maybe you need to put the file into the correct folder of the external app at owncloud/apps/external/img?

this is great that it solves your issue as i just guessed this by looking into the folder structure of the app. I think it is strange that they don’t explain this in their documentation:

Maybe you could open an issue at so that they could improve their documentation of that app?
