      I have created a dashboard with a single-value quickfilter
      (color1,color2, color3). When I select one of the choices (e.g. color1), the
      location is defined in the map backround (longitudinal, latitude) so far so
      good.  What I want to do now is selects a
      choice (e.g. color2) , an image2 is displayed. so I did this:

      I placed few images (image1, image2, image3) in the "shapes"
      folder then I added one to the dashboard (via the image icon).

      Is there a way to rotate these images, like select color3
      then the image3 is displayed and so on?

      many thanks

          hi Seb,


          You can use the color1,color2, color3 dimension in shapes and select each image. when you filter then each image will display.

            Many thanks Sankar,

            I have to admit, I am rather new to Tablea so learning as I go.  In any case, I do not fully understand your advice, al I did was to click in the image icon (in dashboard) and import the image so how can I link that to the quickfilter (clor1-3)?

            do you have a simple example of a quickfilter selecting images?

              To add an image in a worksheet, you need to use Marks Shape.

              This is the process:

              1.- Copy you image file to a folder in C:\Users\<username>\My Documents\My Tableau Repository/Shapes\My Image Note that you need to create the folder My Image

              2.- Create a calculated field with the formula: "image"

              3.- Drag that calculate field to Rows shelf

              4.- In Marks card, select Shape

              5.- click on Shape button in Marks card and click on More Shapes....

              6.- In dialogue Edit Shape, click on Reload Shapes, then select the Shape Palette My Image and select your image as a shape

              7. Click on OK



              Please have a look at the attached workbook
