“External Server Can't Access Photos Uploaded to GPT

Hello OpenAI Community,

I’m facing an issue with image uploads through ChatGPT and am seeking some insights.

I’ve been trying to upload images via ChatGPT and use the generated URLs for processing by an external server. However, it seems that the URLs provided by OpenAI after image uploads are not accessible by the external server. When I attempt to directly access these URLs, I encounter an error stating “The specified blob does not exist.”

Here’s what happens:

  1. I upload an image through ChatGPT.
  2. OpenAI provides a URL for the uploaded image.
  3. When this URL is used by an external server for processing, the server cannot access the image.
  4. Directly accessing the URL results in an error message about a missing blob.

Has anyone experienced similar issues with accessing image URLs generated by OpenAI in external servers? Is there a known reason why these URLs might not be accessible or any known workaround for this?

Thanks in advance for your help!
