Saving (downloading) image from PowerApp to the computer

This seems like it should be pretty simple but I can't find if there's a way to do it.  I have images that appear in my PowerApp (pulled from a Sharepoint list, referenced as a hyperlink formatted as picture column).  I simply want to be able to click on that image and download to the computer.  I have an app that brings up headshots of users and we just need to be able to save an image we click on to our local machine.


What's the best way to do this?

Re: Saving (downloading) image from PowerApp to the computer

Hi @jsantan73 


You will need to use the Launch Command to do this, it will open the image, then the user will need to push on the image and tap download to device.


For example:

Add one button control,Button.OnSelect=Launch(Gallery1.Selected.'Link to item') 



Hope this could be helpful.


Best Regards.

Thank you for your reply but this is not working for me.  It only launches a blank web page.  See attached images which may describe my situation more clearly....
