Flippity is a free service for making games, flashcards, and timelines with Google Sheets. I’ve been using and recommending it for years. In fact, my posts about using it to make board games and memory games were two of the most popular posts in all of 2020. That’s probably why I get a lot of questions about using Flippity. Yesterday, I answer questions from two readers who were looking for help using images in Flippity templates. To help them, I made this short video.
The important thing to know about using images in Flippity templates is that the images must be publicly available at URLs ending in PNG or JPG. It’s because of that requirement that using images stored in a Google Drive folder or a private Flickr album won’t work (a public Flickr image can work, however). In this short video I give the examples of using Pixabay and Wikipedia as the sources of images to use Flippity game templates.
