Hi @Anonymous ,

I'm afraid it's not supported to display an image file directly in PowerApps currently.

I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious advice will be very helpful for our work.

Here are two alternative way for your reference:

1)download the image fields to your compter and upload it to PowerApps.

(File->Media)74_LI.jpg

save the images to one collection

ClearCollect(test,{value:'1'},{value:'2'},{value:'3'})      (1,2,3 is my images name)

Then, set the gallery's Items to the collection name.

 

2)create an excel file, save images in it.

save image to a column named [image]

Then you could use the excel as data source and display the images in gallery directly.

Here's a doc about it for your reference:

Unfortunately, there is no way to connect to individual files from within PowerApps like that.  You could use that same flow to get the file contents and pass it back to PowerApps, but direct access from within will not be available.

 

Sorry that doesn't give you an out-of-the-box solution, but I hope it answers your question.
