I would like to know if theres a way to modify images that are fed to my glide app.
Example: 3 images are submitted, place one image as a background with the two others inset, cropped as a circle and spaced a certain distance apart.
Not that I’m aware of. I think people generally use cloudinary for image manipulation.
@ionamol for keying me into Cloudinary for on the fly, URL based image editing! This awesome resource allowed me to gray out badges that haven’t yet been earned by the user—
Started by uploading the image into Cloudinary and then using the built in tools to generate the new URL. Used this URL schema to create this formula:

Then, simply created an if/then in Glide. If the badge was owned by the user, then use the colored URL, i…
Okay thanks for that. I will check them out🤙
If you have a fixed idea of how to manipulate those 3 images then Cloudinary is indeed the way to go.
The idea here is to fetch one image to use as the background, then convert the other 2’s URLs to base64 and use them as layers.
I saw Robert Petito’s Videos (on his youtube channel) about this which are so informative.
Though there doesn’t seem to be a way to automatically turn an image URL into base 64?
I saw someone who uses a sheets formula but it seems to work alongside a script.
Any ideas on how to automatically convert an image url to base64 without scripts or coding?
