WordPress Tip: Embedding Google photos to a post or page

Unlike Flickr or YouTube, there is no direct way to grab embed code for a photo on Google Photos but there is a way to do it.

  • Go to Google Photos and select photo that you would wish to embed
  • Open the photo in full (not as thumbnail)
  • Right click on the image and select “Copy image location”
  • Return to word press post or page
  • Click on add media
  • Select insert from URL and past Google photo link that was copied
  • Provide caption or alt text
  • Click on insert to post

Enjoy inserting photos to your post right from Google photos.
