The slideshow above is a Picasa slide show. This is the first time I have ever used it. I have a preference for the community tools built into Flickr, and first uploaded my pictures there. After 15 minutes or so, the upload had finished, but processing still had not. In fact, quite a few minutes later, Flickr still hasn't processed the pictures into my photostream. I got frustrated waiting, so I decided to give the PicasaWeb Photo Album a try. I like it. It worked when I wanted it to. I am sure there is something to be learned from that.
ps: The Flickr version finally got posted. Compare it here.
