Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
That is the idea, and I hope the way to implement that idea is easier an simple as insert a camera control. Unfortunatelly no all of the users are experts.
But I think you get the whole point and the solution here.
We have been waiting for MS to fix this issue.
Well I got mine working.
Rather than use the image control to add pictures to a gallery, then trying to upload that gallery to sharepoint. I have created a form with sharepoint as the datasource, and only a visible attachment box. I then have a gallery at the top of the page that displays the attachments as images. This allows the user to see a preview of what images are being sent to sharepoint before hitting submit form.
Don't know if this is news or not, but this solution worked for me. I can take photos using the camera in mobile devices, save them to sharepoint and display them back in the powerapp on the device: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QeOILfo1Bw&feature=youtu.be
I had that working myself. The difficulty is that PowerApps seems to hande photos taken inside the app using the camera control, in a different way to images taken outside the app, then loaded into the app using the add image control. (And the pen input tool)
I managed to find a workaround using attachments, but now I need to make the same thing work for the pen control. I really dont want to have to ask a user to take a screenshot of their signature then add it as an attachment.
Browse different SharePoint sites, display the document libraries on that site, view just about any type of content from those document libraries directly "within" your PowerApps and printed on any device (i.e. web browser, Apple, Android) including PDFs, Word and PowerPoint documents, highly compressed photos, and quite possible many other formats without using SharePoint Lists or Excel workbooks, OneDrive or any other complex hack for that matter. Any file displayed in the app can be downloaded to your local device seemlessly. Notwithstanding how cool and user friendly this app looks.
Teaser of the demo app - now I just need to write the blog to describle how it was developed (and it's not complex code...). I haven't tested yet with handling folders within the app however I am relatively confident I can do include this functionality as well.
The more Kudus I get, the sooner I'll post the blog :-).
I have uploaded a now final video demo of the app I have created that is now narrated and displays even more functionality I have implemented subsequent to my earlier reply on this topic.
This latest video really depicts some awesome functionality that speaks to so many App Makers out there that keep asking when is this type of functionality I have now demonstrated is in fact possible today, especially as it pertains to this thread.
In the demo video you can see how easily I am able to browse through photos stored in a Site Assets library containing 10k+ photos in the I created:
I will be posting a blog within the next week (hopefully) on exactly I made all the cool stuff I've demonstrated in the demo video possible within a single PowerApp.
