Bring back static URLs for image files. Currently they change every day.
Prior to the month of May, images files stored on OneDrive had static URLs. "View Original" displayed the image using a static, unchanging URL. You could use it to link images to blogs, forums, web-pages, etc.
Since May, posted images no longer get a static URL; it changes at least once a day. It is no longer possible to link an image to a blog because the link is only valid for less than 24 hours. OneDrive is no longer a viable cloud-service provider for image files.
Please try out the new embed experience for photos. You’ll see an “embed” option in the command bar with options for getting the right image size for your site. Let us know what you think!
"...we will respond to every suggestion that gets at least 100 votes."
Where is the response to this suggestion that passed the 100 mark within a day or two? This is a major problem for many users, yet OneDrive haven't even had the courtesy to acknowledge that something fundamental changed.
What is the point of image hosting if you can't link to it? An absolute farce!
I am in HK and I have the same problem here....OneDrive used to be the best.... please get it fixed~
static URLs for image useful for everybody, hoping improve this URLs problem asap !
This is insane I have been using one drive for a while now and never had an issue till this situation. If its not resolved soon I'll be forced to change to a different cloud based hosting site and I don't want to do that. please fix this asap
Google Drive It seems to have the same problem...

Perhaps that could be solved by extending the Embed feature to let you choose whether to generate an iframe, bbcode or pure http url instead of only iframe as it is now.
Wow... That's a bummer. I used OneDrive very often for imagehosting. Such a pity they made this decision...
Good to know someone had the exact same issue and has been trying to communicate it for a month... thank you. The issue seems to be international (I'm a Japanese user, and I've found similar reports in the Japan forum).
