The problem is that the attachment column in a SharePoint list can have none, one, or many files attached.  So there is no way to show a picture as an attachment to a list.  To show a picture in a list you need to create a picture column, which accepts only one picture for display.  That column doesn't actually store the image.  It stores the URL to where the image is stored, but shows it in the context of the list.  To do that in PowerApps you need to

  1. Store the actual uploaded file in a SharePoint Library
  2. Set the image URL column to point to the file in the library.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Attachmened file will display in list like this by default.

It's not supported to change it.

You could check its name when editting one specific item.

If you want to see its image, you need to click on its name.6272.png

As an alternative way, I suggest you use Picture or hyperlink column.

These two kinds of column can meet your demands.
