Using Image in power app from sharepoint list

The data source for my powerpoint app is a Sharepoint List.  One of the columns is a picture column..  When I try to add an edit form the picture field does not show as an option.  I want to be able to edit/add/view records to this column.  Any idea on the problem?

Hi @astrontelstar ,


Would you like to edit/add/view image of the SP list Image type column in Power Apps?


If so, I'm afraid it is not completely supported in Power Apps, since in Power Apps Form, it only support to VIEW image of SP image type column value and edit/add image to SP Hyperlink column via URL.



See my screenshot:



As a workaround, you could add a custom card with an Image Control in the Form, link the image control to the Hyperlink column so that it would display the picture in Edit Mode. In New Mode, link image control to the data card value of the URL:


Image property of the Image Control in the custom card:



If(Parent.DisplayMode = DisplayMode.New, HyperlinkDataCardValue.Text, ThisItem.HyperlinkColumn )



If you would like to add image from local devices, you could use the Attachments column to store the image, and set the Image property of the custom card as follows to display the (first) image added into Attachments:





If you want to upload image using Addpicture control to update hyperlink column, you need to follow these steps:


create a flow(create a picture file and update it to sharepoint library by using the image uploaded in Addpicture control

->get this picture's link from the sharepoint library

->return this link to powerapps)

->update your hyperlink column by using the link that you returned from the flow


Here's a issue about the steps in details for your reference:

Hope this helps.
