This gadget works hand in hand with your Picasa Web Album. Adding your user name (gmail name) and the name of your album (http://picasaweb.google.com/(user)/(album)) makes it real simple and easy to add.
For some help on adding gadgets, be sure to check out the post Useful Gadgets to learn how to add them to your site. For an example of the Cooliris Gallery you can view my site 3sgraphics.com to see how they work.

Hey, I'm Web Princess aka Beckystar and welcome to my first blog, thank you Kyle for having me! Using social media buttons to share your site or content is easy and expected by your visitors.
