Generate direct link to Google Drive image

If you want to create a direct link to a public image on Google Drive you may use Permanent link generator that I crated for my personal use.

Note (28/09/2016): Google does not support this anymore!

Where is it?

The tool is available as a simple HTML page here: Permalink

The source code: Permalink Source Code

How to use it?

  • Upload an image to the Google Drive, locate it, right click and select Share option

  • Click Advanced and make sure the image can be viewed by anyone on the web

  • Copy the Link to share and paste in the Permalink tool

  • Click Generate Permalink to get links to the image
  • Share the link or use it on your website!


The way the links are generated is described here:
