Posted on 09 January 2012 by FBiframes

FBiframes’ Visual/HTML Editor app enables Google Picasa users to embed a slideshow, images, photos and photo albums into your Facebook fan page.

Embedding Picasa slideshows, albums, and images

Increase interaction with your businesses Facebook Fan page by embedding a Picasa slideshow, album, or image. All it takes is the small snippet of HTML that you then paste in the HTML view of your FBiframes apps admin dashboard.

  5. Once you’ve chosen your settings, copy the resulting HTML code (Ctrl-C).
  6. Back in FBiframes admin Paste the HTML (Ctrl-V) in the HTML view for your fan page

Album

When you embed an album in your site, the album cover will display. Viewers who click the cover image will then be taken to view the album in Picasa Web Albums. Follow these steps to embed an album:

  4. Set the following preferences:
    • Select your preferred image size.
    • Select ‘Hide album link’ to remove a link to the containing album, which is displayed by default with the image.
    • Select ‘Image only (no link)’ to get the image URL by itself, with no link back to Picasa Web Albums.

  6. Back in FBiframes admin Paste the HTML (Ctrl-V) in the HTML view for your fan page

 

Design Tip:  Be sure to add a header image that will help your newly embedded PDF standout on your Facebook fan page tab. Upload a header image (520px wide) to the “Visual” tab in the WYSIWYG before you add the embed code from Scribd. Also remember to “Save” before you toggle between the “Visual Tab” and the “HTML Tab”
