In some case it may be better use directly in templates with folloving code:

    echo (new Pavex_embed_google_photos_album()) -> getcode(
        'https://photos.app.goo.gl/CSV7NDstShTUwUZq5', 0, 480, 1920, 1080

How do I update my album?

The album will update automatically as soon as you save or update your post.


Simply Works

Be only fair to say it does work, on WordPress 5.x also. Very simple in terms of options it seems to me. But by the time you've tried a million ways to simply embed a google photos album, without hiccups *which is much harder than it should be*, then you begin to appreciate that the slideshow is the only way to go. This works at least. No menus or anything after installation, just shortcode with album url in it.. [embed-google-photos-album "...google photos album url..."].
