Several years ago it was relatively easy to upload a slideshow to blogger using Picasa Web Albums, and your tutorial of course.  But now with Google+ this does not seem possible.  I’ve researched several options, but all seem to be complicated.  All the articles I’ve read on Google seem to be “old news.”  I would like to embed a slide show for each post rather than take up a lot of space with pictures.  This would be especially helpful for a new blog I am attempting to construct for my RV group.  I would prefer a regular slide show over a movie.  Also, I’m fooling around with Google Drive, and it does some strange things – for me, at least.

Carol,

That feature to embed a slideshow is still available to your Google+ photos IF you switch to the Picasa Web Albums interface. Here’s an article that explains how:

Check it out and let me know if that helps.

The other options would be to build a slideshow using Photo Story 3 or Movie Maker then upload as a video. If you used that technique, you can even add music and/or narration.

I was not able to upload the Picasa Web Album previously because of a setting on the album.  I just changed from “View by me only” to “Limited to Links Only”  or “Public”  (or words to that effect).  Then the program allowed me to embed the HTML code.  So another problem solved.
