How do I add Picasa Web Albums to XhibitSignage?

One of the advantages of XhibitSignage is the wide variety of supported media content. Among them is the ability to integrate Picasa Web Albums into your media library for use in Playlists and Schedules. If you have a Picasa account and a web album you wish to use, you can add it in just a few quick steps. The following knowledgebase article explains how to add a Picasa Web Album to XhibitSignage.com.

Adding a Picasa Web Album

 
 
  • Find and select the album you wish to upload.
  • In the URL bar, make a note of the long number string after picasaweb.google.com. This is the User ID
  • In the URL Bar, make a note of the Album Name. This is the name of the album you are viewing without any spaces, and it appears after the User ID in the web address
  • If you have correctly navigated to the album, the web address will look like this: https://picasaweb.google.com/UserID/AlbumName
 
 
  • Login to your Xhibitsignage.com account and navigate to the "Add Media" screen.
  • Select "Gallery" and then click "Picasa" to open the uploader.
  • In the "User ID" field, copy and paste the User ID from earlier - this is the string found immediately after picasaweb.google.com
  • In the "Album ID" field, put the name of the album you wish to upload. This is found in the URL immediately after the User ID (after the long string).
  • Optionally, you can adjust the refresh time to control how frequently the widget will check for updates. Once you're satisfied with your changes, click "Save".
 
 While we will continue to support previously established Picasa content for the foreseeable future, please note that Google has dropped support for Picasa and now supports Google Photos instead.
