How to create public image URLs for CSV or data import

How to create a public URL of your images while creating a CSV?

You need to ensure the image URLs you are adding into your CSV are public URLs.

You can create a public URL for images in the following ways:

1. Pull an image URL from your website

If you are hosting a web page, you can add your images there and create your public URLs from the host.

2. Create a public URL using Dropbox

  • Upload your images from your computer to your Dropbox
  • As you upload your images to Dropbox, hover over 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 the clipboard.


Note: If there are no parameters (like 'dl=0' or 'dl=1') at end of your image URL, then add the parameter '&raw=1'

3. Create a Public URL using Google Drive

  • Upload an image from your computer to your Google Drive account. 
  • As you upload your image to Google Drive, hover over your image and Right-click on it. You will see a 'Share' button. Click it.       
  • A pop-up window will appear. At the bottom right corner click on “Advanced”.
