Image loading time

If you have both options available, do you lean toward displaying image via an url or upload?

I have a table with close to a thousand exercises and uploaded an image found online for each record. Would the app load faster if I use the url option instead? Are all the pictures downloaded during the initial sync?

I’m not aware of anything in AppSheet that would prevent using either or both.

They’re functionally equivalent. All images, regardless whether they are identified by URL or by path, are retrieved by the app using a URL. For images identified by path, the app constructs a URL that points to a service at AppSheet that serves the image specified by the path.

I would expect no difference.

I believe they are loaded on-demand unless Store content for offline use is ON.
