Saving Pen Images

So far I can only get Pen Images to save to an excel data source, is there any way to get the image data from the control as we would like to save to sharepoint?

 

With the camera control Camera.Photo gives you the jpg base64 encoded data which can easily be converted an image elsewhere, e.g. sharepoint. If i try a similar approach with the PenInput.Image it gives a string such as "blob:8C8341C0-218F-4519-9FE7-C796D41013DF" and no way to get an image from it

 

Saving to an excel data source does save the images in a seperate folder using Patch(source,Defaults(source),{image: PenInput1.Image})
