Image online 🌍

Display images from a webcam, Dropbox or other places online. PinToMind will retrieve the image which is online continuously as it is being updated. 

The image-online-post can only display files of the types PNG and JPG and must have an https-address.

The address you add must be complete and start with " https://" and end with "filename.jpg" (or png).
The Image online-post has the same display options as the image-post on PinToMind.

💡Image online posts can be used in various ways; webcam which displays traffic or any other place of interest. The post can also be used to display sales-statistics, weather data, energy consumption etc. which is added as a web address by other programs.
