I want to share photos with family and friends who do not necessarily have Google+ accounts.

In Picasa I could save photos as Private so they just needed the Private Link.

But I don't see that option in Google+.

When viewing a Google+ album, click on "shared X" and you will get a lightbox where you can either directly enter email addresses of those without G+ accounts. They will get emails to view the album. Or you can use a direct link.

  • Please update the instructions: Click Share Privately right below the Album title. Aug 19, 2014 at 21:29
  • @ClayNichols I put "shared X" because it could be multiple different values.
