Camera and Uploading Images using Flow

Hi All,


I'm quite new to PowerApps and am using the Site Inspector template to learn and play. 


One of the things I would like to learn with it is to upload the images and descriptions to SharePoint and a network location with Flow/Power Automate.

I've created the Flow, however, I don't quite understand the logic for parsing the parameters to it, and whether it is possible to include this flow process as part of the 'Save' button which currently runs SubmitForm(FormNewInspection)


Would someone be able to provide some explanations around the CameraPhotos and whether this is possible?




Hi @WarrenBelz ,


No problem - thanks again for the assistance! 


I don't seem to have the option for Createfile_FileContent? (image attached)


I tried to manually put the code in the expression field, and while it saves correctly, back in PowerApps it still only asks for one parameter?

OK - I was ambiguous here a bit when I said you could type it in. You have to "Ask in PowerApps" in file content, then delete the entry and then do the dataUriToBinary bit.

It will come up after you have done it.

@WarrenBelz Thanks for the solution. Is there a way to run this flow that passes a collection of multiple photos all at once? Thanks!


I made one for photo upload instead of camera control but it only seems to save them as .png photos when I actually upload them from my computer instead taking a photo from a tablet.

@powerappsuser17 ,

Yes, but a very different and more complex process - you might post this on a new thread and explain in a bit of detail what you want to do.
