Where are the images stored for the image column?


As per the title, where are the images stored for the image column?

I’ve been trying to use google drive to store my images and then use the image url to display them in my tables but this just isn’t working.

I’m now thinking upload using Coda to the image column but I don’t like that I can’t see them in a file system on my mac for instance.

I would also like to change the folder of the Coda docs as its untidy.



Hi @Juanmata! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We store the images in our system alongside the rest of your document data. It would be a nice extension to the image column feature to be able specify a storage provider such as Google Drive.



Thats a shame, hopefully you can implement this soon as I think this will benefit everyone.



First - set the google drive folder that you are using to store images as “Public”

Second - In Coda, create a text column (GDrive URL) where you will paste the URL you get from Google drive when you hit the share button.

Third - In Coda, create a column formatted as Image URL and add this as the formula:

IMAGE((SUBSTITUTE(thisRow.[GDrive URL],“https://drive.google.com/open?id=","http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=”)),1)
