I notice that you’re using Picasa. I’ve recently been recommending to family to try out Flickr, using Flock to upload photos.
The constraint on Flickr as a free service is 100MB per month, which isn’t much when the JPEGs are 3-4 MB, but is a lot when you downsample the photos. Flock allows you to downsample to 1024×768 on uploads to Flickr.
Another alternative, if you prefer to resize photos as a separate step, is to use Xnview to resize photos in a batch.
Both alternatives are cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux), which is a big plus for me.
I like Picasa’s offline photo management tool, which is the main reason why I use their web-based sharing. =) I’ve used some Linux-based photo management tools as well (digikam, etc), some of which integrated with my Gallery2 installation, but Picasa’s pretty cool.
