URL image isnt displaying from a sharepoint list

Hi, I have connected data from a sharepoint list where we have got a column to select people within the organisation. 

Im Power BI I have expanded the column and selected the profile image which is displayed as a url. When this is in the table or visual though this is only displaying as an image icon. 

 

I have changed the Data category to Image URL? What am I doing wrong?

@Cbutler 

When you want to desplay Image you have to change it to Image URL from WebURL

@VijayP  Yes I have selected ImageURL, I added the WebURL too so you could see what I was connecting to.

@Cbutler Your data category should be Image URL which is what you have selected in your data. Please check if URL is working fine as there might be some special character causing URL not to work. Even if you share your PBIX file with us we may not have access to the images to test it out at our end.

Hi @negi007

I have checked the URL and its working fine, this is what I get if I convert to WebURL and click the link, so I know the link is fine. Yes no point in sharing the file as you need to be on our network to have access to view this information. 😞

@negi007  Can you remember if you had to do anything different to get them to display?

@Cbutler below might help you

  • The image needs to be in one of these file formats: .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, or .svg
  • The URL needs to be anonymously accessible, not on a site that requires a sign-in, such as SharePoint. However, if images are hosted on SharePoint or OneDrive, you may be able to get an embed code that points directly to them.
