Base64 to Binary

Hello all,

 

I am trying to reformat a base64 img to binary, this base64 string is being produced from a powerapp camera action. In order to display these base64 images in powerbi seems like i need them to be in binary then convert them back to base64 in powerbi for them to show, at least this is what i am seeing online. If anyone has a better method or how to do this i would appreicate the help 

 

Thanks !

HI @mmattar 

 

Yes. Please see the blog post where I have explained that step in the camera control part. Also, note that you might have to modify your formula and use the new JSON fucntion to include the binary data from that url and send it flow to create the file (image in this case). 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @mmattar 

 

Please see the blog post below where I have used the JSON function to pass the image from PowerApps to Flow:

For the image content conversion, you need to use the dataUritoBinary() funtion. 

 

Hope this Helps!
