Google Photos is a completely free service for storing and sharing your digital photos and videos to the cloud storage. There is no restriction on the number of photos and videos you can upload as unlimited space is provided to every user who has a Google account. The only condition is that you can upload photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080P. Google Photos is one of the most advanced photo cloud storage services that have the option to search photos by face or objects present in them. In spite of various advanced features, it lacks a very basic thing that makes the website owners avoid them for storing media files.
Google Photos let you share the photos and videos with anyone with the help of the URLs associated with every media item you have stored. But there is no way to embed the media files directly into your website. This is a basic feature that is available in almost all photo storage services. Instead of going for any other service, you should stick with Google Photos as the following guide will help you to embed images from Google photos into your website completely.
