Pen input save image to SharePoint

Ok, So i have spend 16 hrs trying to figure this out. I have read everything on the inetrnet it seems and still cant grasp how to save the image from a pen input to a sharpoint list, 


here is my scenario. 

I have an App that is meant to allow our technicians in the field to fill out a contract and have the customer sign it at which point the app captures the text inputs, stores them in a collection & sends to sharepoint. I am planning to use flow to render a PDF that has all the legal mumbo jumbo and text inputs on it as well as the signature captured in the app and then email this to the customer as well as store it in our system.  I can not for the life of me figure out how to get the Pen input image to show up in sharepoint so that i can then include it on the PDF. 


Anyone? Please help! i want to pull my hair out and then jump off a bridge. Below is what i have.

Re: Pen input save image to SharePoint

An easy and multi-purpose solution is found to add pen-input to Sharepoint/Email/PDF thanks to the addition of a PowerApps Json functionality added on 02/05/2019.

The Short description on how to make this work is to save the pen input image in a JSON format asking the JSON function to include Binary Data:

Set( PenVar, JSON( PenInput1.Image,JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData ) );
