This article is a quick guide to help you embed images in google colab markdown without mounting your google drive!
Google colab is a cloud service that offers FREE python notebook environments to developers and learners, along with FREE GPU and TPU. Users can write and execute Python code in the browser itself without any pre-configuration. It offers two types of cells: text and code. The ‘code’ cells act like code editor, coding and execution in done this block. The ‘text’ cells are used to embed textual description/explanation along with code, it is formatted using a simple markup language called ‘markdown’.
If you are a regular colab user, like me, using markdown to add additional details to your code will be your habit too! While working on colab, I tried to embed images along with text in markdown, but it took me almost an hour to figure out the way to do it. So here is an easy guide that will help you.
The first step is to get the image into your google drive. So upload all the images you want to embed in markdown in your google drive.
Google Drive gives you the option to share the image via a sharable link. Right-click your image and you will find an option to get a sharable link.
On selecting ‘Get shareable link’, Google will create and display sharable link for the particular image.
