Want to add image to linkedin app, but don’t have https

Well now, haven’t we all been super excited about creating social logins and such, especially with HybridAuth’s awesomeness.

So, you build out your app, your URLs, callbacks, implement the library, and when you try to set up the app, BAM! Your logo has to have an HTTPS protocol. Rats.

No worries, simplicity to the rescue. All you need is a Dropbox account. No, really, Dropbox. The file sharing account.

* Signup for Dropbox. It’s free, if you don’t already have an account.
* Create a public folder.
* Add your logo to the public folder.
* On your PC, or Mac, or within the app, copy the public link. Right click the image and select “Copy public link”.
* Take the copied link and paste it in your linkedin image field.
* Done!

I hope this helps you guys out as much as it helped me. This comes in handy if you don’t feel like making the trip to ssl land, or are developing locally, but need to use the linkedin app.

Cheers!
