How To Embed A Photo Slideshow from Google Plus Picasa

Picasa GalleryApparently back in March 2013 or so Google changed up their whole online Picasa deal and didn’t include the option to embed a gallery slideshow on other sites.  And now all your Picasa albums forward over to Google Plus pages.  Super dumb, yeah?

I was trying to find a way to do so for a photo gallery inside the VIP Members Area of my artist site.  After some digging, here’s what I came up with.

What You’ll Learn

  • The “back door” into the old Picasa
  • Your quick 4-step process to getting the embed code for your Picasa gallery.

There’s a back door way to sneak back into the old Picasa.  Use this URL: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos?noredirect=1

That turns off the redirect to Google+ and you only need to click it once.  Your browser will remember after that.

Once inside Picasa, follow these steps:

1. Click on the album you want to embed

2. On the right side, click “Link to this album” then “Embed Slideshow”

3. That will kick up a little popup with some parameters you can set any way you like.

4. Copy the code and paste is wherever you want it.

And voila! A nifty little slideshow like the one below.
