Unable to Insert Images from External Database (Airtable) into List

Hi! I’ve set up an External Database connected to Airtable. I’m trying to pull in the images from Airtable into my list, but the option is greyed out. Any explanation for why this is happening?

I’m able to pull in text fields from the external database:

But when I try to select the image, I’m not able to select the database:

Even though, the image fields are being pulled into Adalo:

Thanks in advance for your help!

One more detail: I made sure Airtable has an image file for every record, but that didn’t change anything.

You need to set the Image Source to by URL instead of Database. Then you can use the magic text to get the image URL property from your external collection. Here’s a help article on that: https://help.adalo.com/integrations/external-collections-with-apis/airtable/displaying-images
