    Hi,

    First of all, thanks a lot for this great plugin. I would like to show a selection of my picasa albums but it doesn't work:

    [gallery type='picasa' user_id='101865474192174761757' kind='album' album='GR20_09' thumbsize='75']

    but when I try in "photo mode", it works fine:

    [gallery type='picasa' user_id='101865474192174761757' kind='photo' album='GR20_09' thumbsize='75']

    I use the correct album id from picasa, and album is public. Link to the album:
    https://picasaweb.google.com/101865474192174761757/GR20_09?authuser=0&feat=directlink

    Can you tell me if I'm doing something wrong or if the functionality doesn't exist. If not, it will be great to add the functionality to select album with argument kind='album', so it is possible to show the cover of a selection of your picasa albums (especially since scrap and profile albums are generated automatically by picasa).

    Thanks for the help

    The functionality doesn't exist at this point. If you are passing an album id, the only possible result is the display of thumbnails of images in that album - you will not get just one thumbnail representative of the album.

    You can experiment with CSS though, using the second shortcode you pasted above, then displaying only the first image from the album and hiding all the rest via CSS.

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    I will try with modifying CSS then. Can you give more details on the modification of the CSS to make in order to show only the first photo of the album?

    It will be great to add this feature for your next version :-) along with the possibility to show "private" album using 'authkey' argument. I have done it very easily by modifying the function get_gallery_images() in Photonic_Picasa_Processor.php (line 88):

    if (isset($authkey) && trim($authkey) != '')  {
            		 $query_url .='authkey='.$authkey.'&';
    		}

    I have a feeling the same function should be modified to allow passing albumid along with kind'album' but I can't figure it out yet.

    Hi louiscacaret,

    I modified the function get_gallery_images() in Photonic_Picasa_Processor.php - but still there a no private albums showing up in my blog.

    What else do I have to modify or choose in options menu? Please provide any tipps!

    I'm not very familiar with authkeys etc.

    Thx!
    Oliver
