Google launches Picasa Web Albums

In a not-that-suprising move Google today announced a new web albums feature for their acquired photo management application, Picasa. The new feature, available currently only by invitation, enables quick and easy uploading of images from Picasa to a Google hosted gallery system, you get just 250 MB of storage free and for $25 a year can get an additional 6 GB of storage (ad free). Picasa Web Albums will no doubt be of interest to existing Picasa users but probably won't be that attractive to new entrants or existing users of web sync'd software such as Phanfare.

I got the invitation today and loaded it all up and I am going to play with a little tomorrow. Picasa has never been my favorite Photo Program but we will see.

I have a Gmail account as wel and I got an email the other directing me to ask for an invitation and then that came in last night. Here is the address, try there and see if you can sign up for one. I think there was an invitation request at the bottom rght hand corner.

Ok here is a small gallery, 3 photos, just so I could test the interface. It is very similar to Flickr. An upload tool that asks for a gallery name, comments on the photos and where it was taken.

http://picasaweb.google.com/josephgribbin/Flowers

I am going to add some more but I wanted to test it out first.

Hey maybe this is the answer to the Nature/Landscape dilemma, make everyone post all their flower shots in a web gallery and just have a link to them. LOL
