Save image in SharePoint List

Hi Power Apps community,

 

I am trying to create an App that permits users to upload images in a SharePoint List. I can only find videos and articles about how to upload images in a SharePoint Library or capture pictures with the app and save it in SharePoint List. However, I cannot find a solution to upload an image from my pc using Power Apps and save that image in a SharePoint List. 

 

Is it possible to achieve this function with Power Apps?

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi @JB0007 ,

You need an Add Picture Control. You then store it with a Flow - here is a Video on the process.

Hi @JB0007 :

Thanks for @WarrenBelz 's solution.

Using flow is an effective and commonly used method,but I usually recommend the method of converting the image into a binary format for storage.

I've made a test for your reference:

My data source(List B):

Column (click to edit) Type

TitleSingle line of text
PICMultiple lines of text

1\Add an add picture control(AddMediaWithImage1)

2\Add a button:

OnSelect:

 

Patch(
       'List B',
       Defaults('List B'), /*add a new record*/
       {Title:Text(Now()),
         PIC: Substitute(JSON(UploadedImage1.Image,JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData),"""","")
       }
)

 

3\add a gallery(Used to display saved pictures)

Items:

 

'List B'

Hi @WarrenBelz  thank you for your help.

 

The flow works great.

Hi @v-bofeng-msft thank you for your help. 

 

This is also a great solution and works great.

 

Regards.

@v-bofeng-msft  Thanks for this direct PA solution, works fine. No Flow needed. 😀 Gr. Lex

This looks like just the solution I was looking for! Everything works just like you laid out but the image does not show up in the Gallery view. I don't even have the option to assign my binary data to the image control in the gallery. Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks!!

a question can these images be sent by mail from powerapps?

@v-bofeng-msft Thank you for your response as this is the only solution that has seemed to work for me. How do I go about mass converting these into a folder of images while keeping some sort of tags to sort and filter them? Thanks!
