Hosting an Image from Drive

Upload your image to Drive as you would with any file.
In sharing settings, go to 'Advanced' and set the view to 'public' and click save:


On the sharing settings screen, copy the URL of the image:

Go to and paste in the URL of the image and click 'create permalink':

When the next screen loads, look down to where it says 'standard url' and copy the new URL which can be used to embed the picture wherever you choose:

(You will also notice a checkbox asking if you allow the image file to be shared with the general public. Untick if you do not want this to happen!)
