I am trying out 7.x-1.x-dev & I have local galleries working fine e.g. sites/default/files/albums, but not getting a Picasa gallery to display. At sites/default/files/brilliant_gallery_temp/bg_picasa_orig_xyz & I see all the original size images have indeed been retrieved from the Picasa album. I have searched directories in sites/default/files but there are no resized/cached images derived from Picasa originals. Do I need to specify a directory somewhere for the resize/cache images to go into? If so, where? Thanks for any assistance. Brilliant module.

Are the Picasa features not yet fully developed for Drupal 7? Can anyone clarify current status? Thanks.

I would still appreciate a response on this. Thanks.

D7 is stable; it works fine in most cases.

The simplest way to get your Picasa album show on a page, enable the BG filter and put the following into the body of your page (with your Picasa feed URL of course!) ... e.g.
[bg|location = https://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/104031880678382567653/a...

What tag are you using? Are you on a Win or Linux server?

Make sure you have the latest version of the module.

Thanks for your response.
(My drupal.org notifications were disabled so I missed your reply until now.)
I got it working like this:
I updated the module to latest dev version, and changed my tag from [bg|https://...] to your suggestion of [bg|location = https://...] .
I also needed to adjust the input filter (text format) settings so that the only filter applied is for the Brilliant Gallery tag (for full html text format which only admin has permission to use).
Now I see gallery thumbs displayed properly, thanks again for great module.

I still got the same issue. All the original images stored in the files/albums/... folder and works fine. But there are no resized/cached images.


All images downloaded in: sites\default\files\albums\bg_picasa_orig_61f0be38df16fdcfe632f8259933fecb

Thumbnails are linked to: sites/default/files/albums/bg_cached_resized_xxxxx.jpg

Problem is there are no thumbnails. I am searching for hours, but still have no solution. What do I have to do to fix this? Allready tried the newest dev versie. But still doesn't work. Also checked the Drupal reports but I don't have any errors.
