    I am trying to link images in Image Picker widget from a folder in my GDrive but they are not loading. I have set permissions to share with anyone who has the link.

    Thanks

    Good day!

    If you are going to use Image Picker widget, you would need to get the specific or direct link from the photo itself that you want to be downloaded.

    You can create a link from the photo itself through these steps:

    1. Open the Google Photos website by going to the following link: photos.google.com.
    2. Once here, select the photos and videos you wish to share with anyone.
    3. Once selected, click on the Share button on the top right hand corner.
    4. Now click on Get link.

    Hope this works!

    Hi Ashley,


    You can follow these steps to share images from GDrive to Image Picker.


    1-Make sure you enabled sharing permissions to anyone for image file.

    2- Now we will use some parts of the sharable link. This is our full link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1g_iuPI7hd_1Wnx8xFCfDTw8TsoxRHkB3/view?usp=sharing


    We will only use the part in red background.


    Our link to paste into image picker will be: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1g_iuPI7hd_1Wnx8xFCfDTw8TsoxRHkB3


    You can paste your file id after this part: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=


    Thank you.
