Galactic diffuse gamma-ray emission is an important constituent among the total observed gamma-ray emission of our Galaxy. Here we present specific developments to accommodate a new Interstellar Radiation Field (ISRF) model for use in the PICARD code for modeling of Galactic cosmic ray propagation and respective gamma-ray emission. On the basis of the new ISRF we provide predictions on Galactic diffuse gamma-ray emission in the GeV to TeV energy regime, and compare to a commonly used different ISRF. Emphasis was laid on obtaining robust predictions for observable signatures in the very high energy gamma-ray regime with a special attention to the energy regime for HESS. One of the most noteworthy results from using the new ISRF indicate increased gamma-ray fluxes in the Galactic Center region between 10 GeV and 10 TeV.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
