Copying Images from Facebook or Instgram social media platforms

I created an app which allows users to upload their photos so that an album is created for them. How do I make the image column for the photo copy directly from social media platforms like Facebook?

Usually an Image type colum allows one to either take a picture or copy from the phone or machine? I want users to be able to copy directly from their Facebook accounts.

That’s not possible.

You could use zapier to pull the image url directly from instagram, but it only works with new post. However, the workaround is you can *archive the post and then *show it on profile again which will trick zapier into thinking it’s a new post. So far this is the only workaround I have besides doing it manually one by one. Hope this helps. I believe it’s possible for facebook too.
