Does Google Drive allows to hotlink the images? For example, I can upload images there and link to them on my website? Will it violate their terms and condition?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

You could read the terms and conditions maybe? However why would you host images on Google Drive? – Allan Kimmer Jensen Apr 30 '12 at 12:06
I'm fairly confident that this will not violate the terms of service. However, this is what Picasa Web Albums is for. – William Jackson May 22 '12 at 16:09
How do you do it? I need to insert these images into a Google Sheets sheet. My question: webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/86081/… – Jonny Oct 30 '15 at 9:26

You can do it and it will not violate the terms and conditions at all.

Just make sure that the "Share Options" of the image is "Anyone who has a link" and "Does not require sign-in".

It will be a violation only if you do not have copyright of the particular image(s) in question.
