What are the different link types CloudApp has?

CloudApp has three different link types: share, direct and download.

 

1. Share links: https://cl.ly/2J0j2W1E2i3N

Use a share link when you would like to have an easily viewable page to access the file or image. These also auto-expand/unfurl in apps like Slack and HipChat to display a smaller version of the file in-line.

 

2. Direct links: https://cl.ly/2J0j2W1E2i3N/Screen%20Recording%202016-07-26%20at%2012.19%20PM.gif

Direct links are used to access a file directly and bypass the viewer page. You can use them to paste an image directly into an HTML code of your web page.

 

3. Download links: https://cl.ly/2J0j2W1E2i3N/download/Screen%20Recording%202016-07-26%20at%2012.19%20PM.gif

Download links are helpful when you want a link to automatically trigger a download and save to the user’s computer.
