For people willing to migrate from Picasa, DigiKam should (at least)
import the album definitions. Picasa has those *.pal files,
which hold some XML about the albums and pictures, see below for an example.
<property name="name" type="string" value="Order200709"/>
<property name="token" type="string" value="]album:00c...999ef"/>
<property name="category" type="num" value="0"/>
<property name="date" type="real64" value="39325.901100"/>
<property name="unread" type="flag" value="0"/>
<property name="uid" type="string" value="00caa...0999ef"/>
wish I could add my votes to this feature request, but can't find a button to do this...
Voting is in the header where it says "Importance: NOR wishlist with 20 votes (vote)"
This should also recognize Picasa's originals and create version stacks.

According to , Picasa album information is in .picasa.ini files starting from Picasa 3.9.  also gives the former filename for Windows: picasa.ini.
A description of Picasa .ini file format can be found in  for Picasa 3.8.0.
A similar bug report exists for Shotwell .
PicFace is an open source program which write Picasa information inside picture files . A page from its wiki explains what the face data structure read from .picasa.ini files and from contacts.xml.
