Works perfectly in text mode. Next steps : – add a toolbar button in tinyMCE – option to build a gallery with selected photos. I can help on testing if needed. Thanks!

Good luck getting it installed and working correctly. The installation instructions are not really helpful at all. There needs to be step by step instructions for what you need to do to enable the Google Picker API.
