How to save Image/Attachments to Dynamics 365 from PowerApps

Hello power users, 
-> I need to save pen input singnature in dyanmic 365. Currenlty i m able to acheive this but the problem is it is not storing it in base64 format. It is storing in "appres://blobmanager/9d1599e730964434a494a38b7d93fe7f/11" format. Due to this, the signature is not showing in Mobile device due to incompatible format. but this signature is visible for apps in powerapp. 

-> Also I didnt get the solution of how to save the images/ Attachments in Dynamics 365 from PowerApps

 

Is Any one faced same issue?

Thanks!

Re: How to save Image/Attachments to Dynamics 365 from PowerApps

An easy and multi-purpose solution is found to add pen-input to Sharepoint/Email/PDF by utilizing the addition of a PowerApps Json functionality added on 02/05/2019.

The Short description on how to make this work is to save the pen input image in a JSON format asking the JSON function to include Binary Data:

Set( PenVar, JSON( PenInput1.Image,JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData ) );

Afraid so. I have tried everything to try and get an image saved from mobile phone (native camera) and saving image in Sharepoint. So frustrating and deadline looming.
