PowerApps not loading images?

I am having a small issue with powerapps that I would like some help solving.

I have a google sheet that has some information, and also stores and image as one of its parameters as shown below:

When i try to load this data source, and use it with a layout that has images, nothing shows up on the image:

both ARTWORK and ThisItem.ARTWORK do not work, why is this and what could be the issue?

Re: PowerApps not loading images?

I actually found a solution:

 

All I needed to do was store the items in the google sheet as their .jpg url rather than as the =IMAGE that google sheets tends to use, for some reason powerapps prefers that.

 

so for instance:

http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/yugioh/images/4/4d/AlexandriteDragon-SDBE-EN-C-1E.png

instead of:

=IMAGE("http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/yugioh/images/4/4d/AlexandriteDragon-SDBE-EN-C-1E.png")

 

Also, is powerapps down at the moment? I cant refresh my data sources, tables that were working are currently displaying nothing.

Hi HuseyinAhmet,

 

I tried the image column in GoogleSheet, and got the same results as yours.

I suspect the type of this column can't be recognized by PowerApp. While download this in Microsoft xlsx, the image cell shows the "The formula contains unrecognized text".

 

I will collect this as a feature request. If available, please also submit this as an idea under PowerApp ideas.

Thanks for your understanding.

Regards

Hi HuseyinAhmet,

Apologize for the late response.

What is your current situation?

If you still have issues loading data in PowerApp studio, then please take a check with the connections.

Also check at the data source side.

Re: PowerApps not loading images?

I have a similar issue. I have a SharePoint list with a Image Column. The image is stored in a SharePoint Image LIbrary. Power Apps is not displaying the image. Suggestions?

Images hosted in SharePoint require authentication, so are not currently supported.

@AndyPennell Hi Andy, any updates on that? 

PS. Even if I connect to a library(*) through another connection, it still doesn't work.

Images display when using the web player to run the app but not when using PowerApps.  Smiley Frustrated
