Show a Image from every SharePoint list entry


I am starting with Power Apps. I searched for this feature but I do not find an easy path for this. I hope there may be a easy way than other posts I seen.


I am developing an app to manage people . For so, I created a column in my SharePoint List that accepts images and uploaded once into a element for test.


The view that lists the elements would need a picture of each person to be shown. Then on an image element inside the browserGallery. I tried to set this image element on 'Image' property 'ThisItem.Picture' but It does not appear like it exists. It just appears a column 'Thumbnail' where size must be setted.


I have seen a post where I may store the image as Base64 on a text column or saving on a library and store the hyperlink into a text column .


Thanks in advance

First, just as an FYI...if it is a user photo you're trying to store, are you aware that each user already has a user photo?  There would be no need to store that in SharePoint as it is already there and associated with their profile.


That said, if it is not that scenario, what column type is your picture stored in?  If it is an Image column, then you will find that the image column type is not currently supported in PowerApps.


You can use Image/Hyperlink columns in your app, but they work a little differently.  

Beyond that, you are in a quandary of trying to do something with storing base64 text of the image in a multiline text column.


I hope this is helpful for you.

The users are not on microsft accounts if that is what you mean.  In my case the users are inputed by HR department.


I actually created an Image column and stored there the picture but for what you say that column does not have any usability in my case.


I achived to show a picture by getting from the attachments with this command:

First(ThisItem.'Datos adjuntos').AbsoluteUri

I am interested in attaching files to the element appart It's picture. The only idea I could suggest is always set the same name of the picture to later make the filter by name.
