Today Google anounced the addition of web albums which will accompany their image cataloging software Picasa. Until this announcement, the software did not provide any online photo album capabilities. The program is by invite only as they test, but will involve 250 MB of free photo storage with the option to pay $25 per year for 6 GB of photo storage. Web albums allows users to share their photos with friends and family more easily, write captions, comments and build slideshows.
