  1. Hopefully you are still responding to these comments. I have a related issue and I can't find a solution anywhere. I'm trying to insert an image in a google sheet using a file path. I have a list of 100+ file paths in a column (let's say column D) and I want the referenced images to appear in the next cell of column E. Normally would use =image("http://google.drive.…etc",4,50,100). How do I convert the filepath to the url so I can insert the image into the cell?

  2. The best way:

    Click on the URL, show the picture an in three dots at the right corner click on "embed item". Inside that code copy specific URL (with "preview" at the end). This is only DIRECT link. No change. You can you it everywhere (forums too).

    Remember only, that picture most shown for everyone (on the web)

    Have fun.

  3. I got the image put it on my drive exactly as the way you said. After several attempts I got it shared publicly and got the site to make a permalink. I then put the formula in Google Sheets with image=(url) still will not appear in cell as your prior video states. Very frustrating when you do everything right and it still won't work.

  4. Is there anyway to Copy an image in a Google sheet(=image(url)) cell and post it locally e.g In Numbers(Mac) or Openoffice?

    I want to be able to do this for multiple images. The workaround for a single image is to copy and paste it into Google Docs. Drag it to the desktop and then drag it onto numbers. This is way too cumbersome.

    Tks
