Picasaweb - reverting to the Picasa view not the Plus view

You'll notice that a recent change in the Picasaweb / Google Plus interaction is that Picasaweb albums and photos now redirect to their Plus equivalents. You might not like that because, for example, the geolocation information is missing, and also the thumbnails are much bigger.


The answer is to take the old picasaweb URL and add a "?noredirect=1" to it, for example, instead of 


https://plus.google.com/photos/104721696289765922296/albums/5739200664576060001?noredirect=1

which gets you


use 


https://picasaweb.google.com/104721696289765922296/TerrigalAndAvocaMay2012?noredirect=1


this instead, which gets you



If you want to send all your albums then send a URL such as


https://picasaweb.google.com/104721696289765922296?noredirect=1



where you replace the "104721696289765922296" with your own ID.

Thanks.. but it's really not worth it to have to do this just to look at an album.
