Saving a generator Barcode to Jpg

Hello, 

I have an image item set to a barcode generator website that produces a barcode based on a value I enter. I can't seem to save this image as an image format in a list or document library,  I believe it is because it's a linked image instead of a static one. I've tried many different flows to get it to save as a image, or even pdf. I think it may be due to the uri?? any help would be great.

The point is Upload file from RUL action

2\Add a button control:
OnSelect(There may be a sequence problem of the two parameters, which can be adjusted according to the situation):

 

UploadaphototoSharePointfromPowerApps.Run("https://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/image.php?code=12345&style=197&type=C128B&width=115&height=50&xres=1&font=3",Text(Now()))

Hi @darren2170 :

I used a similar method, and after testing throughout the morning, I found that it was indeed impossible to save it as a picture. So I found an alternative

The point is using  Encodian

I've made a test for your reference:

1\add a textinput box(TextInput4)

2\add a flow(MyFlow)

3\Add a button(start)

OnSelect:

 

Set(VarVarVar,MyFlow.Run(TextInput4.Text).image)

 

4\Add a button(launch)//Open the sharing link and view the generated pictures in the SP library

 

Launch(VarVarVar)

Thank you for your response. I would rather not pay for the Encodian service. If I can get the following example (attachment) to save as an image in a list or azure blob storage, my program will work.. but it won't allow me to save it...
