How do I display an image column from my SharePoint list?

Hi everyone,

 

I'm having issues displaying my images from my SharePoint list. (Sorry for this nooby question, but Google isn't my friend..)

The Column Type of my list is "Image" so its not the "Link or Image" Column with the name "Picture".

I only found solutions with the "Link or Image" column type. But for my specific case I have to use the "Image" column type.

 

I tried the following commands but nothing worked...

 

Image = LookUp('MySPOList'; Title = "XYZ"; Picture)

Image = LookUp('MySPOList'; Title = "XYZ"; Picture.Image)

Image = LookUp('MySPOList'; Title = "XYZ"; Picture.Value)

Image = Picture.Thumbnail.Large

 

I have absoluetly no idea how I could display images with the SharePoint Image Column Type.

 

Thanks in advance 🙂

I can confirm that this works now. This is a nice addition to PowerApps functionality. Thank you @ganeshsanap for the heads up.

Not yet working in my environment. Just to make sure I'm doing it right... In a gallery, for example:

 

Image = ThisItem.NameOfImageColumn and not ThisItem.Thumbnail?

@Sefie :

ThisItem.Image gives you a record.

Use

ThisItem.Image.Full

to get the image.

Everything else didn't work for me (like thisitem.Image.medium)

@max81 Thanks for the clarification. The feature is probably not rolled out to my environment yet then.

@Sefie: could be. It was activated for our tenant today.

I will recommend our users not to use it. It is read only and display the image works at the moment only with the "full" property. So depending on image sizes, a gallery will be loaded really slow.

It was also activated in our tentant today. In our case the other properties like, Medium or Large are working fine so far.

Hi everyone

 

I can now view images of this type in Power Apps for existing items which is great.  However, I can't see any way of adding images in my apps?  Adding directly from the SharePoint list gives you the ability to click Add an image:

In Power Apps the image field only seems to be read-only.  I've tried using an add image control to pass data to this column but this doesn't seem to save the image to my list item.  Has anyone found a way around this or are we only able to add images using this column directly in the SP list?

 

@gjayne1984 ,

Correct as far as I can see - you not only cannot add in Power Apps, but also you need the "native" SharePoint View/Edit form to add one in SharePoint. This means if you have an integrated app as your menu, you cannot add files in SharePoint. Easier to simply attach them and if necessary, filter by file name to get the one you want . . .

@WarrenBelz thanks for confirming.  For now I'll have to stick with using Power Automate in the background to take the attached image and upload to SharePoint etc.  Hopefully the ability to use an add image link in Power Apps to replicate the native SharePoint form functionality will come at some point.
