Picasa, Google’s photo storage, hosting and sharing service, has increased the maximum number of Picasa web albums tenfold, from 1,000 to 10,000. The limit might not have been a big issue for the most Picasa users, but, Google has made its power users very happy.

When you check your Picasa account, visually, nothing has changed, Picasa still lists 100 albums by default. If a user has more than 100 albums, then, a couple of links, at the bottom of the page, will be displayed for the user to click and see more albums.

Very few people needed more than 1,000 albums to store their images online. Since the storage limit is still only 1 GB, it would be very hard to reach it with regular use. However, those who bought additional space, presumably heavy users of Picasa, found that they ran out of albums much sooner than they would run out of space.

This is what Google has said in its official Picasa blog:

Ten times more albums

We want Picasa Web Albums to be a place you can share and store all your digital photos, regardless of how many you have. We recently made extra storage really affordable, but until now, Picasa Web accounts have been limited to a maximum of 1,000 albums. We heard that you needed more room, and because we want you to keep sharing your photos and posting them to Buzz, we’ve worked hard to now raise this limit to 10,000 albums.

Since we want the Picasa Web experience to be really fast, the default view still only shows a hundred albums. If you have more than a hundred albums, you’ll see two links at the bottom of your screen that let you to load the rest.

Google has recently slashed prices for its popular online data backup and photo storage services.
