Hi All, I know it's a bit of old topic. But not sure what is happening to me here.

So the Image grid it is working fine when I open the report in Chrome, BUT the images still do not appear in the 'project' in the desktop power BI app, and neither in the report that I added in my Teams. This is how I see it, do you know why?

Hello, I am having the same issue with the URL working fine but the image would not upload on Power BI Desktop. Anyone have any solutions?

@SwayamSelf Is your image publically accessible using URL?

 

As @Greg_Deckler suggested, can you share the URL here and see if it can be accessed by everyone.

Images are not shown in the Matrix grid detail.  You endup with "First Image UrL".  "First/Last" will only see it as string value. There is an enhancement request out here somewhere for this.. for First and Last to use the datatype and display the image --- but doesn't seem to be high on anybody's priorities list.  I think it would be an easy win -- then you could at least show some home grown KPI's in the matrix.

The URL itself is working and as you can see the data category is also assigned to Image URL.

It is not working for any of the tables with Image urls.

Also I am using PBIdesktop 64 bit version.

I can't recreate this with this data:

Can you post the URL that you are using? The one above works in a slicer, table, etc. I am on 64-bit February.

@Greg_Deckler,

I also tried with your url . its still not working. I am on 64-bit february too.Picture4.jpg

@SwayamSelf- I hate to ask this, but are you connected to the Internet? That's the only reason I can imagine that you wouldn't see the image displayed. Obviously you are since you are posting on here but that's really strange. What regional language pack are you on? Can't imagine that would make a difference but maybe. I can't find anything in Options that would disable images from working but you might play around with Security and/or Privacy settings.

the code here 

 

// test URL image 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("HcsxDoAgDADAv3QWikQXv0IYCDao0ZZg1fh7E2+/EKA0IoYOFtU6ITZiuZOuXPjNNsuBTzVZWIkVr7pLmk/0rh/RefyvcYPdaoEYPw==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Color = _t, URL = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Color", type text}, {"URL", type text}})
in
    #"Changed Type"

Thank you,

Hi @narendra1,

 

I don't see why it is not working on your side.  I have just tested it now and is all ok for me. 

 

I would suggest you try to load a simple table like the below and set up the URL col as Image URL

 

 

url images.png

 

Name		URL
green		http://renovatingnyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/green-04.jpg
Wikipedia	https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/80/Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg/150px-Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg.png

you must get something like  

 

Url table.png

So one thing is sure that this image is accessible. Now next step why you cannot see it in PowerBI. Stay tuned, will look into it

hi, @SwayamSelf @Greg_Deckler

 

You must change the field property ...
Menu> Modeling> Property>
Change to IMAGE URL

 

 

Please try and test using it. And please mark the right reply as answer if your issue has been resolved, otherwise, please feel free to ask if you have any other issue.

Best Regards,
