Sending Images from PowerApps to Microsoft Flow

Is it currently possible to send a captured image from PowerApps to Microsoft flow?

 

The basic idea of the app is to take a picture with the camera control then pass the image to a Microsoft flow which will then send an email with the image as an attachment.

I was able to send images from PowerApps > Flow > SharePoint Library using this example (http://www.techmikael.com/2017/05/an-even-more-clever-workaround-for.html) it is using Azure functions and not so "NO-CODE"...but I'm assuming that you should be able to get creating and send the images elsewhere from flow. Maybe Powerapps will get to a point were stuff like this is truly no code.

Hi Dan,

 

This cannot be done so far as you cannot pass the image to Flow. Please consider to submit a idea in PowerApps Idea forum, so it might be considered for future releases.

Hi both.  From this article it would seem it is possible to send attachments directly from PowerApps.

@v-monli-msft I have written the following post on this, could you please clarify what is possible?
