I was pretty bored today and was just messing around with Picasa...and I found the folder on my hard drive where all my album covers are stored. I realized that I can easily just upload the entire folder to Picasa Web and use the embedded slideshow feature to have a slideshow of all the CDs I own. Whole process took about 5 minutes and makes a cool to show of your taste in music...

I put this up as an example: backyardmarchingband.com/mycds ...

Anyone else have some favorite tricks with Picasa?

I am using the about ther same thing for my videos.. Using Youtube and their last personnal video viewer.

<div align="center"><object width="320" height="320"><param value="http:// www.youtube.com/cp/vjVQa1PpcFPsbd_
RVlVY06bzE-kjsWXP7R5f-hg_1LQ=" name="movie"/><param value="transparent" name="wmode"/><embed width="320" src="http:// www.youtube.com/cp/vjVQa1PpcFPsbd_RVlVY06bzE-
kjsWXP7R5f-hg_1LQ=" wmode="transparent" height="320" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed></object></div>

And to make it easy I use the (pretty convenient) Firefox extension: FireUploader.
