Insert image not working


(Alex Nan) #1

hello people, I can't seem to insert image from my Google Drive. My link is like this - ! [ ] ( http:// drive.google. com/open?id=1-VBZbm2YyVMk4Mlk3_9cuvLPP2jUkdgz) - also tried without !
- Explorer shows the small thumbnail with x on it like when the real image doesn't load.
- Chrome, doesn't show at all.
How could I upload/insert my images in Description ?

@AlexNan at the moment, we do not store images for description. What you can do in description/comment/annotation is reference an image that is available through an URL.
So you have to store your asset somewhere and then use the markdown syntax e.g. ![](https://website.com/path/to/img.jpg).

It seems that your are including the page containing the image, instead of the image itself.

The URL you should use should be https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/CAMdN-3QnUUhFFiplEx5cIsCbjC120_Vb-cVrHpTn1ybfVtuSVYUrPZODS7ed9GURqWhLH7O_teEROouC1cy=w2560-h1284-rw, but I'm not sure that Google Drive allows hotlinking.

I think it might have to link directly to the file, ending in .jpg, .png, ...
