Display images in pivot / straight table

Hello
I'm working on a straight table
I have a dimension that has the URL of image (network path)
I want to display that image in the straight table or if there is another approach like when I select a row I display the image in some kind of another chart

Yes, I believe Qlik does not allow to open local files or in an internal network. So there are few options:

You can create content library and upload all needed images here and link to those images (same I did in example with warehouse.png image). How to create content library in QMC you can find here:
https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Sense-doesn-t-display-images/td-p/951310

or you need a FTP server or internet server (cloud) and upload images to it, and have hyperlink to those images (same I did in example with potato-800x800.jpg)

Hi, have you tried to add these 'Pictures' not as measure, but as dimension and under menu-> Representation set as Image?

(Under menu Appearance -> Presentation -> Styling you can set your row height (in lines) if needed better view.)

Hi, link to the image is exactly what you need. Just try simple example: create new table, with one dimension

='\\QlikSense\Product\Images\product1.jpeg'

and make 'Representation' as 'Image'. Do you see your image? If not, does this product1.jpeg is in the same 'server' as your Qlik sense?

Similarly as below, where first image is linked to image from my content library, and second just from internet:

I see that your image (potato) is not on your premise server,
does this mean that I need to upload images to cloud? or I can have them on a network-shared folder on the same server where Qlik is installed?

actually we have a big number of images and it turned out that the content library has limitation on the number of photos that can be added
so we uploaded the photos to an internet server and it worked
thank you for your answer and sorry for the late response from my side
