Sharing on Picassa Web Albums with non gmail accounts

Within the past three weeks, not sure when, people with non gmail accounts quit getting my invitations to view albums. I do not have Google Plus. How do I rectify this situation? I remember they took the auto fill feature away and then it mysteriously reappeared a few months later. Please help this is making me crazy?

I haven’t heard about anything getting disabled about sharing with non gmail accounts.  I’m going to test that using my web albums.  Just to be sure we’re on the same page, click the screenshot below and see if the form you’re using looks the same as mine.

Then I click the button that reads, “Share Via Email”

A way around any Sharing issue with Picasa Web Albums though would be to copy the Link to the album, and send that link in a regular email message.  In the right sidebar, just below the Share option, you should see a link that says “Link to this Album”  Click that and it opens up two text boxes, the first one contains the link to copy – then just paste that into a regular email to your friends.

Hope that helps
