The majority of my pictures are dropbox links which I’ve set to view as images in my app.
I can’t render these in a PDF because PDF doesn’t support linked images, only embedded ones.
- Will I need to upload all my pictures as standard pictures for my print PDF template to work?
- Will moving over to v2 Files enable me to render the linked photos as pictures in my PDF template?
Welcome to other suggestions and workarounds.
I had the same problem. Finally I automatized a bot in Google Cloud Platform that print pdf with links photo.
This looks like what I’m trying to achieve!
Is there a specific Google cloud tool you used to do this?
Hi @Dani, I developed a python script (python-doc library is essensial) that scheduled in Virtual Machine in Google Cloud Platform. I get the data using tadabase api (string data, number data, url photo data, etc) and print pdf report with this data.
I think that this script can deploy in Amazon Web Service too or in another cloud service.
