In the portfolio section of my personal portfolio page: (link here: https://codepen.io/Eddie_Romans/full/OmYxaL/), I am using some screenshots of other pens that I have uploaded to Dropbox;
I guess that by being the “owner” of the link, the portfolio section makes the images visible to me, as I scroll down the page. However, by accessing the same page with my mobile phone, the link to the other projects stays there, but the images disappear.
I think it may be due to the fact that by changing device, the link to the dropbox is no longer valid.
So i think I may be the only one seeing those images. Any tips or suggestions to make those links accessible to all?
Dropbox supports public folders (viewable to anyone). You need to set the permissions on the folder.
I used DropBox for the city images in my weather app.
Just upload your images to www.imgbb.com
I have not used Dropbox for images, but postimage.io is really good! They provide a hotlink for websites, forums, etc… I usually just copy the image source url and use that in my pens.
Thank everyone! I’ll check the different options for sure
You can do it with Dropbox, if you want to stick with that. Check out this doc: https://www.dropbox.com/help/desktop-web/force-download
Thanks man! I just switched to www.imgbb.com, but i’ll give it a read in case I’ll find myself using Dropbox
Dropbox is bad for images because always disable any public content with big traffic.
