Taken from Picasa help screens.....


Embedding albums, images, and slideshows
You can jazz up your blog or website by embedding a slideshow, album, or image. All it takes is a small snippet of HTML that you paste in the source code for your blog or website. Here's how to get it:
SlideshowYou can embed a Flash slideshow of any web album. It'll be automatically updated when you make changes to your album. Follow these steps to embed a slideshow:
  1. On the My Photos page, click your album.
  1. Click Link to this album on the right-hand side.
  1. Click Embed Slideshow.
  1. Choose your slideshow settings, such as image size, captions, and autoplay.
  1. Once you've chosen your settings, copy the resulting HTML code (Ctrl-C).
  1. Paste the HTML in the source code for your site (Ctrl-V).
An albumWhen you embed an album in your site, the album cover will display. Viewers who click the cover image will then be taken to view the album in Picasa Web Albums. Follow these steps to embed an album:
  1. On the My Photos page, click your album.
  1. Click Link to this album on the right-hand side.
  1. Copy the HTML (Ctrl-C) in the 'Paste HTML to embed in website' field.
  1. Paste the HTML (Ctrl-V) in the source code for your site.
An imageFollow these steps to embed a Picasa Web Albums image in your site.
  1. On the My Photos page, click your album.
  1. Click the photo you'd like to embed.
  1. Click Link to this Photo on the right sidebar.
  1. Set the following preferences:
  • Select your preferred image size.
  • Select 'Hide album link' to remove a link to the containing album, which is displayed by default with the image.
  • Select 'Image only (no link)' to get the image URL by itself, with no link back to Picasa Web Albums.
  1. Copy the HTML (Ctrl-C) in the 'Embed image' field on the right-hand side.
  1. Paste the HTML (Ctrl-V) in the source code for your site.
These tools will only use for albums with visibilities set to be 'Public' or 'Limited, anyone with the link."
