How can I embed my images in another website using Google Photos?

I use the albums on Picasa to save lots of images I need for another website. Now that Picasa will be discontinued, I'd like to know how can I get a direct link to my .jpg/.png/whatever files using Google Photos.

Hi there!

Currently, there was no way to embed photos directly from Google Photos. 
I suggest you send feedback to the Photos team. 

However, you can share a link to direct people to your album by: 
  1. Click Share 
  2. Copy link and post it on your website as hyperlink
Make sure that you also toggle on share album option by:
  1. Click More> then Sharing Options
  2. Toggle on Share album.

If you wanted to badly embed your photos, you could do that through Google Drive:
  1. Open your Google drive
  2. ClickSettings.
  3. Under General > check "Create a Google photos folder"

A Google Photos folder will then appear on "My Drive", locate your desired 
photo then follow these steps:embed images from google drive
That's too much work, but I hope it helps :)

This is a HUGE problem for me and makes Google Photos just about useless.
I hope Google reads these forums because this drives me CRAZY. I'm telling all my friends how worthless Google Photos is because it can't handle this very basic functionality.

I'm very sorry to hear your disappointment, but Google photos is still young and on its way to improvement. 
The team is doing their best to add features as soon as possible and reviews every feedback sent to them.

This is functionality in Picasa already. To have Google Photos not have all of the functionality in Picasa is abysmal.
