How to make images not blurry

I created an expenses app that uses CDS to store my images.  The user can use their phone camera to take and store images of receipts for each line item added.  In a scrollabel gallery view the images are small squares and look fine, but you can't read them.  When I try to make a new screen that uses those names from the gallery as a data source and enlarge the media it is extremely blurry.  How can I make it so that the image is larger and the receipt is readable.

 

When a user takes the photo the image is very large and looks fine, but after submitting the form I feel like the image is maybe being compressed when stored?  Surely I can get it large enough to be viewable.

Re: How to make images not blurry

HI @Black_Magic100 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the quality of the uploaded images has been reduced when you view it within your app?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think this issue may be related to the "Optimize images for upload" within the PowerApps Mobile App in your Mobile device.

The user @Deriooo has faced similar issue with you, please check my response within the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Attachment-quality-from-CDS/m-p/278998#M81157

 

In default, the "Optimize images for upload" setting would be turned on within your PowerApps Mobile App. When you upload pictures from your local mobile device, the uploaded pictures would be compressed.6.JPG

 

 

Please consider take a try to turn off the "Optimize images for upload" setting within your PowerApps Mobile App, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.

Re: How to make images not blurry

Unfortunately, I tried that and it did not change a thing.  The quality is attrocious and when I say attrocious I mean pixelated to the point you can't see anything.

 

I think it may be how I am displaying the image in a larger format i.e. where I am pulling it in from? (It should be stored in CDS as an image type)

 

If you take a look at this app: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-showcase/enkaytech-expense-reporting-and-reimbursement... I literally recreated this app by myself and when I use this app the images look fine when "blown up", but on my own I am doing something wrong.

I am currently dissecting microsofts "Site Inspection" app to achieve what I am looking to do. https://web.powerapps.com/webplayer/app?source=portal&screenColor=rgba(251%2c+101%2c+60%2c+1)&appId=...

 

Any help is still appreciated.

Hi @Black_Magic100 ,

Yeah, you are right. Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think you could store your Image data within a Excel Table stored in your OneDrive for Business folder or OneDrive folder.

 

More details about storing Image data within a Excel table, please check and see the following article:
