your computer. Every time you open Picasa, it automatically locates all your pictures (even ones you forgot you had) and sorts them into visual albums organized by date with folder names you will recognize. You can drag and drop to arrange your albums and make labels to create new groups. Picasa makes sure your pictures are always organized.

Picasa also makes advanced editing simple by putting one-click fixes and powerful effects at your fingertips. And Picasa makes it a snap to share your pictures – you can email, print photos home, and even post pictures on your own blog.

Thursday, May 24, 2007 new Chart component is integrated to SRC680m213

Over 3 years(planned 2004-02-11 10:09, integrated 2007-05-22 22:21), CWS chart2mst3 is integrated to SRC680m213. This CWS include 332 tasks and 2003 files. will do more work at this new chart. And now Issue 67754(right angle axes option for 3D charts) is good work.
Under Excel, 3D charts are not displayed as real 3D objects, but as simplified 3D

X axes is horizontal while Y axes is vertical.

I find this simplified display more readable et nicer, the rendering is less as
a staircase because most of the lines of the chart are horizontal or verticales.

It would be interesting to add this option in the 3D view to display this
