Linked Photo Albums

May 12, 2018

I’m trying something new on my photos site. Starting with the NC Arboretum album, photos will now be hosted at Google Photos. This has a number of benefits:

  • Users can comment on photos
  • I can now embed videos in the album
  • Nicer viewing experience on all devices
  • Simplifies the import process for me

New albums will still show up on my photos site, but they will now be links to the external albums. The RSS feed for albums should still work to track what I post.

I’m not yet sure how to handle the “favorites” section of the photos site. I’d like to be able to point to favorite photos as I take them, but how to do that is still to be determined.

Let me know what you think of this new setup. I’m looking forward to giving it a try, and I have a backlog of photo albums to post.
