Liquid Mongoose adds Picasa to its repertoire

Make DIY paper cases for photo CDs with Liquid Mongoose. The little bookmarklet now works with Picasa Web albums.

Liquid Mongoose, the purveyors of the do-it-yourself DVD and music CD sleeves has put out a new version of its bookmarklet that supports Picasa Web albums. Now, if you're planning to burn a compilation photo CD or DVD, you'll be able to sleeve it in paper packaging that features thumbnail previews of what's on the disc.

I just gave it a spin on one of my recently uploaded albums and it worked flawlessly. Users with the existing bookmarklet won't have to upgrade since the JavaScript has stayed the same. The only confusing part is that the tool still requires you to first click the bookmarklet, then manually print out the page. I'd like to see an option where it automatically skips to the print dialogue.

If you're looking for a cheap and easy stocking stuffer, this beats the heck out of shelling out for a new DVD or jewel case. Not to mention that if you already have one, you can simply cut out the paper and slip it in.
