Picassa Web Albums Launched

Google has added a Web Albums feature to its free photo editor, Picasa.

Picasa Web Albums is Picasaâ??s newest feature, designed to help users post and share their photos quickly and easily on the web.

The service is offered by invitation only on a first come, first serve basis for the time being. Web Albums includes 250 MB of photo storage and is upgradeable to 6 GB of storage for $25 a year. By comarison, Flickr – an obvious competitor to this service – offers 20MB on its free account and unlimited storage for $25 a year.

Being a Mac user, I have never had an occasion to use something like Picasa for photo organization, defaulting to iPhoto with a plugin for uploading to Flickr. Can anyone who has used Picasa speak to its pros and cons?
