read images from google drive

I’ve tried to read multipage tif files from google drive but didn’t succeed. I want to read all tif files stored in a google drive folder using the image reader node. I’ve used the google drive connector node followed by a list files node to get a list of all files. This list is of data type “Path”. Connecting this directly to the input of the image reader node doesn’t work because it needs file type string. But if I add a “Path to String” node the image reader still can’t read the images and now I wonder if it is possible at all to read images directly from google drive.


Hi Christian,

I am pretty certain that it’s currently not possible. At least in the past, I have downloaded the files to a temp directory from Google Drive using the Transfer Files (Table) node and fed the local paths to the Image Reader.

Best regards,


Thanks Stefan,

Your solution works fine!
