Odoo Show Images In Excel

Updated 15 April 2020


Being a non-technical Odoo user, exporting images in the Base64 format will not be feasible for an Odoo user as it is difficult to find the difference in identical products and this process is time-consuming too. Odoo Show Images in Excel simplifies this process as it exports the original Odoo image from the Odoo backend to the excel file or CSV that can be viewed in file format for better visual presentation.

By default, exporting product data from Odoo to excel file is automatically encoded in Base64 format. With the help of this module, Odoo user can directly view the real image and can complete their task without wasting time. It is the most appropriate way to save time.

Odoo Show files in Excel enables users to share the product data in the original format within your organization or outside it. Once the export process is completed, the user can see the preview of the product image rather than the Base64 code.


  • Odoo Show Images in Excel exports the original image from Odoo to excel file instead of the Base64 code.
  • This module enables users to directly view the real image and prevents it from converting into the Base64 code.
  • After installation, users can easily export the original image to the excel file and complete their tasks on time.
  • Once exported, the user can view the image preview of the product image present in the image column and can share it with their organization or outside it.
