"What’s a holiday without the memorable (and embarrassing) photos? " a post at Google blog questions. The answer lies in the new features added to Picasa Web Albums. With the new features you can search your own or your friends' public albums captions, album titles, and album descriptions.
"Now, when you or anyone else views photos in Picasa Web Albums, there’s an option to order prints directly from the site. We currently offer prints and products from Shutterfly and PhotoWorks, but we’ll be adding more soon.
Other new features include video upload for easy sharing (it’s just like with photos—select them in Picasa and click the “Web Album” button) and searching tools. Now you can search over your own captions, album titles, and album descriptions, and you can even search for photos in your friends’ public albums. Digging up that picture of me trying to figure out which end of the holiday turkey is "up" should be easier than ever."
