Any idea why? Maybe I must upload in another public place....

  • what is the url to one of the images? If it opens in your browser, then it is a problem with the configuration – toms Dec 17 '15 at 4:30

The image URLs must be direct links to the images. URLs such as Flickr links, which are loading the image "inside their site", but without being it an explicit link for the image itself, won't work. This happens with a lot of different image hosting sites. Dropbox or Google Drive also load an image viewer instead of returning the image itself.

In Imgur for example, you have the "direct link" and the "share link". The share link loads the image inside the imgur site, so it won't work in the infowindows, but the direct link will, as it just retrieves the image resource.

  • Hi, Thanks in advance for your help but It still does´t work. The image is on dropbox: dropbox.com/s/hw15f47nubvwybq/P1.png?dl=0, I can load it directly from internet but don´t from cartodb info window. I don´t understand properly toy answer, do you have any code example?. Thanks, Juanjo – geodesman Dec 24 '15 at 12:58
  • Notice that your URL is opening the image inside the Dropbox site. This one would be a direct URL: photos-1.dropbox.com/t/2/… – iriberri Dec 24 '15 at 13:53
  • Thanks a lot!! but how Can I transform my URL into the new one as your example? – geodesman Dec 24 '15 at 14:17
  • You'd want to use your Dropbox Public folder. Though, 2017-2018 I think they are changing their policy for displaying some things like webpages. Another option is GitHub, using the raw file url. – GIS Danny Sep 26 '16 at 11:23
