The benefits of adding a Google photos ALBUM to trelllo

PJRanson March 10, 2024

I use trello for many things. 

  • Personal organisation
  • Project management tool
  • A simple CRM/Sales funnel
  • Archive indexing
  • GTD methodology


I use the Google Drive Power up to reference folders in my GTD filing structure on G-Drive within cards associated to things like bank accounts, (for statements), client related references (agreements, estimates, invoices, CAD designs) and so on - it's a fairly robust holistic system that's integrated with my backend digital filing structure, and really rate Trello for it's integration with other other systems, like OneDrive and GDrive etc...

I make and fit cabinets, (amongst other things) and find Trello a great way to corral various items of content together under one list, but sometimes lists can get over-bloated with images or files, so I use cards with power-ups to externally reference content as described above, I find this a neat way to access content on the move, especially when speaking to new clients and leads. 

With this in mind, It would be really useful to have an option to enable Google photo ALBUMS - and then simply link that album to a card... 

I use Google albums to keep photographic records of projects, so being able to link those albums into Trello would be a great option. 

Does anything like this exist?

I know I can copy individual images directly into a card from my device, and that's great for the odd one or two images, but if I wanted an entire albums worth (100s of shots) then that becomes far too cumbersome.

In theory I could copy those photos to the project folder on Google Drive, but that's then doubling up on cloud storage and I'd rather not do that. 

Any ideas would be welcomed.

You can link Google Albums and individual photos in the description of cards, using smartlinks.  They will also show up in the same way if you paste the link into a list. What it doesn't do, like Google Drive links is allow previews within Trello:

Nope... that’s perfect - thanks Mike - I’m surprised I didn’t even try that...
