Troubleshooting GPT-4 Vision with Google Drive

Dear Make Community,

I’m having trouble adding the GPT-4 Vision (gpt-4-vision-preview model) into my Make scenario. My goal is to use this model for an image-to-text extraction. However, I’m encountering a problem that I can’t seem to fix.

My flow

  • Scenario1: I’ve connected my GoogleDrive to watch for new images in a folder.
  • Scenario2: Within the ‘OpenAI - Analyze Images’ module, I’ve linked my ‘Web View Link’.
  • Result: “The operation failed with an error. [400] You uploaded an unsupported image. Please make sure your image is below 20 MB in size and is of one the following formats: [‘png’, ‘jpeg’, ‘gif’, ‘webp’].”


  • I have tried to include every single item that has a URL from my GoogleDrive, no luck.
  • I’ve also tested it using a Google Images picture, and it worked. So it must be the Image Link connection that I am using.
  • The image file size is 3Mb.

I am curious as to how you all are linking your images to be analyzed?

Welcome to the Make community!

1. You’ll have to use “Get a Share Link” to get the “Web Content Link” for upload via URL, or


2. Use a “Download a File” to get the Image Data for mapping as a data file
