[DEPRECATED] PicasaWeb - Picasa Web Albums Image Plugin Addon

Sorry for the delay in answering... I thought I would get an email when a reply occurred on the forum.

To answer the usage question (which will also explain the delay in my response a little too). We have some Rasberry Pi's setup at a church running xbmc and your addons in the entrance hall ways. By loading Picasa albums for the various locations the units, thanks to your software, we can display slideshows of the images we upload to Picasa. That way the TVs show a cycling presentation of info slides.

My requests were based on these thoughts:
- Internet is not guaranteed - if DSL goes down then so do all the displays
- If we leave these running all the time (people forget to unplug little PC's), then if they auto-refreshed the folder, they'd always be up to date

I know this is likely not the setup you expected it to be used, but it works great for this.

The fact that I am not playing with these units every day is also part of the reason for not getting back to you quicker... I set it up and it just works! Great! So these are more refinement requests that would assist in this kind of slideshow use. It could be we are using totally the wrong thing to achieve this, but it does the job and was easy to setup.


I do have a new and hopefully much simpler question though: is there a way of changing the zoom sizing used to show the images? While the xbmc desktop is fullscreen on the TV, the slideshow appears cropped (top and bottom) and I was wondering if there are any stretch options I cannot see? I looked in the add-on options I could find, under Configure Add-on, but nothing stood out.

Thanks again, RW.
