2 How to display pictures from Google Photos albums on your New Tab page
We often recommend add-ons that make your new tabs look more interesting by displaying photos of landscapes, animals or works of art, for example, but sometimes there’s no substitute for your own digital snaps. A new Chrome extension called Photos New Tab ( bit.ly/photos431) brings your favourite memories to your New Tab page by presenting random pictures from your Google Photos account. You can tell it which albums to use (so you can stop potentially embarrassing content popping up unexpectedly) by clicking Configure and selecting the appropriate albums from the list. Naturally, you need to give the extension access to your Google Photos account for this to work, but your photos are downloaded straight into your browser, so your privacy won’t be compromised.
