How do I find my web album id number?

I am trying to display a single album on a webpage and I am using a particular piece of software that needs the web album id? How do I find the album id for each of the albums posted on my account?2008-12-15
 
Don, this is how the code is done in google - http://code.google.com/apis/picasaweb/developers_guide_protocol.html
each album created on Picasa Web Albums generates a unique ID, but I don't know how to get that just being a regular user and nota developer.
 
Is there a way to contact google directly?

"Album ID" is not a term used anywhere that I know of at the Picasa Web Albums site. 
Do they want the URL to the web album?  

By the way, there is a Picasa web albums feature allowing you to embed a slideshow of a particular web album on your web page.
And there's a web albums feature that lets you link from your web page to a particular web album.

Here's how you get the album ID for a specific album.
 
Go to your PWA account and click on the album in question.
Click on the 'RSS' link to the right.
 
You should get something like the following:
picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/PWAusername/albumid/1234567890123456789?alt=rss&kind=photo&hl=en_US
 
Notice the long string of digits; that's your Album ID.

Go to your PWA account and click on the album in question.
Click on the 'RSS' link to the right.
 
I don't understand what that means

Here is an album you can follow with. Go ahead and click on this link:

After the album appears showing the photos, take a good look over in the right sidebar/panel.  You will see the letters RSS.  I right-click on the RSS link and copied the URL and pasted below for you.
