Why did Picasa/Google do this. Not all of my contacts are signed up to Google+ and neither do they want to. Before when I wanted to share photos, picasa would recognise the email address from the first few letters. Now it only recognises emails that are signed up to Google+. Why did they do this? Why are they trying to make it more difficult to use. So frustrating.

Sorry, those are all good questions but I have no idea "Why".  And Google ain't saying.  Maybe they want us all off Picasaweb and on to Google+. I understand your pain and frustration.

My suggestion is to use the Share via email only option.  See screenshot below.
