when a picture is added to a folder on one drive send an email through o365 outlook

I want to make a flow that whenever i copy and paste or add a new file (specially pictures) to the "test flow" folder on Onedrive for business, to send an email in outlook o365 to people in the organization. here is a test example of how i set it up. it works if i add a new .txt file directly to the folder but not when i add a photo from another folder

Hi,

 

According to our documentation this is a known limitation. I've pasted it below;

 

This operation triggers a flow when a new file is created in a folder. Files larger than 50 MB will be skipped and not returned by this trigger. Files moved within OneDrive are not considered new files.

 

Regards,

Is there a way to modify this flow so that anytime anything is put in the folder on OneDrive whether it be from with inside OneDrive or from say my Desktop to the folder that it will email me everytime?

So it looks like even files are moved into OneDrive from another folder outside OneDrive, the flow still cannot be triggered .So the solution is to copy/paste them into the OneDrive folder (which is working flawlessly). Do you know if there a way to trigger the flow if I "move", instead of copy/paste the picture into the folder? Also, how do i make this flow happen around 10 seconds after i copy the picture to the OneDrive folder?
