Method to convert image URLS in text field to image attachments with a formula?

I have a field called “image_url” for hundreds of entries and I’d like to add an extra file attachment field and then have this new field be populated with the images I am linking to in that initial “image_url” field.

In Airtable, I used an extension that did this via some custom code snippet, I believe. I am wondering if Baserow’s formula feature might have some solution for this?

Hello @bfranklin! That’s not possible to convert image URLs into image files with the Baserow formulas as there are no functions to download a file.

Hey @bfranklin! We chatted a bit about this feature, and we want to build it. Here is the link to track the progress: Convert image URLs into image files (#1216) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab.

And hope you don’t mind me changing the category of this topic from Technical Help to Feature Request :slightly_smiling_face:
