I’m happy to announce that after many days of debugging and testing,

I’ve published Picasa Badge! (as you can see on the right bar) ->

Dependencies: LWP::Simple perl module (namely also: perl-libwww)

Use this software at your own RISK!
The author declines every responsability about this software.

Picasa Badge is a perl script that lets you display on your website a badge containing picasa random photos or albums.
You can edit many settings and the style of your badge (it will be displayed on a <div id=“picasabadge”> </div> element that you can edit with you css style).

Include in your webpage the script by this way:
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“”></script>
As you can see, you can set various options,
Allowed options are:
* account = “Your Account Name
* kind = kind of display objects: “photo” or “album
* thumbsize = the site of thumbnails: 32, 48, 64, 72, 144, 160
* max-results = how many photos picasa badge have to display.
* total-items =  total photos stored on your album or total albums (You can obtain it on picasa account or reading the rss code of your account)
* vertical or horizontal = set it to “1” to see picasa badge vertical or horizontal
* display-logo = set it to “1” to see Picasa Badge logo on your badge

NOTE: I’ve added a little security fix to avoid overloading of my webserver: I’ve added my account name directly into source file to avoid that anyone could use it from my webserver, you can feel free to remove/edit it when you have downloaded the source file!
