How to embed your Google Photos in WordPress

I have been researching how to embed photos in my WordPress or blog and most answers I’ve seen was that I need to install a plugin.  And yes, you have to install “Google Photos embed” by enomoto@celtislab.

Before I show some information in purchasing hosting in Godaddy, let me tell you how to embed photos first.

  1.  Open the browser (Safari) on where you want to post your picture.

2.  Pick your chosen photo in “Google Photos”.

3.  Click on “Share” icon on the upper right.

4.  Choose “Get Link”

5.  Copy the Link.

6.  Then paste it on where you want it.  Depending on your internet speed, the picture might take a while for you to see.  Remember that based on my experience, this only works in Safari.

Process above worked out for me, I hope it does for you too.  As promised, let me tell you a little information about purchasing hosting from Godaddy.

    Oh wow this is a great guide. I know this can definitely be helpful for those not wanting to overload their sites with hosting images when it can be stored elsewhere.

    I wanted to say that this is really useful. I have a wordpress site and I do prefer to use my storage space for my own photos and videos. It’s much easier to keep track of your digital assets that way. I’m currently with wordpress.com but after reading your post I’m considering swapping to GoDaddy when it’s time to renew my hosting package.
