Your intrepid blogger

... here i am at the Port of Seattle. 

But mostly i wanted to show that one can publish fairly directly  from one's  Picasa album.  Here are some pros and cons:

(Upside) Usually i dink the picture in an external editor - adapting the contrast, cropping, and sizing acceptable my external editor.  This way i can dink directly in  Picasa which is quite adequate.

(Upside) Saves storage at our server.

(Upside) Saves storage on my local hard drive.

(Downside) You can't right click and view the image in your browser - you will need to download it.

(Downside) I have just three sizes: thumnail - too small,  medium - what you see above, large - which is way too large see below.

(Upside) I may be able to publish more pictures because the procedure would be faster plus i can publish others in my album and just refer to them here at fbi. 

(Upside) One benefit is that they have a really easy way of mapping all of the pictures in an album.  The thumnails show on the map and automatically scale.

(Upside) Of course then you have the ability to tag photos and share amoung others using picasa.

...i haven't totally decided yet, but i'm leaning twards switching over. The emiminating steps,  will mean that i will publish less big photos here and more photos in the picasa album.  The photos here will be smaller, but then you will be able to go over and see it in photo album, zoom to higher resolution, or see other photos in that context.

Are you publishing from your camera or later from your computer ?

Here are the steps:
(1) plug camera into computer and upload to my local albums
(2) select and classify there - star ones that i want to see in my personal slide show - i usually publish those ones that i keep wanting to see again from my starred photos
(3) dink and crop directly in my local picasa album - it is easy to undink should i change my mind
(4) click "Web Album" - select the album and click publish
(5) view photo in my web album (one click), and select size
(6) copy HTML to embed in website
(7) paste that into the comment or item of the blog after i clicked "View Source" which means that i am talking HTML.

The pre-typed text will go on the bottom of the picture, so it probably is best to put some line feeds before the picture.  It is difficult to figure out how to put text to the right of the picture.

This time i used the exact html suggested at Picasa. 
Upside is that it is hyperlinked direct to the photo in my album and you can zoom it there.
