Problem with Add Image Control and appres//blobmanager

I need to get the actual data or URI of a picture, that was added using the "Add Image"-Control.
Instead of the picture data (or URI) I get: 

appres://blobmanager/18f52060d737479cad911665f4e49362/2


Which is completely useless to me.


Is there no way to access the picture data?

And if there isn't why would you even introduce this local reference?
Why would anyone want to load a picture into PowerApps but then not be ablet to process it further?
Either I am missing something or I am doing it wrong.

I am aware of the few (always the same 3) entries that get always posted as an Answer, they don't work for me.

I don't have trouble uploading a picture to Sharepoint, I have trouble getting an actual picture!

(This also seems to be a relatively new problem? In all the older posts people don't seem to have trouble with the actual selection of the picture.)

I am grateful for any help.

Here is the first half that shows how to save the signature. I will do second half on how to place in document shortly.

Thanks for the reply, I finally found this same solution (unfortunately after a couple hours of head against the wall beating).  I ended up creating a simple flow to add an a CDS entity annotation passing the image data. Works like a charm and not so kludgy. 🙂

 

Thanks! Video is very helpful.

 

 

Hi EmmitK,
Sorry I'm a newbie. May I ask how do you set image to url? Maybe this is the answer to my problem.
