Problem with Images in PowerBI

Hi everybody,

 

I have tried to import icons to my dashboard, since I have weather conditions in my reports. I have been following instructions from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWLXANXnIlQ

After everyting was done, my dashboard displays the images like this:123.JPG

I have already checked, links are good, data type is set to the Image URL and there is a connection with other data, so I cant really tell what is the problem here...

Also, size of the icons is 128x128, so maybe they are too big for this purpose?

 

Any suggestion is kindly appreciated 🙂

Right, it seems you're using the link address to the image. You'll need to use the image address instead.

So in this case a url for example would look like https://i.imgur.com/zZSCoTA.png.

Hi @Tahreem24,

Thank you for your reply. I have also downloaded the working file from the video and everything is working for me too.

I cant export everything due to data sensitivity, but here are the most important parts:
