Re: before and after photos

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 🙂

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.

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