Image in rich text field via Airtable formula

How do I get a small image in line with text in a rich text field?

I’m pulling data dynamically from Airtable (text and images).

Here’s the formula I’m using in Airtable:


Glide rich text fields work great for text formatting and everything else, but not images. See attached.

What am I doing wrong?

Something like this works for me.

<div id="container" style="white-space:nowrap">
<div id="image" style="display:inline-block;">
        <img src="" width="50" height="50"/>

<div id="text" style="display:inline-block; vertical-align: 6px; white-space:nowrap;padding-left: 12px"> 
<span style="font-size: 2.125rem;font-weight:800">Next Delivery</span>



Thanks; I’m not very technical, though.

How would I write that in Airtable using the “code” I wrote, above?

Does it need to happen in Airtable though?

If you can bring the image URL and the text to Glide, you can just construct it using a template column.

Thank you!! I didn’t know what a Template Column is used for.

My current challenge is how do I get the images/attachments from Airtable into Glide dynamically (Airtable links expire in roughly 2 hrs).

Zapier can’t do it. And populating Google sheets with images from Airtable seems like a crappy solution.


Does the image field in Airtable update itself after 2 hours? If it’s the case then I think Glide will just update the URL when the Airtable side updates.

It doesn’t look like I can access images externally that are stored in Airtable (a recent update from them).

I need a way to store images somewhere else and pull them into Glide dynamically.

Sorry I don’t use Airtable. What do you mean that you can’t access image externally that are stored in Airtable? If it’s stored as a URL in Airtable, doesn’t that update to Glide?

According to this, apparently not anymore…unless I’m missing something (which is quite possible, given my non-tech background).

Here was Glide’s word back when they first introduced expiring links.

Is there a way you can rework your structure to upload files through Glide?
