To some of you who haven’t noticed yet, Google took away access to the direct image URL. As for some people like me, we thought that we can no longer use google drive for hosting images. Google drive gives you a generous 15gb space if you have a gmail account. Compared to other email providers, this is as good as it’s going to get.

I found another way of getting the direct URL. You can visit the site http://gdurl.com and plugin the URL of the file, and it’ll generate the direct URL for you.
