Using imgur.com to host images

if Flickr and Instagram don't seem like the right fit for hosting images for your Timeline, you can use the free image hosting service imgur.com

Uploading images is easy, but at this time, TimelineJS doesn't know how to turn the URL for the page which shows your image into a URL that can be used to include only that image on a slide. Uploading images on Imgur is pretty straightforward. Once you've done that, copy the "Direct Link" and use that in the "media" column of your TimelineJS spreadsheet.

    Hey, I would recommend to use a better image hosting site : www.uploadsheep.com , it works faster and no registration is required. ;)

    Hi, imgur direct link is working on the timeline only when the particular image has already been accessed previously on that browser. Else console shows a 403 Forbidden error. Please see this issue filed : https://github.com/NUKnightLab/TimelineJS3/issues/545 and requesting authors to update this page if the issue persists.
