Adding Photos From Google Photos

Photos uploaded to other Google products such as the former Picasa and Google+ photos were transitioned to Google Photos. Albums you created should still be available for you to use.

Log in to your Google account and select Photos.

See what you have available already for photos and albums. You can upload more photos and create albums, animation, and collages.

If you want to insert a single photo, you can find its URL by selecting that photo in Google Photos, selecting the Share icon and then selecting the Get link option. The link will be created and you can copy it to use for pasting into the URL box when inserting images on your Google Site.

To insert an album, select Albums in Google Photos and find the album you want to insert. Select ​the Share option. Then select the Get link option. A URL will be created that you can use to copy and paste into the URL box when inserting images on your Google site.

Add Flickr Images and Slideshows to Your Google Webpage

You can embed single images or slideshows into a Google webpage.

  1. First, go to your Flickr account.
  2. Find the image you want to embed.
  3. Find the Share This link and select Grab the HTML
  4. Copy the HTML and use this to embed the image on your Google webpage using the Image URL command of the Insert/Image menu for your Google page.

Embedding a Flickr Slideshow

  1. Go to your Flickr account and to your Slideshows.
  2. Find the Share link.
  3. Select Grab the HTML.
  4. Note the height and width of the Slideshow in the HTML and modify it as needed before you paste the HTML into your Google webpage. You won't be able to edit those elements except by editing the code.

Using Flickr Slideshow

You can use the website to easily create a custom Flickr photo slideshow. Just enter the web address of your Flickr user page or of a photo set to get the HTML code you will use to embed in your webpage. You can add tags and set the width and height for your slideshow. In order to work, the album has to be open to the public.

Adding Flickr Galleries Using a Gadget or Widget

You can also use a third-party gadget such as the Flickr Gallery Widget to add a gallery or slideshow to your Google Site. These options may include a fee for the third party. You would add them from the Insert menu, followed by the More gadgets link. Paste in the URL of the gallery you have created with the widget.
