Using Google Photos anyone?

Recommended Posts



I have been using the Picasa application & Google photos online for my flight sim screenshots solution for years. I used to love it when it was Picasa web albums, it worked so well, but now that it has become "Google+ Photos" I find the interface sucks and is a pain to use. I'm really considering switching to Flickr instead.


I used to be very easily able to get a "hotlink", or direct link to the ".jpg" files on Picasa web albums, but I seem to be completely unable to do that using Google+ Photos. It would appear to be possible to hotlink photos using Flickr. Does anyone still use Google and know how to hotlink photos?

I often use Blogger to upload screenies, it appears to still use PicasaWeb as a back-end for photos, so you will see a blogger album show up in picasaweb and get links to the photos. Another site I use is photobucket.

Thanks for your help. I've decided that I'm not very happy with the new Google Photos online interface anyway, so I'll be using Flickr. I will still use the Picasa desktop app for organizing though, I quite like it.
