I'm pretty inexperienced with Sharepoint design, but have taken on the task of creating a basic issue tracker for a project. The idea is when a user find an issue, they will log it into the Sharepoint with all the issue details and screenshots of the issue or error will be attached to it.

I need an email to be sent to some specified people with details of the list item in a tabular format and attach all the screenshots of the error that is present in the list item.

I know this requires a workflow most likely to achieve, but I'm having difficulty finding an appropriate source of assistance that isn't above my level of understanding.

I have infopath and microsoft flow. Can we do this using any of these. Hopefully I can find some help here. Thanks.

Yes, we could do that using Microsoft Flow, SharePoint designer workflow or Nintex workflow.

Follow the below steps:

    Direct way we can not create attachment column in SharePoint.. you can refer this link for some work around... however, for images you can create pictures type column. sahadevblogs.blogspot.com/2016/08/… I think for new question, it will be better to start a new question, so that other community members also can have their opinion and answer :-)

    Sorry, actually I am held up with my work. I have not done this before using flow but it should be handled by Flow... You are getting the attachment by the get attachment action... Then you are applying for each loop the attachment collection... then inside the foreach loop you are reading content of each attachment... once you are here you can read the each individual attachment file type like image or any other... Here whichever image file add those into a new column header in your email body... the way you are doing for other types at present.
