It can't and (from a little research I just did) I don't think I can add it yet. When Google makes a Google+ API for accessing photos then maybe it will be possible, but right now there is only the PicasaWeb API which doesn't have that functionality.

Is there any active developer request at google for it?

I believe it is something that Google is working on now that they've basically merged Picasa Web Albums into Google+.

Hello,

I added this tonight to test out so I could see my kids on the big screen. While it works, it seems the only way to see full photos is to do the slideshow? Am I missing something? I thought I could just click on the name and bring up a fullsize photo but there seems no option for that? Also my wife and I bought have accounts, can I add both of them?

Thanks

You should be able to click on an image and it will be displayed. If that isn't working for you, I'll probably need a log.

Excellent, I tried it with my other XBMC and it works. Thanks for this. It doesn't work on the Kodi alpha 3 which I installed last night. Is there anyway to add two Picassa web accounts?

Not yet. I guess I better add that ability as people keep asking for it Smile

well my wife has a cell phone and I have a cell phone. We each backup to google+ and then can view the files through gallery on the android app. One thing that I just found is the cyanogen gallery for android lets me add both user accounts and then combines the photos together rather than having to look at one or the other. I don't know if thats easy or hard, but it would be nice if that could be an option.
