Image in Power bi does not display when the data imported is binary

 

 

I imported a data where one field is imported as binary, which I then converted to text, and created a new column where concatenated it: "data:image/png; base64 ", & [column name] and change the 'Data category' to 'Image URL'

When I create a table with the the this column, the image is not displayed.

Upon hovering the image, it does show the concatenated string (see the snapshot below)

Can you please help me with this issue.

Hi @Anonymous 

 

I tried the method in this blog and was able to show the images. Try "data:image/jpeg;base64,"&[ImageData] or “data:image/;base64,”&[ImageData]
