Description from extension meta

Allow you to copy a direct link, with extension, from Google Photos.

Image from store Photos Direct Link
Description from store *Extension changed the name/icon to accomplish Google trademark rules. Allows you to copy a direct link, with extension (.jpg), from Google Album Archive (https://get.google.com/albumarchive) and Google Photos (https://photos.google.com). Google Album Archive and Google Photos doesn't allow you to get an image direct link (with image extension [like png or jpg]). This Chrome extension is very helpful to post images in forums or blogs, where the file extension is mandatory. Is possible to configure the desired image size too. IMPORTANT: Apparently, the generated URL (from Google Photos) stops working after some time. In my tests, some URLs stopped working after one day and others still working. WORKAROUND: Added support to Google Album Archive (http://get.google.com/algumarchive). Usage instructions: Open an image and just click (left click) over the image. A message is shown at the page bottom. This extension is open source and can be found in https://github.com/ddo02/GooglePhotosDirectLink

  • (2021-12-16) Etienne Jouin (Nammalvar): works well on my mac with chrome, I can copy a direct link to my picture, as expected. Great job !
  • (2021-01-13) Sales Team: I love how it just saves the URL with just a click. Saves me a bunch of time in my workflow. Awesome app!
  • (2020-11-15) Li-Pin Juan: It works like a charm to me. Here is what I did. 1. Install the extension. 2. Enable the extension in the incognito mode as well. 3. Upload the picture to your Google Photo in the non-incognito mode. 4. In Google Photon, go to the folder to which your picture was uploaded. Choose Share | Get link. 5. Launch another Chrome browser in the incognito mode. Paste and run the link you just got. 6. Once you see the folder with pictures shown, click any pictures you like. 7. Click the new reloaded picture. 8. You should see the message "Image URL copied to the clipboard" shown on the bottom of the chrome window. That's it.
  • (2020-08-07) Keith Henry: I did have to restart Chrome. (I rebooted actually.) It didn't work immediately after adding the extension, but it works now. Super helpful! Thanks.
  • (2020-03-24) C. Hauser: Wonderful. If you need it for public hosting, install this, and restart the Chrome browser. Then on Google Photos select your photo and add it to a Shared Album. Go back to your photo, just click on the image once and a message will tell the URL has been pasted to clipboard. Thank you so much for this!

  • (2018-11-21) Mad Mac: It works. I rebooted my computer. Click on the image desired. A message will appear as in the picture above that the image is copied to the clipboard. That URL does have the jpg extension. Options allow an image width to be chosen.
  • (2018-09-28) Ryan Auger: Doesn't work.
  • (2018-09-27) Alexander Lunev: Doesn't work at all.
  • (2018-07-07) Chris K: Google Photos does not support proper picture urls (jpg) - This extension is designed to do just that - but its doesn't - In fact it does nothing at all - Only way to get a proper url is delete this extension>open the google photo>right click> copy photo address> paste '?.jpg' on the end e.g. mypick463278?.jpg
  • (2018-05-26) Tyler Harney: There is no instructions on how to make this work.. NVM It works
  • (2018-04-14) Creo que es super útil. Quizá el modo de interacturar con el usuario es poco atractiva. Yo pondría una entrada en el menú emergente al pulsar el botón secundario del ratón sobre la imagen. En cualquier caso cumple su cometido y es una gran noticia porque hasta ahora no podía compartir las fotos que tengo en la nube de google y debía bajarlas y subirlas a cualquier otro sitio con el consiguiente transtorno, pérdida de tiempo y recursos de red. Muchas gracias por este gran trabajo. Te animo a que sigas mejorándolo porque creo que merece mucho la pena. Saludos
  • (2018-02-25) Dmytro Zamkovyi: I used to get direct link to google photo by right click -> copy image address. This extention do the same but a one click faster :) However significant disadvantage of extention is need to write down exact size of the photo. (solved! please see updated opinion in the bottom) Yes, you could do it once. However photos have different sizes and I prefer to post original sizes, it is inconvient to change size each time. I can't find a way to set up original size in extention. UPDATE: to save link with original size you should set 0 in parameter field. Increase rating to 5 stars!
  • (2018-02-09) Alexander Sanabria Quintero: lo mejor
  • (2017-11-15) Galda Hokejs: Did not work in the first day, but now it works!
  • (2017-10-03) bartek s: nie działa
  • (2017-08-02) Rolf Aronsson: Very useful extension. Can you make a "Google videos direct link" aswell?
  • (2017-07-05) Gene K: I initially gave this extension 5 stars because it worked flawlessly on my computer using Chrome. However, the linked images could not be seen by others on their computers, using any browser ... UNTIL I put the photos into a Shared Album. The author should note that requirement in his description.
  • (2017-05-26) Karol Gołuch: Nie działa.
  • (2017-05-02) D. de Wit: Sadly not working
  • (2017-03-04) Alex Frishman: Finally I can get those links easily from Google Photos

  • (2018-03-14, v:1.0) How to begin?
    Dear developer, I only want to have the possibility to create direct photo links in Google Photos. Unfortunately I'm no nerd and I don't even understand the nomencature you use on GitHub.com. Do I really have to sign up to GitHub to install the Add on? I can't host and review code, manage projects, and build software together...;-p Or is there an easier way to get GooglePhotosDirectLink? Is there anywhere a description for people like me? Please help me! Thank you! Best regards
