Add image to SharePoint list

Hello All,

 

I am trying to add an image to a SharePoint list column (picture type) and do not see the option in the "Create item" action.

 

Does anyone know of a workaround? Perhaps an https request?

 

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Hi Norm @NormYoung we upload the images from smartphones to an asset library on SharePoint. The flow is very simple but works well, hope it's helpful:

Hi @ChristianAbata,

 

Thanks for the response. The image is coming from a mobile device and the Flow is being triggered by a "Button", so there is no URL unless I upload the image to the site.

 

Is that what you were thinking?

Thanks, @RobElliott I appreciate the detailed response. I got it working in a similar fashion to your example.

 

There must be an HTTP method that will allow posting to the image column directly. I'm going to keep scratching around.

 

Thanks again to you and @ChristianAbata.
