Google Homepage Image Selector.

Yesterday, Google released the Google Homepage API including some new widgets.
I saw the widgets and I found them to be very cool, so I took a look at the sources of some of them and came to realise that I could make my own modules.

So, I took the Developer Guide and while doing that, I got the idea for making an image-placeholder, so people could have some personal picture in their Google Homepage.

I've finished it (to my liking) and made it ready for publication:

I've also sent it in to be added to Google's index (someone will probably have done something similar since this isn't really anything ground-breaking, but still, it's my first little module to try out the API. :P).

Anyway, one thing about the module: if you're using the Developer Module be sure to set this module to be "inlined" so that the image you select isn't being cut-through (so you don't need to scroll in the iframe).
