I am looking for a product which doesn't require an email address, but only a username, to setup an account, if possible.
Actually, you don't need a Gmail email address to use Picasa Web Albums. You just need a Google Account.
A Google Account is a universal account for Google services. Like many online accounts today, it requires you to use a working email address as the account name. But that email address doesn't have to be a Gmail address.
If I create an album on Flickr, is it at all possible for friends to add their pics to my album & possibly create other albums (using their personal logins)?
You could create a (private) "Group" on flickr ... you could have your photos show up there, and your friends could add their photos (from their personal flickr accounts) to that Group. ALL the photos from all users, would appear in the one "Group" (although they would have the individual User Name with the photo).
Both the Group and/or the photos in your account can be private or public, as you wish. A "private group" can only be viewed by those flickr users that you give access to.
To create "other albums", each user could have a "set" on their individual user page (public or private) and others could view those sets ...
I am looking for a product which doesn't require an email address,
flickr has a "Guest Pass" feature to enable you to email an encoded URL to a friend -- they can then see the photos in your "set" without the need to create an account on flickr. For more on that look at the flickr FAQ for "Guest Pass".
edited to add info on Guest pass [/edit]
