This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

kPicasa Gallery


ATTENTION: because of licencing issues, Highslide has been removed from kPicasa
Gallery. I apologize to everyone for the inconvenience.

This plugin displays your Picasa Web Galleries in a post or in a page simply by
creating a post or a page with a special keyword. All the images are kept on the
Picasa Web Gallery server.

Please note that PHP5 is required.

If enabled and properly configured, kPicasa Gallery will use the WP-Cache

You have to choice of using either Lightbox, Slimbox, Thickbox or
Fancybox for displaying the large version of your photos.

Slimbox support playing videos directly from your site. Selecting another
engine will open a new window to the original Picasa URL.

Advanced usage

Show specific albums

Browse to the Picasa web site and log yourself
in. You will then need to find the internal album name, as explained below.

For an album named “Trip to Europe”, the URL of that album will probably look
like this:
The internal album name is the last portion (TripToEurope). You will need to
find the internal album name for every album you want to display.

You will then need to call kPicasa Gallery like this (this will show 3 specific albums):
KPICASA_GALLERY(TripToEurope, TripToAsia, TripToAustralia)

Show a private album

Browse to the Picasa web site and log yourself
in. You will then need to find the internal album name and its authkey, as
explained below.

Let’s say the URL to your private album is:
The authkey is the last portion of the URL and is always 20 characters long.
Be careful not to include the # character that sometimes appear at the end of that URL.

You would have to use the following syntax:

Show albums from an alternative Picasa account

Please note that you can’t combine multiple accounts into the same post or page.

If you have more than one Picasa account, you can show the albums from another
account by calling kPicasa Gallery like this:


  1. Unzip the archive to your wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Go in the Options menu, select kPicasa Gallery and set your parameters.
  4. Create post or a page and write KPICASA_GALLERY on its own line.
  5. Browse to that post or page, voilà!


No longer working

Why do developers leave defunct plugins on here, and not even notify users (several thousand in this case) that it is extinct????
