Please Help - Power Apps Browse Gallery Images

I have a Documents Library.  I have a Power App that sends an image from the app to the Library, along with other items.  Everything works great, however....I can not see the Images in the Browse Gallery on mobile devices.  I can see it online just fine.  

I am not working with a List.  This is a Documents Library.  

 

Browse Gallery Setup in my Power App: 

CreatedDate - Text: ThisItem.Created

Picture - Text: ThisItem.'Link to item'

 

Documents Library Setup:

Name column (I did not make this.  I believe it is auto generated.). This column is where the file name which is an URL is being sent and saved via my Flow.  I think I read somewhere, that a column should 'Multiple text column' to have the image shown on a mobile device.  However, I can't figure out how to change the column type for the Name column. 

Then I have a few other regular columns. Which are good.

I confirmed your issue on my end as well. Not sure if that's a bug, but 'Link to Item' will render in Studio, but not in mobile app.

 

ThisItem.Thumbnail.Large does seem to work in mobile. It should be sufficient for a smaller form factor like a phone, as well, for showing an image in a Gallery.

@Klewis ,

To add to this - please look at this post I did a little while ago.

It is quite easy to display images on mobile devices - you just need to do it a different way (which also works on PCs).

The issue is around the way that PowerApps (mobile app) resolves URLs anonymously, which means it will not resolve SharePoint URLs (strangely) even if the user is also logged into SharePoint. 

We display thousands of photos on iPads this way.
