Camera with Computer Vision

Hi, I am not a programmer but have viewed (a lot)!! of YouTube clips and have a basic computer vision service working where you upload a saved image file and it gives tags in a gallery view using the function below. I now want to be able to take the image from my camera and then analyse it with Computer Vision anyone able to tell me how I change the function below to gather the image from the camera which is saving in collections called "colPhoto" and then get analysed?


ClearCollect(colImageDesc, ComputerVisionAPI.DescribeImageContentV2(UploadedImage1.Image).description)

Hi @MJDuane ,


Do you want to save the camera photo to collection, and get the description of image?

Set ClearCollect( colPhoto, Camera1.Photo)   to OnSelect property of Camera.

Then modify your formula as below:

ClearCollect(colImageDesc, ComputerVisionAPI.DescribeImageContentV2(First(colPhoto).Url).description)
