How to use Google Photos as a website hosting site

If you decide to show someone your photo stored in Google Photos, the service will give you the necessary link. But specify this link will not be on the photo itself, but only on the page with the image.

A small web application Embed Google Photos was created to help in this situation. It can not only scratch a photo from the depths of the photo service, but also generates HTML-code for inserting it into the web page.

Here’s how to use this service.

  1. Open the page with the photo you need in Google Photos.
  2. Click the Share button. Select “Get link” from the pop-up window.
