With the 2.0.33 release Photocrati have implemented significant improvements in the XMLRPC handler and fixes the long standing issues with re-publishing of previosuly uploaded photos. Unfortunately with this change something else got broken. The issue I discovered today is with the "Create Album" method, and it is broken in two places. Without going into technical details I can tell only thing - now you can't create new albums from the plugin.
Note, "albums" in NGG terms are collections of galleries, and galleries are collections of photos. You are still able to create regular galleries.
As a workaround, you can create album from the Dashboard, then import them into your publishing service using the "Import Albums" feature.
