Upload photo from PowerApps to Google Drive or similar

I have on PowerApps a photo upload directly from the camera. Currently it goes to my Sharepoint folder via Flow.

 

However, I'm searching for an alternative. I would like the photos to be uploaded on Google Drive or another public folder/repository. How can I do that? If I can do that with Flow, how should I do it?

Hi @ghlevin ,

 

Would you like to upload images captured via Camera control in Power Apps to a Cloud storage like Google drive?

 

If so, since you have created a Flow to upload images to SharePoint library, you could create another flow with simply replacing the SharePoint create file action with Google Drive create action which are basically the same.

With SP create file action:

With Google Drive create file action:

Notice: Use dataUriToBinary64 expression as File content as in SharePoint create file action, not Ask in PowerApps in above screenshot.

 

Below is the video from Shane Young, which described quite detailed processes of upload captured images to OneDrive or SharePoint, you will only need to use Google Drive actions instead:

Hope this helps.
