View Link as image - image link to local server?

I have a number of photos stored on a local server, let’s say:


The image ‘URL’ (path) is stored in a SQL field.

I have tried to select ‘view as image’ but it just displays the path text, not the image itself.

Is it possible to display an image from a local machine or does it have to be an internet URL?


Hi @jmarusiak
Metabase prohibits using file:// because of the security implications with that protocol, and since only Internet Explorer supports it.
You would have to host the image over http/https
