I currently have the following patch formula which successfully submits textbox entries to my sharepoint list.
However, I can't get this to work with a couple of image uploads. Any ideas?
My two images are called 'addmediaTestrig' and 'addmediaGauge', the sharepoint columns are TestRig and Gauge.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi @Gochix ,
Thanks, I'll take a look. I do use search before posting questions but being new to all this don't always find what I need.
Thanks again for your reply.
Actually, this is an old topic in Power Apps.😂
There are different ways to achieve this, however it depends on what is you want.
There are several column types supporting saving images, multi-line-of-text type saves image like binary format, Attachment type save image like an attachment using the Attachment control within a form.
Note that both of them could not display the image itself in your SharePoint list, that's the limit.
1). To save the image within multi-line-of-text type column, you just need to add an add picture control(AddMediaWithImage1), once you click the AddMediaWithImage1 and upload an image, you could write your Patch function as below:
You just need to add the MultiLineOfTextColumn part behind the Pass field.
2). To save the image within Attachment type column, you just need to add an edit form and edit fileds(Leave only the attachments field), then write your Patch() function as below:
More details, you could check the this thread.
It seems so close but so far....
I have used the option 1 which when previewing the app looks to be uploading. However, nothing shows in the MultiLineOfTextColumn. The function is highlighted below:
Am I missing something? Is there something I should be changing in the Sharepoint list?
So grateful for your help up to now.
Could you please tell me what is the imgTestrig and imgTestgauge, are they both add picture control?
The solution I provided could only work for the AddPicture control, it makes no sense if you use the Image control.
You should reference to the UploadedImage1 control within.
I've renamed the UploadImages1 and 2 so I can identify them easier on the form. Everything looks as you have shown.
I'll keep trying so thanks for you help so far.
Everything looks to be working, I'm not getting any error messages but I can't get the binary code (if that's the correct terminology) to show in the Sharepoint column. Am I missing something from the Sharepoint column settings?
It's frustrating because it's so close to working. Thanks for your help so far.
Could you please make sure that both of the TestRig and TestGauge are Multi-line-of-text column type?
If it is convenient, please make a gif to describe the column settings and what you have done in Power Apps.
Take it easy, we could figure it out.😃
