PowerApps Image Control Is not displaying tiff or tif Images from sharepoint image library/datasource.

I have an image library on sharepoint with jpg and tiff images. In the PowerApp I am building using 'Link To Item' from the data source object in the Image's image attribute. jpg files are rendered fine but tiff files appear blank. The images all appear fine in the image library just not in the power app and just not tiff type files.

There is the introduce in the doc, but the doc. bot clearify not support tiff, it only shows it can support web-image formats, then I research the web-image formats, not include tiff.

I did a little testing and it looks like the PowerApps image control won't display TIFF files no matter where they are located.  I tried uploading one directly in the control and all I get is a white block. I suspect the image control isn't designed to display anything other than JPG and PNG. But I couldn't find anything official that lists a file format limitation.

You can view TIF files stored in a Document Library by using the {Thumbnail} property for any give file or photo including TIF files:

 

ThisItem.'{Thumbnail}'.Small
ThisItem.'{Thumbnail}'.Medium
ThisItem.'{Thumbnail}'.Large

 

It is supported, albeit this blog from Chaks (a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft) describes how you can do this with the Graph APIs, this has since been implemented nataively in the SharePoint Connector per my blog post early this year:

https://masteroffice365.com/sharepoint-powered-thumbnails/

 

I have tested it with TIF files and definitely works, although it does seem to take a little bit longer to render than other file or photo types of documents.
