Google Drive: A Simple option for hosting high resolution photos for your website


Several years ago, I was just getting started on web development and learned how to host a static web site on Google Drive at no extra cost. This feature has been removed, but Google Drive still lets you upload your full resolution photos (and with a little know-how) you can get your website builder to pull it in.


Building an html image (img) tag

Some website hosts won’t let you insert an image from a URL, but will let you edit the html directly (this may be called “html mode” or “advanced mode”).

There are lots of other options for controlling how an image renders in html (including placement), but these are the basics. I suggest you check out W3 School’s How To tutorial for more html and image controls.
