When a given field/cell contains a URL to an image file, it should display as the image or thumbnail of image, not as a text hyperlink.
This is particularly important if using URL formulas to ping barcode-generation APIs. We get the barcodes we need, but we can’t bring them back into Airtable.
Of course, this is all a workaround for the fact that the Barcode field format is input-only. It can do barcode-to-string, but not string to barcode; at least what I can tell.
I hope there is momentum behind this use-case; I imagine everyone managing any sorta inventory needs barcode images in-line, and ideally scannable once printed.
