Re: Microsoft flow for converting image to PDF is not working

Even I have exactly similar issue. My document is converted to PDF perfectly, but the image is corrupted. It was working fine earlier, but we get the corrupted pdf file for image.

Could you please let me know if you were able to resolve this?

I have the same issue.  It was work fine for a while and then it stop converting image.  Therefore, I created ticket with MS Flow, product team. They have been researching for a couple of weeks and they email me that it is the know issue and they are working on it.  I will let you know if I hear anything else from the MS Flow product team.  

 

If any of you find the solution, please let me know as well.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply. This works for me now, the image is loading perfectly on the PDF. Probably MS has managed to resolve this.

Hello,

 

It would be because of the MS update to the Flow. Even I faced this issue for days, and suddenly the image was rendering perfectly.

So if you have in your HTML text field for example <img src='http://adress'> in your output PDF you have image showed correctly? Because I have formatted text and hyperlinks OK but images are still not rendering.

 

Can you please describe your solution?

Re: Microsoft flow for converting image to PDF is not working

Hello @MartinVasek , did you convert your image to dataURI first ?

MS Flow can not recover an image via an http link. You must first convert your image via convert (dataURI) then retrieve the result to embed in the document which will be converted to PDF. Here is a demonstration of Shane Young:

But to upload an image from your PC, then save the conversion result of the image in SharePoint or OneDrive before using it in the document that will be converted to PDF, that's another story.


Here is a demonstration of Paul Culmsee:

One of the major problems in converting documents to PDF is that the size of the file to be converted (for example an HTML file), must not exceed 2 MB. Otherwise the conversion will fail and you will not have the PDF.

Here is a request that has been made to Microsoft to change the limit from 2 MB to at least 50 MB. Thank you for voting for this idea.

Re: Microsoft flow for converting image to PDF is not working

Thank you for answer @zdridos,

 

but in our case I believe it's impossible to use these solutions. Because we have HTMLtext control of PowerApps and inside of it there could be 1, 5, 10... pictures. So we don't have option to call particular picture from SharePoint since it could be anwhere and we can't predict how many images there will be in that HTMLtext.

 

I'm affraid that it's endline for us until there will be simple solution: Create PDF -> PDF with auto inserted pictures.
