Convert pdf to jpg, tiff, png, via a flow command.

I was looking for a way to convert a pdf to some bitmap file, since using PDFs in the PDF control in Powerapps is such a pain in the rear with regards to CORS, etc.  Is this a viable avenue?  

 

Thanks.

This thread did what I needed perfectly with the PDF file so no conversion necessary.  Far less convoluted, free, fast, and effective.

Be sure to read the whole thread to catch the detail of "encodeUriComponent" command if you are using dynamic content.  This stuff is so non-intuitive. 

 

Props to @AlanC for this one.

I think you can use the Plumsail Documents - Convert PDF to Image in the flow. Please find the attached screen shot for your reference.

That is great, but it is a subscription.  I cannot impose a monthly fee forever for this function.

Ok. In that case you will have to do some custom coding to achieve this. I am not sure but in my opinion you can write an azure function to convert pdf to image which can be called by PowerApps. Please refer below link
