Blogger has added a new tool for their user’s called the “Slideshow Page Element“. This element adds a slideshow to your page that displays photos from your Picasa Web Albums, Flickr, Photobucket or any site that supports Media RSS. The photos will appear in your blogs sidebar, fading into one another. The slideshow supports navigation and each photo links to the albums home page. According to Blogger,
Like all page elements, Slideshow requires that your blog is using Layouts templates. Still need to switch? Read our help article on the topic.
Seems like a cool new feature to add to your hosted Blogger Blog.
