Google drive images not imported

We are a small soccer club and wanted to use the rise storage. Since it will soon not be free anymore we decided to place our pictures on google drive. I followed all the instructions given by your company to incorporate pictures into a presentation. I did put the security of those files on google drive to share public and copied the link into my presentation. Nothing to see and the viewer takes 20 sec to start and no picture to see. I did sent in google drive a mail to another account with the link to that same picture and guess by clicking on that link the picture is shown. 
What else do I have to do to make this possible?

Normally the links provided by Google Drive are to a web page that contains the image in it.  For the Image Item to work correctly, you would need the direct link to that image, rather than the page it is in. You can try modifying the URL you use similar to the method mentioned here.  If this does work for you, please let us know.

Thanks.

To use Google Drive as a host the links are https://googledrive.com/host/id/filename. So in your case it would be https://googledrive.com/host/0B6TiTVvCQxXRTmx1OWF6TkVvU3M/inktentoner 2.JPG 
You can also find the hosting link by opening the "Details and activity" panel in Google Drive and looking under "Details" tab for the "Hosting" section.

Thanks for the tip Nathan.
Hi Nathan, what will it be in my case with https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7XbLWh3ei4mdnctUldhUXJxWUk/view?usp=sharing to use google drive as a host? I tried  https://googledrive.com/host/0B7XbLWh3ei4mdnctUldhUXJxWUk/ballonnen.jpg but this does not work...

It appears to only be shared with those who have a link. Sharing needs to be set to "Public on the web".

I want to use Google drive also for picture storage.  I can't get this picture to show on my display.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4vhJUWTu4hmckJfck5IWmtCWDQ/view?usp=sharing

I've changed the  setting to https://googledrive.com/host/0B4vhJUWTu4hmckJfck5IWmtCWDQ/BCA_Round_Icon.png. Any Thoughts.

If I try just https://googledrive.com/host/0B4vhJUWTu4hmckJfck5IWmtCWDQ/ that works for me (I see the BCA logo in the Presentation).  If I do https://googledrive.com/host/0B4vhJUWTu4hmckJfck5IWmtCWDQ/BCA_Round_Icon.png then I don't see the image in the Presentation.

Based on the directions above, not sure why this is the case.  Its possible the file name itself is not correct (typo, etc).
