Picasa Updates

I use Picasa as my photo editing program.  It's free and it's easy to use, very intuitive.  When I logged in today, it automatically updated itself and suddenly, there are lots of new ways to play with photos.  No doubt they are trying to compete with all the cool photo apps one can get for photos taken with an iPhone.
I had fun trying out some of the new selections, using a picture of myself from Grade 2.  Here's the original:

 This is what they call the "heat map":

Here's the neon effect:

and what they call "pencil sketch"

There are lots to choose from. I think I'm going to enjoy these extra options. Maybe I don't need an iPhone camera after all?
