      I'm sure many of you heard about Google's image hosting service Picasaweb (picasaweb.google.com). I think Picasaweb is great service, but for those how posts their pictures on this forum picasaweb has never been really friendly. Links generated on the web site somewhat useful for blogers, but useless on discussion boards that use bbcode.

      Well, I was bored one day and decided to make something that will help me generate bbcode for my picasa albums. So here is my solution http://cmp.315design.com/tools/picasa/.

      I hope this helps somebody.

      GREAT.....Loved it, very useful. All my images in picasaweb.

      A pain in the behind looking for the url for the pic in the embed picture code.

      thanks

      If you made one for flickr I'd use it.

      I'm not familiar with flickr api, but google search shows that there are a lot of similar applications. Unfortunately I did not see any that really easy to use.

      My first impression is that flickr is not going to as simple as google, but i think it is possible.

      finally got around and made this: http://cmp.315design.com/tools/flickr/. Sort of Flickr to BBCode.

      any feedback is appreciated.

      I know it is down on your list of things to do, but any chance you can fix the tool?
