You need to make sure the image URLs' you are adding into your CSVs' are public URLs'. Then only they will be supported while bulk scheduling.
If you are hosting a web page you can add your images there and create your public URLs' from the host
or there are 2 other ways you can create public URLs' is
- Creating link using Dropbox (preferable and less time consuming)
- Creating link using Google Drive
1. Creating a public URL using Dropbox
- Upload your images from computer to your Dropbox
- As you upload your images to Dropbox, hover to your image and click on the Share button.
- A pop-up window will appear where you need to click on the Create a link button.
- Click on the Copy link button and your link will be copied to clipboard.
- Open a new tab and paste the copied link there. You'll find the parameter dl=0 at the end of the link. Now you need to make sure you add a parameter "&raw=1" after dl=0 to make the URL a public URL.
For e.g. Your link is after pasting it into a new tab:
and now you need to make it:
- So after adding the parameter "&raw=1" it becomes a public URL and you can add that link in your CSV in the second column.
Note: If there are no parameters(dl=0 or dl=1 such kind of parameters) at end of your image URL please add this parameter ?raw=1
2. Creating link using Google Drive
- Upload your images to Google Drive.
- As you upload your images, click on the Share button
- A pop-up sharing window will open. Makes sure you change the setting of your link sharing and select On-Public On the Web and click on Save button.
- Click on Copy Link button.
- As you copy the link, go to technorange.com, a direct link generator.
- Paste your copied link in the 'Enter Share Link' box provided and click on Generate button.
- A Direct Download link will be created. Copy this URL and paste in the second column of your CSV.
- Public URL of your google drive images is now ready and you can add these public links in the CSV for bulk upload of images.
