First of all, I think that you are going in a wrong direction trying to save the photos in a excel file.

I guess you should reconsider this, using a sharepoint list and it's capabilities to work with attachaments. This give you the opportunity to have all the information in the same place.

I think this short tutorial in the official documenation for PowerApps would be a great place to start 🙂

i have done this but i only have an image number in the excel file but i cant see the image in my excel file 

 

 

 

 

Hi @andyw2 

The images will be stored in a subfolder of the OneDrive folder where you saved your Excel file. The images aren't stored in the Excel file. The Excel file just contains a reference to the image file.

can i turn that reference into a hyper link ?

i will give share point a try for some reason i thought it would be easier to do it in excel 

 

thanks for the advise 

Agreed with @gabibalaban that SharePoint is the better choice here.
