Watch Out Flickr, Google Is Coming

Is Google getting ready to compete with photo services like Flickr? They just might be because Philipp Lenssen noticed a link on the Picasa Homepage that points to a “New! Picasa Web Albums“. Unfortunately the page that the link points to doesn’t currently exist, but hopefully this is a hint.

I am looking forward to seeing what Google does special to make these albums so unique. Will they allow people to skin their pages so that everyone can have a customized look? They have so many services that they could integrate with a photo service, such as the Google Page Creator so that people can create their own sites and add their photo albums. Oh the possibilities!
