Picasaed is a WordPress widget for Google’s Picasa Web that works pretty much the same as the Flickr Widget. It is all sorts of XHTML friendly, if that’s what gets your motor running. It doesn’t do anything fancy, it just displays X number of photos from a specific album’s RSS feed. I might add one bell or one whistle in the future, but right now I’m interested in making what’s there a bit better and not much else.

The important thing to know is that there are no styles attached to the output, that’s up to you. You can use #picasaed for the main widget and .picasaed_image for the specific images in your CSS stylesheet.

I can offer you this as a basic CSS suggestion, though you might not even need it. You could add this to your style.css file:

#picasaed ul li {text-align:center}
.picasaed_image {width:90%}

  3. Hi, neat little plugin – it works well on my page, but I would like to arrange thumbnails in a group, maybe 4across x 4down – is there any way of doing this. At the moment, they display as a list, with one photo under another.
