    Hi,

    I'm super frustrated. I can't get the picasaweb image links to work in the for sale section. I've tried adding <img></img>, , <img src="></img>, etc... Nothing shows up. [​IMG] I have a slideshow I'd like to use too, but nothing. I see lots of posts showing how to use photobucket, but I have picasa loaded and ready to go. Hope someone knows how to make this work.

    Thanks!

    Thought it might help to show what picasa gives for link options.
    http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/_1gODsSy6nDuLqy2048tjSVD-CjSE8vietFGp7kUlXE?feat=directlink
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/_1gODsSy6nDuLqy2048tjSVD-CjSE8vietFGp7kUlXE?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_clRL_n9tAuw/TMi7wTRvkBI/AAAAAAAAAFE/m0vl6s5eCJA/s144/3 teen serama.jpg" height="144" width="127" /></a>
    and for the slide show:
    <table style="width:194px;"><tr><td align="center" style="height:194px;background:url(http://picasaweb.google.com/s/c/transparent_album_background.gif) no-repeat left"><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/1067769...thkey=Gv1sRgCNXpm7iSkJC-ngE&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_clRL_n9tAuw/TMi-zPtH62E/AAAAAAAAAGY/Buaidz-ueUw/s160-c/ExportedVideos.jpg" width="160" height="160" style="margin:1px 0 0 4px;"></a></td></tr><tr><td style="text-align:center;font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:11px"><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/1067769...thkey=Gv1sRgCNXpm7iSkJC-ngE&feat=embedwebsite" style="color:#4D4D4D;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;">Exported Videos</a></td></tr></table>
    or to imbed
    <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://picasaweb.google.com/s/c/bin/slideshow.swf" width="288" height="192" flashvars="host=picasaweb.google.com&hl=en_US&feat=flashalbum&RGB=0x000000&feed=http%3A%2F%2Fpicasaweb.google.com%2Fdata%2Ffeed%2Fapi%2Fuser%2F106776937818062558635%2Falbumid%2F5532881929823054689%3Falt%3Drss%26kind%3Dphoto%26authkey%3DGv1sRgCNXpm7iSkJC-ngE%26hl%3Den_US" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>

    Right-click on the image, select "copy image location", paste the image URL where you want it, and put the img code around it. BYC doesn't allow HTML.

    At least, that works when I want to post pictures. [​IMG]

    Thanks Kooshie! That worked for the image in the listing. [​IMG]
    I'm still trying to get the thumbnail and slide show to work. [​IMG]

    Slideshows won't work unless you make an animated GIF "slideshow".
