Hi @subhadip,

 

As of now, Image hyperlink is not yet supported. As shown in the link, the only workaround is to add a corresponding Web URL beside each image. To help improve our product, please vote this idea.

helle @subhadip and others,

 

I have found a workarounf for this. 

 

  1. Place an textbox on top of an image
  2. Fill the text box with spaces
  3. Make the text large enough to cover the image
  4. Make the spaces into an hyperlink
  5. Make the underline of the hyperlink the same color as the background

Hope this helps.

Can you please tell me how to remove the underline from the hyperlink from the blank text or how to change its color in Power BI Desktop and /or powerbi.com? Thanks. 

You can change the color of the underline by selecting the blank text and then pressing the down arrow in the floating edit menu.

I checked some of the link , which tell about  tool limitation . It will add Hyperlink Icon (Image Url) but that will be dummy one the user has to click the chain symbol (Web Url) for the hyper link to open.
