If image Action(Power Automate Desktop)


Japanese version.

This action is a companion to the "If" action and branches processing conditional on the presence or absence of an image.

How to use

Drag "If image" from "UI automation" under "Actions".

(moved from "Conditions" to "UI Automation" in the October 27, 2021 update)

Set parameters.


If image

Specifies whether the image "exists" or "doesn't exist", whichever is True.


Captures images of the target to be conditioned.

The larger the image, the heavier the processing will be, so it is more efficient to limit the range as much as possible. Also, since images that are scaled up or down are considered separate, the magnification should be set to 100%.

(Unless you use Power Automate Desktop to change the magnification.)

The tolerance values described below can be adjusted to some extent, but it is difficult to be practical.
Multiple images can be specified, in which case "Search all images in the list" specifies "All exist" or "Any of them exist".

Search for Image on

Specify whether to search the entire image or only the active window.

The larger the search area, the higher the probability of a match, but the slower the process.

Search Mode

When a sub-area is specified, the position is also specified by X and Y coordinates.

A narrower search range is possible.

Find all images in the list

If multiple images are specified, ON means True if all of them exist.

OFF: True if any of the images exist.


The higher the value, the more ambiguous the image search, but the heavier the search process and the greater the possibility of false positives.

Image matching algorithm

Select either "Basic" or "Advanced". Which one is appropriate depends on the image and screen, so verify by actually running the system.
