I want to display images which are in my organization SharePoint news feed page in a xamarin app. Image URL needs an authorization. How to give this authorization.

Image URL : "https://organizationName.sharepoint.com/Lists/Group%20News/Attachments/6500/Cove%29Page.png"

As a workaround, we can get the image data using SharePoint REST API.

http://<site url>/_api/web/getfilebyserverrelativeurl('/<folder name>/<file name>')/$value

Convert data to Base64-encoded string.

"data:image/png;base64, " + Convert.ToBase64String(bytes);

Then set Base64-encoded string to the src attribute of the image.
