How to create storage with public access

I am a newbie in Azure and I need to create blob storage for public access, so I will save picture there which would be accessed without any authorization. I will then deploy link adress to my devices and they will pick up it to use as a wall paper (Intune, Windows and Android).

Problem is, that I can't find instructions which would match this scenario. I have tried to this by my own, but failing with http access problems or permission denied.

    Check out this link here:

    You should be able to change the access level on the blob container to 'Bob (anonymous read access to blobs only)'.

    Kind regards

    @!Daniel Bradley I am afraid that is not so easy. Currently I have this option gray out even I am Global Admin. I have tried to create storage account in different ways and then option varies. I also see that Microsoft instructions do not match my options.
