Picasa Web Albums

Google has released Picasa Web Albums and I managed to sign up. See my web albums.

The bad part about Picasa Web is that it’s a long way from Flickr in terms of tagging and sharing. But it probably wasn’t built for that.

The good part is that it’s integrated with Picasa (integration with Flickr was my top wishlist item for Picasa) and best of all, with Google Earth. You can geotag photos on the new Beta version of Picasa.

    Two quick questions:
    1. Can I view the orginal size of the image or will I be restricted to some lower resolution image?
    2. Are there any upload limits (per image or per month)?
    Cheers, D.

    Oh OK. Question answered:
    “High-quality photos, automatically resized and optimized to fill available screen space”
    “Each Picasa Web Albums account comes with 250MB of free storage space”
