How To Embed A Picasa Photo Slideshow Into Your Blog
Thanks to another inspirational comment by Jane Peters on my blog post "Coconut Grove - Milpitas, CA (Santa Clara County, California)" I decided to write this tutorial on how to embed a Picasa Photo Slideshow into your (ActiveRain) blog:
Once you login or sign up for Picasa, create or select a photo album that will contain all of the photos you wish to display on the slideshow, then upload all of your photos into that photo album.
1. After you click on the photo album from the "My Photos" page (or click on "View All" if you're looking at a photo), this is the page that will appear, where you see all photos in the photo album. Click on "Link to this album" in the right column to display the drop-down links.
2. Click on "Embed Slideshow" and the pop-up window shown below will appear. Select your slideshow size (note: Extra large 600px works good for AR blogs) and decide whether you want to show or hide the photo captions during the slideshow, as well as if you want the slideshow to autoplay or if you would rather viewers click play to view it. Now, copy the code you see in the yellow box and paste it into the "Entry" section of your ActiveRain blog...just be sure you are in HTML mode and not WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) mode.
