    I am crossing over to the Mac camp. I really haven't used iPhoto and don't know if it replaces Picassa.

    I do light editing but mostly require organization abilities and smooth cloud storage.

    Any preferences on MobileMe vs Picassa storage as a bonus question

    I've always found mobileme to be slow, though I like iPhoto. My suggestion is to try both, I believe apple offers a trial price for mobileme give it a shot.

    I really like iPhoto but is so SLOW!!! I hope they fix it in the next iLife update.

    I'm using both. I use iPhoto to store and organize my photos, while I use Picasa for editing.

    The great thing about using iPhoto is the seamless integration with other Apple products - the whole iLife set and it's great with iWork, Mail and Photobooth too. It also allows you to sync all those faces and events to your iPod!

    Edit: I just checked, and if you use iPhoto, Picasa detects all the photos in your iPhoto library.
