Direct Link To Google+ Photo Instead of Album? (5 posts)

    I was wondering if there was a way to make the each photo shown within the album link directly to the google+ photo, not the whole album?

    For example, if I click one of my photos(girl in gambling scene), it takes me to the whole album: https://plus.google.com/photos/106068371304824526771/albums/5873016766228727505?banner=pwa

    Instead of taking me here: https://plus.google.com/photos/106068371304824526771/albums/5873016766228727505/5873018739399292642?banner=pwa&pid=5873018739399292642&oid=106068371304824526771

    Is it possible to direct link to photos instead of whole album?

    you can right click on the image... and click "copy image url" then paste it anywhere you like.. (in chrome preferably.. or firefox should work too).

    This is the url for the image.

    It seems that google has stopped the sharing by removing the jpg extension. It seems I can share the image here and there but not in a blog post because it doesn't recognize the link as an image.
    ie.

    @svcitian - how did you get the jpg in the link? I"m using chrome.

    Hi!

    I want to enable links to the Picasa Web Album interface instead of direct image links, but I came across the same issue. As I have Google+ account, if I enable Picasa Web links in my pictures, then they will link to Picasa BUT then redirect to the Google+ link of the entire ALBUM, NOT the individual photo. So people click on a picture and they'll find themselves on the entire album with no instructions on how to see the picture they clicked. And if you click on the "return to Picasa" link, then you'll go to the Picasa ALBUM link. Yet again, users cannot see the picture unless they browse the gallery (tough if you have hundreds of photos on there).

    So I was playing around with the URLs and the "?noredirect=1" attibute, and found out that if I add it before the image code, then it works and everyone is directed to the Picasa photo interface instead of Google Plus.

    For example, the plugin will throw this link:

    https://picasaweb.google.com/104672279851481707377/LosSims42#6043815311423841570

    Then as I'm on Google Plus, you'll get lost in my album. But if I go to...

    https://picasaweb.google.com/104672279851481707377/LosSims42?noredirect=1#6043815311423841570

    Then it goes directly to Picasa and the user doesn't have to do anything but click the link on my site.

    However, this won't work if you put the ?noredirect=1 at the end of the link ( https://picasaweb.google.com/104672279851481707377/LosSims42#6043815311423841570?noredirect=1 )

    So, could the authors consider changing that little part of Picasa linking? Because the way it's currently implemented is useless if you're on Google Plus.

    Thank you.
