Public Preview: New Image Enhancements Available Via API

Headshot of article author Nathan Helgren

Several requested enhancements to the Image data type are now available as a preview for Power Apps. Out of the box, Common Data Service can now naively support:

  • Large, high resolution images
  • Multiple image fields per entity
  • Use of blob storage for images to reduce consumption of relational storage

There are also enhanced metadata options for the Image data type to provide more information when creating and consuming it.

These features can be implemented through the Maker Portal for Canvas apps  (blog post on Power Apps)  now,  and with Model Driven apps in the near future.

Users can also get started using these great new data types through the Image Attribute APIs .


Let us know what you think!

We hope you enjoy the newly added features and are excited to hear what you think about them. If you have questions or other feedback, please comment here or let us know on the PowerApps administer PowerApps forum. We look forward to hearing from you!
