Chris I can't thank you enough. This is my first time watching one of your video series and I must admit these tutorials are a great for Firebase & Swift integration.Thanks for showing the importance of documentation and taking comments on our code and actually taking time to explain what we are "actually" doing using best practices – it's a valuable trait that many online course/teacher/tutorial lacks.Looking forward for more Firebase & Swift tutorials!

Hope you found a solution, but if you want to use firebase, perhaps look into firebase storage. It's described here: firebase.google.com/docs/storage/ If you are new to programming, it's often smart to break a problem like this into smaller problems and try to solve them.

Chris, Great stuff. Keep up the good work. I have been parallelling your work with my own app, and I am wondering (hoping) whether your next video(s) might deal with passing Firebase snapshot data into custom TableView cells, as opposed to a simple list. Another way of posing this request would be to ask whether I should try to "place" my FB snapshot data into the custom cells during the .observe event (i.e. when the app is reading the data line by line), or whether i need to hold it in a temporary array then port the array back out… Read more »
