Camera plugin pickImages

Our app currently allows selecting one image at a time with the getPhoto API function in the Capacitor Camera plugin (which returns DataURLs). I am trying to pick more than one image at a time so I am trying the pickImages API function which returns an array of images (in the webPath property) prefixed with ‘blob:’. How can I convert these paths to DataURLs as the getPhoto function does?

Hi all,
This still has me stumped. Is there a better way for me to be able to select multiple images and present to our API which takes a form containing an array of dataurls?

This seems to be the same as my issue, but the answer does not make sense. Can someone help me? javascript - Ionic Capacitor: How can I change the type of ImagePicker to Base64? - Stack Overflow
