Quick Hack to host images

Personally, I would not use this extensively, but comes handy for the odd image/icon you need to host somewhere

e.g. Hosting a little BAG logo for a customised signature (such as the one underneath my picture on the left nav bag of this site)

  • Save the image in Google Drive (a png file tends to work fine everywhere)
  • Find the Folder ID on Google Drive

Hosting images on Google Drive

  • Build a Hosting URL concatenating:
    • https://googledrive.com/host/
    • The folder ID on Google Drive + /
    • The file name (better name it with extension, so it’s easy to locate later)

Get it off your chest... !!
