Picasa Web Albums Widget Creator for New Blogger

Notice - as of May 17, 2007 Picasa Web Albums now offers their own easy to use flash embedded slideshow, effectively making this one obsolete. Picasa Web Albums Now with Slideshows.
Everything here still works, but the native flash presentation from Picasa Web Albums is slicker and probably what you want to use if you want a slideshow.

Mar 22, 2007 - JSON feed format at Picasa Web Albums changed, updated the widget maker to work with the new format. Widgets made before this date will need to be remade/installed. Fixed a few typos, rewrote info urls to the correct blog post, changed posting url from beta.blogger.com to www2.blogger.com as the beta address seemed to cause some issues. Also tweaked a few minor styling settings to work better with some of the standard Blogger template setups. Added smaller image size options.
