A Flash gallery with Picasa Web albums API

I was in need for a flash gallery which will show photographs from my Picasa web album with the use of an API and which I could embed into my website with some simple configurable variables.Posted by IRKFDB on Sep 25, 2008

This is not the greatest of Flash albums, you might have ever seen. But well this is my attempt to get in the most simplest form which I needed.

Although its not that configurable or doesn't have any option to set, but I'll try to make it better, more dynamic and post it back here sometime in near future. So give it a try and if there are any suggestion please comment. And also whoever wants to develop it, please go ahead below there is a link to download the source files, and you would create magic with it.

For the album to be embedded into your website you will need couple of things from picasa web albums. So goto your picasa web albums and click on the particular album. Now on the right hand side there is a RSS link, simply click on it. An RSS file will open now copy the url in the address bar. it will something like this:Eg: //picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/swapsworld/albumid/4994626576923557905t=rss&kind=photo&hl=en_US Now locate the bold content in the url, 1st is your username and second is an albumid.

You will use this details in the example in the below downloadable zip file. Go through examples.Your username:swapsworldYour album id:4994626576923557905
