Storing and retrieving images without using flows

Hi,

 

Is there a way i can store and retrieve image files without using a flow in power apps. I use SharePoint Online as the data source for my application.

 

Doing the same using flow is currently not viable for my application.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks & Regards

Srinath

Re: Storing and retrieving images without using flows

@Srinath ,

The easiest way would be to file them as attachments and here is a video which includes some display elements on the attachment option. You can also convert them to text with the JSON function and store them in a multi-line text field. To automate to a Library, you would need a flow.

 

Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

 

Thanks for the reply. 

 

Can I do the same for 'pen input' control also?

Hi @Srinath ,

Yes - they are an image and can be saved in much the same manner.

Hi @Srinath ,

Do you want to store the image in your SP List without using flow (Power Automate)?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the "Multiple Lines of Text" Type column could achieve your needs. Please check and see if the following threads would help in your scenario:
