Sharepoint Picture Library photos not showing on mobile


I've been trying to show pictures from a Sharepoint Picture Library, the way my app's data source is set up is I have a list with a column named Thumbnail, where I have the link of the image and have it set as Picture, so the list shows the Thumbnail. 

Now, I have a set of images stored in a separate SP List from where I take the link, this images show in the mobile app with no problem. However, the images whose link is taken from a SP Picture Library are not visible on mobile, but visible only on the web version. Could this be because I cannot connect a SP Picture Library as a data source?

Is there any way to do this? I would prefer if I didn't need to create a Flow, because the ownership of the app needs to be transferred due to the confidentiality of the information, which would make this more complicated.

Hi @Serviced2000 ,

You just need a field in your Library referencing the "parent" record. I use a numeric field called IDRef containing the ID of the Parent. Your photo Image is then


It is however much easier to simply attach the photo to the list if you only have one per record and then the photo Image is


which also works fine on mobile devices

Hi @WarrenBelz 


Once again you've come through with the goods for me - that worked 100% and is looking brilliant on the mobile version of my app. I need to rearchitecture my image management piece but I suspect that will be pretty trivial in comparision.


Thanks, as always, for your help and patience with my N00b questions! 🙂
