Hi - I’m creating an outbound RSS Feed and I want to include an image in the feed. I’ve got the URL of the image I want to send via RSS Feed. How EXACTLY do I set up the ZAP to include the image?

Specifically, the Zapier RSS Feed | Create Item in Feed requests the following fields:

Feed URL: I understand this. NO questions here.

Feed Title: I’m using “A1 Image” (Image for article #1)

Max Records: 1  (I just want to send one image per feed)

Item Title: A1 Image

Source URL: Zapier.com (using default since this is a Zapier-driven RSS Feed)

Content: WHAT DO I PUT HERE?

<Skip Author Link, Author Name, Author Email for now>

Media URL: WHAT DO I PUT HERE?

Media MIME Type: WHAT DO I PUT HERE?

Media Length in Bytes: WHAT DO I PUT HERE? (Each image file will be a different size)

Pubdate: Now

An example of my image URL: https://www.jotform.com/uploads/SocialStream/211865224136149/5022044048129213743/ibis.jpg

(The image files are publicly accessible)

NOTE: I want to send the physical media file NOT the URL.
