Display "person or group" picture

I am trying to display the picture for a "Person or Group" in my app and have run into a couple issues.  The Person or Group data is sourced from a SharePoint list field of that datatype.

 

Image [fx] = ThisItem.lv9b.Picture (no idea why the Person or Group SharePoint field named "Lead" got coded as "lv9b" but thats for another day...)

 

(1) The picture displays properly when I run preview or run the app in Dynamics 365 in a Chrome browser but does not appear in a mobile app (iOS and Windows both tested).  I created a link to open an email when clicking the image and this works everywhere, but the image simply does not display in mobile.

 

Preview (image displays but I intentionally hide it here bc it is of a person):

Screenshot1.JPG

 

Mobile (nothing displayed):

(2) The image displayed is pretty low quality - basically only usable as a thumbnail sized image.  If I try to make it bigger, it is highly pixelated.  However, when I view the People or Group pictures in SharePoint, they are high resolution.

 

Is there anything that I can do to fix the mobile is and/or pull higher resolution pictures from the data source?

 

Thanks!

Re: Display "person or group" picture

Hi, thanks for reporting this. 

Can you please send a session ID so we can investigate that better?

 

Another question is: what's the image file format you're using? JPG?

Re: Display "person or group" picture

I apologize for the delay.  The PDF viewer limitations have moved this way down the priority list since I cannot put together a meaningful enterprise solution until I dynamically display PDFs stored in SharePoint...

 

Here is the session:

Session ID: a4036cc8-8a02-e95e-a822-ae61554637b0
PowerApps 2.0.730

 

I'll mention that the pictures do not show up at all anymore.  Not in development screens, not in preview screens, not in browser, not in apps.

 

Your help is appreciated!
