Blob images not showing in gallery

I have a Form7 where I used "Add picture" control to save pictures in Dataverse table column configured as Multiline text. I have added one gallery on same screen to see the pictures added after submitting the Form7. 

Everything works fine, only the Images are not visible in gallery image control. The URL is perfectly get copied in Gallery image control but picture is not visible.

Look at the two pictures attached. 

1. Form

2. Gallery

Any help please.

 Hi @ashokpershad


We can't directly display the image in PowerApps. We need to convert it into a Base64 string. 


Option 1: Convert the image into a base64 string Whenever the image is added into blob using Power Automate. So we can display the image directly.


2. If the blob has a regular image then we need to convert it into a base64 string on demand.


  • Store the Image(Normal) in Blob
  • PowerApps Gets the items
  • Send to Power Automate
  • Power Automate Converts into a Base64 string
  • PowerApps Displays the image


I like option #1 since we don't need to do it again and again.

@StalinPonnusamy thank you very much for your reply. So there is no other way except doing it through Power Automate ? Converting to Binary will not Help as I did in my example using JSON function.
