Hi all, I have images (taken from the camera) from Power Apps and stored in a SharePoint Online list, as Base64 Text (in multiline text field).
The users would like to view/download these from SharePoint (they can view the image fine in Power Apps) and I am unsure how to achieve this.
It was suggested I would need a flow to convert this, but I am unsure how to do this.
Any help would be appreciated
You can use Create file option and may be send it via email given in below thread...
OR Save the file back to Document library and send a link to that doc library file..

any ideas why its not working for me please?

@Anonymous - Can you check Base64 string if it mentions the file type? I think it might be .png OR .JPEG... Try one of these...

What is you are suggesting I do?
Please use .png as file extension and run flow and see if you can open generated file.

This doesnt work either, i wouldnt have thought it would make a difference, but changing to .png results in the same error when i try opening the file... any other suggestions in getting this working?

Hi I have managed to use Shane Youngs video to copy over the image to a SP doc lib:
I just need to add another action, where the original SP list gets updated with the image location, something I am struggling with:
I am using update file properties action and in the expression:
I presume this is because it does not know which item to update? Unsure how to tell it to update the current item?
