The installed Vista gadget has what is known as a "flyout". The image below on the left shows the gadget with the flyout open. It provides more information about the image currently being shown.

This gadget is a slideshow, typically showing the most recently added pictures at FeaturePics.com. Click the image to go to the page at FeaturePics.com where the image is for sale. There you can see larger images as well as available pricing options.
If you are a FeaturePics Author, you already have a RSS Feed of your images. You can assign this RSS Feed as the gadget content source. If you want to distribute copies of the gadget pre-assigned with your RSS Feed URL, the staff at FeaturePics should be contacted to make arrangements. But the easier way would be to send an email containing a link to this page and the URL for them to paste into the gadget that they would download here. Change the gadget RSS feed to another.

There will be a URL in the address bar of your browser, and it is the URL you will need to paste into your gadget. Copy the URL.
