Stu's Quick Pic
A simple plug-in widget to allow the display of a picture from its URL. Developed to allow existing webcam files to be displayed on a blog sidebar without actually modifying the file. The title of the displayed widget, the image height and width, alternate text for the image and image URL can be modified on the widget admin page.
The image is initialized to my webcam picture of a Shark Oil Barometer which is located in Switzer Canyon in Arizona, USA. The link for that page is http://stu-in-flag.net/barometer.php. But, this can be easily modified to another URL source.
