I had a go at Picasa Web Albums and really enjoyed it. My boss needed a couple of photos sent for a publication but she needed to review them and select the best. I had two problems:
1. She was overseas (thousands of miles away) and
2.The photos were quite big (over 80MB)
That's when I thought of Picasa and went on an "On the Job" self-training program. I simply jumped onto the Picasa Website, http://picasa.google.com , registered and before you know it, my bosss had a s heap of photos to ward through a make a slection. WHat a beauty.
Picasa really earned me some points on the job front. So you can also give it a try and see how it goes.
