How to share an image from Google Drive

My Favorite Shop allows you to share images from a valid internet address or by sharing an image link from Google Drive. In this guide we are going to see how to share images on My Favorite Shop from a Google Drive account.

If you don’t know what Google Drive is, it is a free storage space in its first 15 GB provided by Google when you have an gmail email account.

First and foremost, we must bear in mind that the shared links will be visible to anyone who accesses the link, so, in order to maintain our privacy, it is stongly recommended to establish a folder with the images that we want to share publicly, either the logo of our company, or the photos of the products that we want to offer or show in My Favourite Shop App catalogue.
