    The plugin integration is with Picasa, not Google+ 🙂

    I can add some code so that it checks for the title first, then the description. That way you will be covered in either scenario.

    Ah;-)
    Think most people at least new to google get Google+ pushed, So Picasa will finnaly be dead I guess. So if this plugin can be modifeid that it handles Goole+ as weel would be great.

    It would be a nice feature to look for the title first.

    One other thing with Picasa vs Google+ is the slug on of the album.

    I agree with you on Google+ being the path forward, but I cannot agree with you on supporting Google+ instead of (or along with) Picasa.

    The APIs for Google+ and Picasa are very different. The former is more flexible and better documented, but it doesn’t have support for things for which APIs already exist … and one of such things is the photos’ module, a.k.a. Picasa. The only things that the Google+ API supports are users and user activities such as sharing or commenting (that doesn’t include photos).

    And since Google+ is the path forward, they have been treating Picasa as the undesirable stepchild, hence it hasn’t seen any useful upgrades. This attitude is apparently a very common malaise amongst Google-folk, as per quite a few of my friends who work there.

    The net result of this rock-and-a-hard-place situation is that given a Google+ album ID, there is absolutely no API for me to figure out what the Picasa album name should be. And I can’t dump the existing Picasa API because there isn’t anything from Google+ that replaces it.

    So for now I am stuck telling people to get the ID from Picasa rather than using the Google+ album ID.

    OK. There is now an option to show the title instead of the description. Set it up appropriately from Photonic → Settings → Picasa → Picasa Settings → Photo titles.
