Picasa Web Albums gets mobile, and maps photos

Picasa has underwent some drastic improvements, and the evidence was made available late Tuesday evening.

Picasa Web Albums now has the ability to drag and drop imagery right onto a map, so you can pinpoint the exact locations where your pictures were taken. This new Map my Photos feature can be done by entering the location in the Place Taken field, or by dropping single images onto a map. Maps can then be shared, and even viewed in Google Earth.

Google has also introduced a Picasa Web Albums built exclusively for mobile devices. By visiting http://photos.google.com and entering your Picasa credentials, you are brought to a list of your available photo sets. Photos can then be viewed and downloaded onto your device. Just make sure you have a nice size data plan before viewing them. Comments can also be made on your friends photos by entering the My Favorites sections.
