Hi @clairetan62l,

Do you want to edit the Image column in PowerApps?

Actually, the Image column is a read-only type in PowerApps. It is not supported by the SharePoint connector.

As an workaround, you could store the image as BAse64 text in a text column or saving it to a library and storing a hyperlink to the image in the list.

Hi @clairetan62l 

 

There is no direct way to display images in PowerApps. One easiest option to store as an attachment on the SharePoint list.

Set Image control to 

 

First(ThisItem.Attachments).Value

 

Sample

Warren has a blog post to describe all other possible options

Hi, 

Thanks for answer, but attachment only ONE available column in SharePoint list to upload pictures, business need to create more columns to separate pictures for different purpose in one list. 

Seems now only way is that store the image link from library. ☹️

Hi @clairetan62l 

 

1. Store images in the Sharepoint library and use Lookup to display images

2. Convert image into base64 string and store as string/text

Hi @clairetan62l,

As I mentioned, I have given a simplified method, please check as below.

If you want to upload a image into a SP List from a canvas app, I think the "Multiple lines of text" type column could achieve your needs. Please check and see if the following thread would help in your scenario:

If you want to upload a image into a SP Library, please check and see if the following video resources would help in your scenario:

In addition, if you want to attach the uploaded image file from your app as attachments of SP List Item, please check and see if the answer within the following thread would help in your scenario:
