    Are you referring to a Google Drive link? Please take note that it should be the "direct link" and not the "shareable link".

    Google Drive doesn't allow you to use the uploaded files for hotlinking. You can use this workaround I found on this forum. Here's an example:

    https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B2chffFtbjO2Z2otNEF5cl9US2s

    File ID from Google Drive

    Here's a guide on how to get the File ID:

    1. In Google Drive, right click on the image file and then select the "Share" option.

    2. Copy the shareable link.

    3. Paste it in a Text Editor or Notepad. In the link, you will see the File ID.

    4. Here's the direct link now:

    https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B2chffFtbjO2S2VMSHlyUTltOWs

     

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
