How to get sharing link from picture library with Flow?

When I upload photos from my pc to a Sharepoint Picture Library the corresponding sharing link ist not created automatically. I need to view the properties of the photo and then press the 'create link' button and copy the link. For every single image.

 

I want this task to be done by a flow. In my picture library I have created another column: PhotoLink (single line, text). This is usually empty after uploading an image. I want to build a flow that goes through all photos in the library, creates the link and inserts the resulting URL (as text) into the PhotoLink field. Is that possible? Later on I will need the links in a powerapp. And, since I sometimes upload 100 or more photos at once, I don't want to do this manually.

Sorry @v-micsh-msft. I accepted your answer as solution too early. I followed your links and there was mentioned that this action is available now. I tried and succeeded. IT. WORKS. Under 'Sharepoint' I found the action 'crate link' or 'create sharing link'. I don't know how it's actually translated because I use the GUI in German.

Thanks Robert for the remindings.

 

It seems SharePoint connection has this enabled.

There is Create Sharing Link for a file or folder available now.

I will update the previous posts with this information.
