[resolved] [Plugin: Picasa Express x2] Show size other than thumbnail by default (5 posts)

    This plugin is almost perfect for what I need, but I have one request: the ability to configure which image size is used by default (in other words, instead of defaulting to "thumbnail" let the user decide).

    I prefer to display my images 500px wide. I don't want to change the options every time I choose an image, and I don't want to change the site's definition of "thumbnail" to be 500px wide, either.

    If the plugin uses the media library's definition of "thumbnail" can it be changed to allow use of one of the other pre-defined sizes? I don't have a problem changing the site's definition of "medium" to be 500px, so if I could configure the plugin to post "medium" size images instead of "thumbnail" size images in posts, that would be ideal.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    I'd like to second this request. I use the WordPress default thumbnail size setting for other site features, so I can't change its value in order to get larger images from the Picasa Express x2 plugin. I ended up modifying the PHP code for the plugin instead, so that it now posts all Picasa images at 700 pixels wide, and doesn't check the WordPress thumbnail settings for a value at all. It would be better if the ability to set this value independently of the WordPress thumbnail settings was built into the plugin, so that I don't have to worry about updating to new release versions.

    A second feature I would like to request is the ability to select multiple images from the preview window, rather than only one image at a time. It shouldn't be too difficult to allow users to hold the Control or Shift button to select and insert multiple images, but I'm not enough of a programmer to modify the plugin and add that feature myself.

    I'll think about feature for set custom thumbnail or select size in plugin settings.

    To select images you have to click on 'Image' button and switch them to 'Gallery'

    I understand that I can select an entire gallery's worth of images by switching to "Gallery," but what if I want to select many but not all of those images? Say I wanted to pick images number 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 17, 19, 22, 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, and 35? With the "Gallery" setting, I'd have to select all or nothing. With the "Image" setting, I'd have to select each of them singly, one at a time, in a long, drawn-out process. If I were able to hit the Control button to select multiple images at once, but not all of the images within a gallery, it would save me lots of time.

    When you switch to "Gallery" you can click to images and select what you want BEFORE you will insert all selected images to post.
    Additionally, if you enable custom order for gallery in the settings, you will see the number in top-right corner which allow you to control images order in the final gallery.
