The slideshow does not link to the album, displays captions (if present) plays automatically and loops. Picasa Web Albums does not give any options for the slideshow so the gadget does not provide any either.
Picasa Web Albums also plays any videos uploaded to the album: the gadget displays these also but they appear shifted over to the right.
