Not immediate priority, but probably wouldn't be bad in a future release to either:
1. allow upload of image; or
2. support the major document storage systems (one drive, etc) and make it easy to navigate to and link existing image
It didn't work for me. When I share my photo on Googledrive it doesn't show the advanced tab. Have things changed already? I get a link that shows in my log that I can click to open my photo but it doesn't get imbedded in the log.
Your screen share is too small to read. Can you type out the link text we need to add in the log? I've figured out how to get my photo link id part. my link still doesn't open automatically. I have to click the link and it opens in a new window.
It's the same text provided above.

{"http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=YOUR ID HERE"| caption |img-250x300}
Cool beans! It's not the most elegant solution. vNext should have a way to handle images using our hosting, thus avoiding ever-changing services.
okay, so... i removed {" and "|caption .... and that works.
working link on Campaign background img: http://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1HawhpaUJcQUubADj9Cvbj341elGs3y_k

however inside a log entry, all i get is "caption" text and nothing else
