Hi @TheeNate 

Good question.

You will need some way to select the next photo.

What is your search criteria?

You’ll probably need to log the data in a GSheet or Airtable.

Then you can lookup and update which have been used.

What do you mean search criteria? I have a folder of photos. I what to set up a zap, and selects a photo at random.(from google drive?) and post’s it to istagram. Is there already a solution for this?

There isn’t a search option to pick a file at random.

You’ll probably need to log the file data in a GSheet or Airtable.

Then you could assign some sort of random value and sort by that value and pick the next file record.
