Google adds Unlisted Gallery Tab for Picasa

Today, everyone uses the Picasa Web Albums. Therefore, we have an update of the Picasa. The Picasa Web Albums adds a link at the top of the page to let you share most of your albums: "unlisted gallery". At the same time, the URL includes an authentication Key that you can reset from the settings page of the site.
Public Gallery
Those viewing your public gallery will be able to see all of your public albums, plus the albums where they're included on the 'Shared with' list.
Unlisted Gallery
Your unlisted gallery displays all of your public and unlisted albums. Albums set to the most private visibilty setting - 'Sign-in required to view' - will not be displayed unless the person viewing is included on an individual album's 'Shared with' list.

Your unlisted gallery has an authorization key in the web address; this key is a combination of letters and numbers, which makes the web address very difficult to guess. You can manually generate a new authorization key at any time for your unlisted gallery. A new key is useful if more people than intended are viewing your unlisted gallery.
