Uploading image via app

I want to create a file upload interface on my custom app so that collaborators/users of the app can upload an image from their file system to the base (instead of using the airtable interface) Is this possible, and if not, can you suggest any workarounds?

Thank you!

Its technically possible, except Airtable’s attachment type fields, when updated through the Custom App API, must be fed a URL of the attachment to upload.

That means users won’t be picking something from their file system, at least not technically. Your app would have to upload the file from their file system to somewhere on the internet (i.e. Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.), and then pass that URL to the attachment field so that the file gets added to the base.
