Google Docs: Adding Images to a Spreadsheet

One of the joys of having just gone Blu is maintaining completely thorough records of my library (unlike my DVD library, which went largely unrecorded until I discovered this site and felt a lot more comfortable about my desires to track this stuff!). I'm using DVD Profiler, yes, but I've also created a Google Docs spreadsheet; it's linked in my signature. Anyway, I'd like to add thumbnails for each title, but I haven't been able to do so yet.

To add an image, I'm supposed to go to the specific field and click "Add Image," which then gives a pop-up asking for a URL for the online image. I've tried this, but then nothing happens. So far, I've tried linking to art posted on blu-ray.com and amazon.com, and neither is working for me.

Re: Google Docs: Adding Images to a Spreadsheet

Works for me:


Try uploading the images you want to imageshack or similar, rather than hotlinking to Amazon and such.

Note that the image doesn't actual sit inside the spreadsheet. It floats above it.
