Attaching Photos to records

I am trying to build an app with a list of volunteers and their photos.

I am using an "Add Picture" control so that when adding the photos they can either use a stored picture or take a photo.

I can't put it all together. I can take a picture but I'm having trouble uploading it as an attachment to the record and then displaying it as a photo in their record.

Can anyone help me or point me to a tutorial or sample the does this exact thing? I looked at the Site Inspection App but couldn't make sense of it. I would rather not use flows if I can help it

Hi @peter5164 ,

You have started on the right path with the attachment idea - forget the add picture control and simply attach the photo. You can then display it in an image control a custom card (form) or simply in a gallery with

Last(ThisItem.Attachments).Value

I would accept it as the solution, but I can't find it anywhere!
