Any way to imbed pictures from Picasa?

I have been playing around with Google's Picasa software and wondering if there is a way to imbed pictures out of albums I make instead of just links?

I haven't tested it but maybe this helps...

While viewing a photo in your online album, click Embed in Blog/MySpace, and then check the "Hide album link" box (unless you want to embed the entire album). Copy the provided link and you're good to go.

Is this what you are trying and ending up with only URLs?

played with it for a couple minutes. The code they're giving you is html, you can't post html in the forum so unless they have a vbulletin based code to imbed images I don't see how it could work.

I don't seem to have an Embed in Blog/MySpace option, except for a slideshow. I have a "link to this photo" option only. Two options of code that look like this:

http://picasaweb.google.com/miknkel/...61645742328322

<a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/miknkel/PalmSprings08/photo?authkey=bjMVyuSVzww#5228261645742328322"><im g src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/miknkel/SI6ERCtFSgI/AAAAAAAAABo/n7rVjPrIcds/s144/DSC_1093.JPG" /></a>

Not sure I can do anything with these. I think the upper one just provides a link.

Can't you just use the Insert Image button?

Maybe resized for use on the forum?

That's just it, I'm trying not to have to resize them for upload to the forum. Picasa web albums does the resizing automatically.

Is this one of them? it looks like a thumbnail and not the image you are trying to embed though.

I got it from the link you posted... http:~~~~dsc_1093.jpg

Yeah, that's the one I uploaded to Picasa web albums as a test. No other pictures in there right now. Not sure why you only get a thumbnail though.

OK, after a little experimentation, you get the thumnail when using the img tags around the code that 919VQ highlighted in red. Why is it small though? Hmmmm.

Kind of a back asswords way of making them larger, but seems the only way to do it with this Picasa.

Right on Ripper! Thanks. I knew it had to be something simple. I was playing around with the ?imgmax= and that wasn't working.

Also jet or other admins, does this mean anything to you?
