  1. Looks like Picasa Web Albums is starting to make strides to close the gap with flickr. If they keep going in this direction, I just may switch. Especially with flickr’s mandated integration with Yahoo. But not yet. Picasa Web Albums still has a way to go…

  2. I’ve been using Picasa for a long time and since I switched have been sort of okay with using iPhoto. I don’t really like it but I’m able to get what I need done. I’ve been using the Picasa Web Albums plugin for a while now as well as a Flickr uploader plug in and I like the Picasa Web Album. Mainly because the free account lets me do more than I could with Flickr. I used up my quota of “albums” real quick on Flickr so I’ve been using Web Albums ever since.

    I don’t really like the look and feel of the Web Albums site though.
