One of my gripes with Picasa is that it doesn’t do slideshows outside folders. Or so I thought until I did another search today if one of the recent versions had solved his issue. It seems that it is possible but only if you create an album and assign photos to that album. Why? What I would like to do is to just create a search term (I use very long descriptive filenames for my photos) and let a slideshow run from that search query. Google, Picasa please include in a release in the near future. Thanks!
