Configuring Access to your Google Drive Public Folder

In order to optimize social emails (to include photos not as attachments, but as inline images), Journ social emails link to those photos in your Google Drive where Journ uploads them. For this to work, the folder in your Google Drive named "Journ Public Folder" must be configured to be open to the web. Here are the instructions for doing that if you do not know how.

First get your google drive showing in a web browser. You can get there from your gmail, or just go directly to Log in with your gmail account and password.

Select the folder titled:  "Journ Public Folder" and right click on it. Then click on the "Share" menu item.  This is what it should look like.

Now click on the Advanced link in the bottom right.

Now click on the "Change" link over to the right of "Private..."

Now click on "On - Public on the web".
Now your emails should work in the optimized way.
