Thumbnails look smaller, and there's some little sharing icon.
PS WHY can you not sort these alphabetically?

It suggest to share with tagged people... Cool, but it's still not as pratical as Facebook.

A notification system (OpenSocial, are you coming for Xmas?) would be far better than this.

BTW, we still can't share a single pic, except by duplicating the pic in a new album (share the link to a contact and all the album is accessible to him).

Note that Orkut launched the same feature lately:

Well, there are a "share button" but it's not really like Google Docs one...

The example link for a public (locked album) now says :

I don't think they are necessarily locked.. It just means 'sign-on' is required. When I tested it out, I half expected to set an Album 'password'. But that's no the case.

So, when will google add storage space? With Windows Live offering 25 GB for free now, isn't it silly to expect users to pay $20 for 5 GB now? [PersonRank 10]

They use a lock as an icon, with the element class reading "SPRITE_lock-protected"... after creating such an album you are meant to specifically invite those people you want to share the album with...
