Picasa Web Album expands

Google’s Picasa Web Album service has expanded beyond the one price mindset that Flickr has instilled in us all. They started with an additional $25/year for an additional 6GB.

They now offer more options up to 250 gigs of space of your photos.

You only have 250 megs of space when you first sign up with them, which with the megapixel race at around 10-16 megapixels right now, you won’t be able to get many photos in the amount of space.

If you upgrade, you are also able to upload videos as well to the service, although I don’t see why when Google Video and Google’s YouTube will allow you to do the same. For free hosting of videos online in a downloadable format, there is always PodShow.

I understand where Google is trying to go with this, it does eliminate some of the confusion with monthly upload bandwidth meters, but I think Flickr‘s going to be number 1 in photo hosting/sharing for some time to come.
