Attaching images to Sanity editor using generated blobs

Last updated: Oct 8, 2020
Hello folks, I'm wondering if it's possible to attach on the editor a blob as an actual image?What I'm thinking of is...

1. On the editor, I put a title and a description
2. There is a button called "Generate og:image"
3. If I click it, it creates a blob of image on the browser
4. It is attached as an actual image
5. It will be uploaded to sanity cdn.
6. During the build time (or on the server) the url is used for 'og:image' tag.

I'm curious about (4). I might need to dig more into sources of image type. But has anyone done something similar already?

Hey it helped a lot! Inspired by you, I'm having a slightly different approach. I'm hosting sanity studio on vercel and created an api which generates image using puppeteer and set the image to the document using sanity client πŸ™‚
So the frontend of the studio just calls the api with
id, title, description
