Download images from powerbi report

Hi there! I am trying to download images from a powerbi report.
I already tried to use Powerbi API in Python but didn't get any results.
I need to obtain images of the graphs in this report, ideally using python or R, any help is appreciated

Hi @GustavoSotoT 

 

For direct image extraction using APIs, as of my last update, Power BI does not provide a direct API to extract images of visuals from reports. The Power BI REST API primarily focuses on operations such as pushing data into datasets, creating reports, and managing workspaces.

While not directly using Python or R, another workaround is to export your Power BI reports to PDF and then use Python libraries such as PyMuPDF or PyPDF2 to extract images from the PDF. This method is more of a workaround and might not yield the highest quality images as directly exporting them as images from Power BI.
