How do I embed images from Picassa?
First, you'll need a Picassa account, but if you have a Blogger blog, you already have one! Also, Picassa is part of Google, and if you have Gmail, you have access to Picassa.
Log on to Picassa, and have the desired images ready.
Use the Picassa controls to upload your images. (Select or create an album to upload them to, so you can easily find them later.)
Open the album and click on the image. It opens in its own screen -- and notice that over on the right is a set of tools.
Click on LINK TO THIS IMAGE, and more tools pop open:
You'll get the choice of "thumbnail," "small," "medium" and either "large" or "original size."
Choose whichever size is appropriate for your page. Now, check the box for IMAGE ONLY, NO LINK.
You can select either the link or the embed code, because either is acceptable when you come to click on the ADD IMAGE icon in your editor here at the Bookshelf.
Click to add an image, and a dialo box opens. See the field labelled, Image URL.
Paste in the code from Picassa. Close the dialog ... and you're done! You're now loading the image from your Picassa account -- no space whatsoever was used up at The Bookshelf. (This is why the Bookshelf is free, and can remain so for a long time to come!)
