There are many ways to add images to your app, but we recommend drag-and-drop!
You can drag-and-drop images where you want them to appear in your app. This will upload the image to Glide and write a URL into your spreadsheet:
But before we do this, we need to prepare our sheet so that Glide knows where to add the links to the images it hosts for you.
This is super easy, we just add a column in our sheet called image, photo, picture, “crayon masterpiece”... whatever you want.
Google Sheets has an
IMAGE formula to display images in cells. This formula is not supported in Glide—
IMAGE(URL) will not work, but
You can use Dropbox share links to display images:
You can also use share links for images in Google Drive in your Google Sheets as images within Glide.
Open Share settings for the image.
Anyone with the link can view the file.
Copy the link.
Paste it into your sheet.
Upload the image to Imgur (click "New post" in the top left), and once the image is uploaded, right click on it, select "Copy address", and then paste it into your sheet.
