Where did my Picasa photos go when I'm paying for storage?

Okay. So I go to Picasa online today on my iPad and I cannot view my photos (YEARS of precious photos!) without sharing them on Google+. Whut?!?!? I pay for extra Google storage and have plenty left. I do not want to be/use Google+ (I'm not on FB, either). [more inside]

"It's becoming critical, Captain. We can't handle it."

Picasa does everything thing I want in a light photo editor (cropping, highlight and shadow correction, roation (90 degree and free)) and browser except it does not support multiple computers using the same meta data. My fricken database has been corrupted again (apparently it doesn't handle 200K+ photos very well either) so I'm looking for an alternative that does support syncing between multiple computers and network storage.

Picasa needs glasses

is there a way to make picasa web albums private so that people can see the picture you link for them but can't go and see the full album? right now, the options are "unlisted" which means people can see the picture you send them the link for but they can still hit "view all" and see the whole album or "sign in to view" which means they can't see anything at all is there an in-between?

Iphoto for windows?

I use Iphoto but my wife has a laptop with windows XP installed. She has been using Picasa, but we both hate it. We import pictures then they disappear. It's really difficult to navigate our existing photos, whereas with Iphoto it's fairly simple, even though hardcore photographers seem to hate it. We just want something that allows her to easily import pictures from her camera or card reader and browse them easily with a chronological sort by roll/album/year etc. [more inside]

Google account disappears -- help!

We had a Google account which stored photos in Picasa web albums, and paid for extra storage. One day, the account simply disappeared. We contacted Google. They replied "Because our investigation was inconclusive, we can't provide you with access to this Google Account. ... we take privacy and security of our users very seriously. For this reason, we're unable to reveal any further information about the account you'd like to access." This is Kafka-esque. We can't figure out how to get any more information or help. Any idea what to do?
