    I searched around for a bit and wasn't able to find this covered here... but if I missed it someone can correct me.

    As a regular Google Drive user, and someone not ready to commit to setting up a Flickr account, I was trying to figure out if there was a way to embed images from Google Drive.

    The solution is a little cumbersome, but I gave it a quick test and it seems to work. For those of you in the same boat as me, try it out and see how it works. From my test, it appears you need to right-click the Google Drive image, open it in Google Docs, and then modify the Google Doc URL as mentioned in the article. In doing so, it seems to create a Google Doc 'version' of the jpg... which apparently I think you can delete afterwards.

    Ok I guess it might be more than "a little cumbersome"...:biggrin:
    If there's any easier way to do this please enlighten me... maybe the answer is setup a Flickr... lol
