Google Picasa Web Albums now redirects to Google+ Photos

Google looking to push users to Google+ Photos, redirecting Picasa Web Albums to Google+ Photos

Google is looking to push users of Picasa Web Albums over to Google+ Photos. The URL that used to take users to Picasa now redirects users to Google+ Photos. Clicking will take you to Google+ Photos. However, not all hope is lost as there is a back door to get into Picasa.




Heading over to this Google page will take you to Picasa and will set a cookie that allows you to return to using the URL listed above. Eventually, Google may shut down the Picasa product for good as they continue to shuffle users over to the Google+ product, much like they did with the Google Docs product.


I'll give Picasa a year before it is completely shut down. If you still use Picasa, what are your thoughts? Is Google+ Photos a good replacement for Picasa?
