SlideshowFx Picasa Widget is a small free of charge Joomla! module which allows you to display Google Picasa albums or photos thumbnails in modules.
Thumbnails are displayed with configurable transition effects (Fading, Sliding, Zooming...). A click on thumbnail will redirect user to a configurable web page (Google Picasa Gallery, internal web page...).
When user is redirected to a SlideshowFx gallery, SlideshowFx Picasa Widget can directly open the album clicked.
Demo available on top and left of this web page.
A snapshot of backend extension parameters is available here.
This extension works with all modern browsers (Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera...).
On server side, SlideshowFx Picasa Widget requires PHP 5 and cURL extension (see Joomla! backend in menu Help > System Info > PHP Information).
Specific packages are provided for Joomla! 1.5 or Joomla! 2.5 (demo here).
This module is free of charge. However, a small attribution message is displayed when mouse goes over the thumbnails. This message is disabled when SlideshowFx GPL or Pro version are installed (requires SlideshowFx 3.02 or higher). This is a way for me to thanks all people who support this project through their donates. A short hidden message (SlideshowFx Picasa Widget for Joomla!) and link (www.oopstouch.com) are inserted beside the module.
Please report any issue on dedicated Forum available here.
