As the image uploaded in Airtable returns the URL of the image, I want to convert the contents of the URL(image) to base64, btoa() converts the URL to base64 but not the content of the URL (Actual Image), I want the uploaded Image in base64 format.
Is there anyway to do this inside automation script?
Without using scripting at all, you can fully automate this by using the Base64 function of Make.com. (You would first need to use the Get A File module to download the image from the URL, and then you can convert it to Base64 afterwards.)
@ScottWorld Is there anyway to do this in automation script and not using Script app?
Because I need to run the automation as soon as a new record is created which sends a POST request with the the attachment image in base64 format, I don’t know how to run script app every time a record is created.
last night I had something similar in front of me and I have now also solved it via the Custom JS Module in make.com using this JS code: Buffer.from((await axios.get(input)).data).toString('base64')
Because here you can see that this module also includes Axios: customjs.space/web-scraping
