Add the feature of nested folders to Google Photos.

Image from store Nested Folders for Google Photos
Description from store For many years Google has failed to listen to its users and give us the ability to have a folder structure in whatever photos product they happen to be pushing. So I have written a small Chrome plugin that attempts to fix this issue. This is the third major version of this plugin, unfortunately rather than making it better the major versions have just been to keep up with google's new products, first Picasa, then G+, now Photos. This is v1 for Photos, and it is pretty rough, especially since I wrote it in one night. But it seems to function, could use some CSS help though. Use the naming structure Folder/Folder/Folder/Album when creating your album names. ChangeLog: v0.403 - Change album names to display only the name of the level navigated to rather than the entire name. v0.402 - add settings to control error retries, scroll attempts, scroll wait time during initial load. v0.401 - Port to Google Photos

  • (2017-10-06) Andrew McCallum: Thank you for filling this gap in Google Photos. I still don't understand why Big G hasn't included this.
  • (2016-10-16) Jereme Guenther: Of course I love it, I wrote it. Hopefully Google will make something better, but until then at least we have something.

  • (2019-10-11, v:0.405) Phi Tau Historian: needs an update
    I believe this extension no longer works due to Google nixing the sync ability between photos and drive. I can't seem to get it to work for me at all.

    Hello! I don't know, maybe I'm missing something completely obvious but I have no idea how it's supposed to work. I use the Folder/Album naming but nothing happens. Thank you for your response.

  • (2017-12-26, v:0.405) Michael Hall: blank screen
    I'm also having this problem, any ideas?
  • (2017-10-16, v:0.405) Page goes blank after couple of seconds
    I'm having the same issue as the previous user. This extension would be truly incredible if the bug is fixed. Thanks, Kellie
  • (2017-07-13, v:0.405) John Crombe: Page blanks out after 2 seconds?
    Hey Jereme, GREAT program! I think the Google Photos Nested Folders extension could be awesome except I have ONE bug that's killing it for me... When it's turned on, and I open up a folder, it shows the contents for 2 seconds and then the screen completely blanks out. If I hit Reload, it shows up for 2 seconds again and then blanks out again. I've tried changing every option in your settings, but nothing seems to help. Can you please verify? Thanks so much. There's NOTHING like your extension on the market. I really want to use it to get organized!!! Thanks again, John
