Sixth trial

Can I still add a new picture from my albums at Photos? 

No problem, but does it stay after plubication?

Fifth trial

If I insert a picture from an album, does it connect to the full album when clicked. 

No, that does not work. 
Another trial with a picture from my Dropbox-album in the Archive: 

This picture is just shared with my wife  but picked from an "album" with the share-date as artificial name: 2017-06-08:

Even if that "album" was removed from Photos, the pictures stays here because it is stored in the special Blogger-album in the archive. 

That is even more mysterious with the movie below: that still seems to be in an "album" named 2016-12-01 in the selection panel, but the album does not exist anymore on Photos or in the Archive. 

But the movie does not play anymore...

Uploading a very small image (320px) from pc: 

This gives the same size as when chosen Normal. 

Does uploading a picture still work? 

Yes and this is the full size 2048px image not resized in the blog. 

This image is taken from a testalbum on Google Photos and the question is: what happens if that image in the testalbum is deleted? 

Then the picture does not disappear, but if it is removed from the Blogger-album in the Archive - then it disappears and can't be found anywhere anymore.

Fourth trial

What happens if I enter a link instead of a direct picture? 

This link is picked from a single image the screen and looks like this:

Also possible from some website, but then you must be carefull with copyrights. 
And there also came a warning on top like this: 

Enough for now!

Third trial

When an so-called shared-album is created on Photos, this album is not visible in the Archive, so probably it is impossible to insert some pictures here: 

But that is not true as you can see above. 
However: if a shared person adds some pictures of its own, these are not shown and can not be added to this blog. 

A few days later I did remove the shared album from my Photos and you see: the links are broken. So Blogger does not generate backupcopies in the special Blogger-album, but assumes that your albums will be there for eternity. 
That's stupid.

Second trial

Can an album disappear? 

Freshly uploaded via Picasa: 

Archieflink (private):

Now I am going to share this album via Photos to check if the album will disappear from the Archive. 

Done, but the album is still visible in the Archive, but does have status Limited now. The new link now is: 
Pierens shared

First trial

I setup this simple blog to check how things go with Google Photos etc. after the retirement of Picasaweb around August 1, 2016

This is just inserting a single photo from my computer: 


And this is inserting a few pictures from a public album in my Archive: 

And this is a pure url from a public album in my Archive (Picasaweb): 

Dropbox album uit het voormalige Picasaweb

And this is sharing link from the same album on Photos:

Just stop here for the first time since years.
