Image URL in a report - Do not appear

Hi,

 

I am trying to include images in a table.I have the following Excel Sheet that I linked to my data table:

 

excel.PNG

 

I changed the data type to Image URL. But here is what I get :

 

imagerror.PNG

The images appear as "stickers" and we cannot see the real image...

 

Does someone have a clue?

As I suspected. You need to follow the links all the way until you get to the actual image file itself. Otherwise the URL is just a webpage that contains an image somewhere in its code. So for the up arrow for instance you would use...

I'm suspicious that these are not direct image file urls, but rather google images viewer urls. Can you post the full urls of a few of them?

@KHorseman

 

Indeed, you are right. I did a stupid URL copy-pasting ....

 

Thanks a lot! 🙂

Wiki images are a pain too because even if you get out of Google Images and back to the source, their viewer page urls look like image file urls even though they really aren't.

Hi,

 

I have the following excel sheet with the URL of the image I want to include in my report: excel.PNG

I linked it to my data table and changed the type to Image URL. But I get the following:imagerror2.png

 

The images appear as "Stickers" and we cannot see them. Does anyone have a clue?

 

Thanks!

Hi @sophie63

 

Can you please post the data in text format to help us test.  It's cut off in the image that you posted so hard to reproduce.
