Picasa images in blog posts

Here is an example of embedding a Picasa image in a Blogspot posting. I am including this to assist another blogger who is doing some interesting RepRap-related work but who's had a bit of trouble with Blogspot. To do this, I got the URL for the Picasa image by right-clicking on "View image" in Firefox so that I only had the image in the browser, and I used that in the "Add Image" thing in the "New post" top bar menu.

The HTML for this post (in part) looks like this:
<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""><img style="margin: 0pt 0pt 10px 10px; float: right; cursor: pointer; width: 267px; height: 200px;" src="" alt="" border="0" /></a>Here is an example of embedding a Picasa image...

I hope this helps. It shouldn't be necessary to study the HTML. If the Blogspot controls are cooperative, it should be generated automatically. If they don't cooperate, the HTML could be cut and pasted.
