Insert x number of images from SharePoint into a word document

I am trying to create a flow that takes image's stored in a SharePoint document library folder and inserts them into a Word document. The word document has text on the first page, and on the second page the images would start. There should be two images per page centered. The number of images will differ per folder and I want to apply these actions to all folders within the document library.


Through my research I have seen where this is possible by creating a template in Word and having placeholder images. Problem is the amount of images that need to be inserted into the word document will differ with each folder, and I don't want to have to edit the template every time. If I put 15 placeholders and it only ends up filling 3 of the spots with images, then I have 12 additional placeholders taking up multiple empty pages which looks unprofessional to the end reader.


is there any way to avoid this?


Hi @RobJinx 


I'm afraid the only way to change a Word template is directly from within the Word app, so its not possible to add content to a Word template without knowing how much content you need, in this case images. 

I was thinking that a not too efficient solution for this is to make different templates with different spaces for the images, then use a "Switch" to select the template you need based on the number of images, that's my idea I don't know if it could work for your flow. 


If anyone has a better solution, please feel free to join. 

I hope this helps.
