Important Notes

  • Compatibility

    You can only use the Picasa Web Album integrated features if you sign in to your site using a Google Account.  Google Apps does not support Picasa Web Albums yet, so you cannot use a Google Apps Account to insert pictures from a Picasa Web Album.

  • Page Layout

    If you use any page layout other than One Column (Simple) the inserted image will appear at the top of the page and you need to move it to the position you want.  If you use the One Column (Simple) then the inserted image will appear where you place the cursor.
