send a camera photos collection with email

a while ago I built an application that send a collection using powerapps by email. The below was working:

 

 

Collect(Photos,{Name:"Photo"&X&".jpg",ContentBytes:Camera3.Photo,'@odata.type':""});Set(X,X+1)

 

Office365.SendEmail(Emailaddress.Text,"Device Report",HtmlText1.HtmlText,{Attachments:Photos,IsHtml:true});Navigate(SuccessMsg,ScreenTransition.Fade);Navigate(SuccessMsg,Fade)

 

now im getting the below error:

icompatible type. The 'ContentBytes' column in the data source you're updating expects a 'Blob' type and you're using a 'Image' type.

 

can you help me ?

Hi @roncam ,

Shane Young @Shanescows has made a very good video on this subject.

Maybe a revisit of his methodology can be of assistance.

thanks for your reply. unfortunately the error im getting above is coming after i followed shane video.

Hi @roncam ,

Below is the syntax from a screenshot of Shane's video and yours

Collect(
   Photos,
   {
      Name: "Photo"&X&".jpg",
      ContentBytes:Camera3.Photo,
     '@odata.type':""}
);
Set(X,X+1)

Maybe put the variable set at the start, so it has a value for the first pass (but you are probably getting Photo0.jpg).

The second part

Office365.SendEmail(
   Emailaddress.Text,
   "Device Report",
   HtmlText1.HtmlText, 
   {
      Attachments:Photos,
      IsHtml:true
   }
)

appears to be exactly as per the specs - maybe get rid of the IsHtml - I have never used it and HTML renders perfectly. It is worth a try anyway to see if the specs work without it.
