    I have had a picasaweb account for ages and many photos stored there. Prior to updating to Lollipop I was able to see all of these albums in the gallery app. Now that the gallery app is replaced with google plus photos I can no longer see any of my picasaweb photos. When I click on settings and select "add account" I am prompted to create a public google plus profile, which I don't currently have, and don't ever want.

    Is there any way to see my picasaweb (now google plus photos I guess) photos on my phone without creating a public google plus profile?

    Have you tried looking on your PC? Perhaps you can at least download a copy of your photos.

    Yes, I'm able to access the photos on my PC and can download them, however it was really handy being able to access the photos from my phone so that I could show them, post them, or send them to people, without having to store them on my phone (I have a lot of photos and not enough storage space). Now I have no means of quickly sharing a photo from my phone unless I log into google photos using chrome and then manually download the photo onto my phone. Would love to know if there's any other means of doing this with Lollipop as this is a huge loss of functionality for me.

    You could possibly download all your pictures, then upload to a cloud service of your choice.
