When an item or file is modified>Condition>Send email with attachments

Hi all, Flow is in the title - I’m wondering how to add attachments to an email. I have done Get file metadata and then Get file content to no avail. Also do I have to attach them to an individual item or can I source them from a folder/library? I don’t want them attached to an individual entry as there are a lot of list items. What would the flow look like. What would I put in Get File Metadata, Get File Content etc Thanks

Thanks - that definitely helped for single attachments. My issue now is it won't let me attach multiple documents following the video in the link above. 

I tried Get meta data 1, get file content 1 and then again Get meta data 2 and file content 2 but it comes up with an error. I read that an array must be used? Do you know how I would configure the flow in that way?


My flow is below. I have inserted Get file meta data and then Get file content directly after When an items is created or modified. 

I saw this - Advanced | Flow of the Week: Send multiple attachments on a single email | Power Automate Blog (micr... - but seems to be for attachments on an item in a SharePoint list. My documents are not attached to a list but are on a SharePoint site - is there any way of doing this when the attachments are not in a list?
