How to embed Google Photos album using application

The Google photos embed tool has been around for a long time and I believe many of you find it useful.

I decided to integrate the Google Photos gallery embedder into the online bookmark manager Reabr. It is a very interesting and progressively developing application with a number of interesting features.

In this post I will describe the Reabr application and the Google photo embedding extension option. Reabr is an online organizer of your resources on the Internet. Reabr is a new project still under development. Now is public to use for everyone. It has great potential with many features.

Some basic information about the Reabr online booking manager can be found in the introductory post of the project – Let`s get started.

I’m going to show you a short tutorial on how to use the Embed Tool in Reabr.

First of all, you will need to sign in to Reabr with your Google account.

Existing embedding tools, and Reabr too, not require access to your Google photos. They use only the public parts of the photosets. First share your album and use the share link.

5 simple steps to insert a shared album

1) First, go to the main page and click “Sign-in” or “Get started“. The application will prompt you to log in. If you are a new user, a short introduction to the Reabr desktop will follow.

2) Select the “Add bookmark” button in the top menu. With this button, you can insert any link to a web page into the Board. You can set the boards as you like in the right part. You can create a hierarchy that suits you. E.g. “Google Photos”, “Public Albums”. or anything else.

Each entry item has a popup menu with tools.

5) After clicking the button, a dialog will appear containing a tool, similar to the one you know from the page.
