Did google discontinued picasa as a referral?
I still have their picasa banner in one of my pages, but a small button in another page don't display. They've also removed it from adsense settings.

Maybe it is now a part of Google Pack?

Right, you can't get Picasa by itself anymore. It's part of the pack.

its not there.
I've contacted google. I thought they should let us know if they discontinued a referral, otherwise we'd be displaying it forever, not knowing that it no longer generates any revenues.

I got a referral for Picasa on Monday and got paid for it.

I never made a dime off of those picasa referrals. The only one that works for me is Firefox. I either get $.10, $.50, or sometimes $1.00 per referral. Still not enough to retire on.

I also had a Picassa referral online before just recently noticing it had gone away. I don't think those links earned no revenue. I believe clicking on a legacy Picassa link ended the user up at the Google Pack referral page.

seems that google pack is available for publishers only in some countries. But I'm waiting for their reply regarding my picasa ads that I've been displaying since the time picasa was available.

Yea, I used to do really well with Picasa referrals. People are a little less willing to get the entire pack.
