H Google Photos is one of the most popular services for backing up your digital photos on the cloud. It has no storage restrictions, you can upload pictures and videos you want and it has a visual search that helps you easily find the photo you are looking for. There is a feature that most users still ignore on Google Phos.

You can easily share your photos with anyone using a simple connection, although Google Phothos does not offer a choice to embed an existing image on a webpage. That is, if you've already uploaded an image to Google Phottos, you can not embed it directly into your website through Google Phos.

Η Embed Google Photos is a new web application that, as the name implies, makes it extremely easy for you to select any image hosted on Google Photos and place it on a web page using simple HTML code. See below how you can do it.

  • go to photos.google.com and open the image you want to embed on your website.
  • Click the "Share" icon, then in the window that appears, select "Download Link" to create a shared link for this image.
  • go to CTRLQ, paste this link and create an embed code for this image right at the bottom of the site. Copy to clipboard.

Open the html code of your website and paste the code you just saved. The image will appear on your website and will be shared directly from your Google Account.

With this trick, you can share photos through Google Phosos links as long as they have been shared, including those that are not linked to your account. The web application downloads the page behind this link and exports the Open Graph tags to find the direct link of the specific image from the entire photo album.

The app only works for images, not albums. There is no relevant research or update about any bandwidth restrictions for the images that are shared through Google Phos. So if you have a very popular site with big traffic maybe sometime Google will stop the connection. If so, please let us know as a note to this article.
