To show images in visuals, you would need their URL.
Basically, it would be like your embedding the images on visuals.
That’s why this won’t work if you’re offline.
To start, add a column in your table where the URL or links of the images will be placed.
You can either prepare beforehand by adding the column on a spreadsheet before importing it to Power BI.
Or, if your dataset is on Power BI already, you can simply add that column.
For example, here’s a table made in Power BI which has two columns viewed in data view:
The next step is to make sure the data category in that column is in ‘Image URL’.
Make sure you’re on the data view. Then, follow these steps:
- Click the column header (URL)
- Click ‘Modeling’ from the tab list
Next, click ‘Data Category’ on the ribbon.
Then, choose ‘Image URL’ from the list.
Once that is done, everything is now ready.
Head over to the report editor.
Select ‘Table’ from the visualizations.
Then, select the relevant columns of the table that has the image URL.
