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'
