Google Photos Programming “API” Hack

When investigating using the python api for Google Photos it soon became apparent that it was no longer possible to add existing photos to an existing album.

The video shows how I managed to do this by recording http requests in Google Chrome and exporting to Curl Command.

You will have to export the request every time your logged in session expires but for my usecase this is not a problem.

I hope this helps someone.
