Hi Stephen.  Yes, they are (the Gbutts FF extension is pretty useful -
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3576 - esp. with dropdown
menu, horizontal).

I don't want to install Picasa, but the web interface for it
(http://picasaweb.google.com/home) is good.  I've just started using
F-Spot again, and this works with Picasa on the Web.  The Picasa app is
good, but unnecessary with F-Spot's functions doing the job.

Beyond that, I might actually start using my webspace, with some FLOSS
apps, even though this isn't as immediately 'social'.

Probable solution:
Drupal (http://drupal.org/)
'Gallery' Drupal Module (http://drupal.org/project/gallery)
Gallery (http://gallery.menalto.com/)

I use Gmail, too, and it's excellent.  I did start to use other Google
features, but don't want to rely on one service supplier for too many
