PictureThis - Use images as filters in Tableau


Create dynamic image tables with your data – Use an image table to filter your dashboards.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not use more images in your dashboard?

Have you ever tried to use product or colleague images instead of names as a filter in your Tableau Dashboards? Tableau offers URL actions, background images and shapes in order to use pictures in your dashboards. It requires a lot of work to get your images all prepped up to be used in your dashboards the standard way. In addition, they still remain static or low resolution elements that thicken up the size of your workbook.

Next-level Dashboards

The PictureThis Tableau extension helps you create dynamic image tables that can be used as a filter in your dashboard. Use Image URLs from your dataset that automatically create a responsive image table. The images will act as a filter on another target sheet in your dashboard. Images are not stored in your dashboard, they will dynamically be lined up in an image table based on your data and can be used as a filter!
