I don't understand how to use this. I can't get to any of my pictures when the dashboard is open.

Just drag your picture to the widget inside the dashboard. ;D

i'm having trouble as well... does one need development mode on or something? (really hot idea btw, i can't wait to get it working)

angelos:
No need for development mode. Just open the dashboard bar, drag the widget where you want and go to the finder to choose your picture, drag it inside the SeeMe widget window inside the dashboard...

I'm checking and it works in here...

Not a very functional widget, nor much to look at. The size is too small. You should be able to flip this around and assign it to an iPhoto library or folder of pics within the finder.

I really like the simplicity of this widget. I can't believe apple didn't include something like this already.

Wishlist:
- Ability to not to have to crop pictures. Make it work like the buddy image chooser in iChat, only with simplified controls. And you could make it resizable too!
- Not so much of a highlight, on some pictures it's distracting.
- Improve the border: the radius of the inside bevel should be less than the outer bevel.
- Ability to choose border color would be nice too, sort of like the stickies widget.

Still, despite the shortcomings, the cute simplicity of this one will make it one of my oft-used widgets.

I may be missing something...

if you click off dashboard to drag a pic, dashboard goes away, so how exactly do you drag a pic to the See Me widget??

Thanks

while you're "holding" the picture, hit F12 and dashboard will open leaving you holding the picture. This widget must be open already for you to drag it there now.

the window should resize its aspect ratio for each picture.

I'll work the resizing part. Thanks for the comments!

Ah! That works. Thanks for the help!

It would be nice if there could be something like a "favorites" list, so you can just load some photos onto it and change it whenever, or it can just switch between the photos like a slide show.
