Trying to link to image in email signature.  Link works on its own but shows red x when using link to image

instead of using an embedded file with company logo in my email signature, i am trying to use the "link to image" feature.  I have the logo image in a publicly shared Google drive folder.  (I also tried OneDrive and it had the same result.)

Though the link works if i paste it into the URL bar, when i "link to image" i get a box with a red x that says, "cannot display image at this time."  The same result if I insert a link in a Word doc.

I have tried many things, always with the same result.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

External images are often blocked in email.  Even when they are allowed, you normally have to 'ok' them before they will display.  That is done to prevent tracking without your permission by advertisers.

It is not just an email issue, It also happens if I link to an image in Word and other apps.  And, even when i'm just creating a document I haven't sent yet.
