I'm not sure if this is an issue with the photo viewer rather than the gadget.

I use picassa as my default viewer and have no issues with display of the image, but I have seen other reports of the default viewer failing

There is no sidebar in Windows 7 in the way that there is in Vista - The process is still called sidebar.exe, but it works in a different way.

Check the tutorials here for a method of installing the actual Vista sidebar in Windows 7

There is I think some bug that is causing the issue you have, hopefully this will be addressed with an update soon, either to the gadget or the viewer
