Need Help Sharing Google Albums

When it was Picasa, I could share something like picasa.com/name and it would take you to the top level of my albums. Now with Google Photos, it's a generic https://photos.google.com/albums/. Click it and you'll be brought to Google's sign in page. Does anyone know how to create a link to the top level of my shared albums so I can share them all at once, like Picasa? Thanks.

From what I remember, and just checked, the albums should still be there from the picasa days.

1. go to photos.google.com, you should see all your pictures, on the left hand side there is a menu of choices, one of them is albums, click on that
2. on the albums page you see all of your albums displays, or you can make a new one.
3. click on the album you want to share, it will then open, in the top right hand corner there will be a bunch of icons, one looks like a < with dots on the ends and point, click on that, and it will ask you with whom you want to share, or if you want, get the link to the album.
In my case, i copied my Dakar album link for the example https://goo.gl/photos/o1FKhhG8xQxrH9639
post that in your thread, and the link will take you to the album you specified.

Let me know if that works, if not, I will try and do a walk through

Rick

Hi Rick. Thanks for the tutorial. I have already accomplished that much. I want to share all the albums with one link, as I used to do with Picasa. With the one Picasa link it would take you to the top level and you would see all my albums at once - like you see your Google albums. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I'm still trying to get that done. Thanks.

it does seem that only individual albums can be shared, maybe contacting google, and see if they have a suggestion, I didn't see a method to share from the albums only page, only individual albums.

I played around with the old Picasa link a little and with the help of Google, I found out how to do it. Here are my albums.
