Embedding Slide Shows

So, I just finished my science bike post.  I was surprised to learn that I could no longer embed a slideshow from an album.  (Granted, I am a Flickr person and rarely deal with Picassa outside of the mandatory collections from this blog.)

Luckily, this blog post provided a solution. The author writes:

One of the great features of Picasa Web was that you could embed a Flash slideshow of your albums. Google would even give you the code to do it.  There was a button that said Embed and it would give you the code. Just cut and paste and you were done. 
With the migration to Google Plus Photos, this disappeared. 
Here's a work around. 
Use the following link to get back to the original PicasaWeb site:
Hopefully the embed button makes a re-appearance, or Google leaves the old page up forever.

He also offers an alternate solution, if you want to go check it out.
