Using OneDrive for Business Excel File to Add Picture to Gallery

So, I have a column that has links to pictures saved in an Excel Document stored on OneDrive for Business.  I can't get the actual image to show up in the gallery I have inserted into my PowerApp.

 

It is seeing the column as 'Text' data and I don't know how to format it as a picture.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thank you!!!

Re: Using OneDrive for Business Excel File to Add Picture to Gallery

Hi @UntuckedKyrie ,

 

Is the data source of the Gallery control a SharePoint list? If so, may I know how did you link the pictures to SharePoint list?

You mentioned that the pictures are stored inside an excel file in OneDrive for Business. Did you mean that in your excel file, the pictures are stored as links, and the pictures are acutally uploaded to OneDrive for Busines folder? 

 

What is this column's column type in SharePoint list? Is it a Hyperlink or Picture column?

 

Or if you only want to manage the images from Excel table in PowerApps, then please refer to the documentation below:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/tutorial-working-with-images-in-excel

Notice that to make it work with PowerApps, the column name to store the images must be "xxxx[image]" in excel table.
