Please can you give more details ? Where is the image stored ? How are you accessing, what is the flow trigger ? What is the action you are using ?

@Scalcagno ohh, but like I said earlier there is no direct way of doing what you need and if you go with premium connectors only they can help.

@jinivthakkar do you have an idea or suggestion how to achieve it with premium connectors ?

Hi @Scalcagno, did you see this? 

hi @VictorIvanidze  I saw it yes and it works with exif data but not with the iptc data which has much more information such as Location, Country, Headline, Category etc.
