    Using the PushOver app ( I can easily send a message with powershell.  It supports adding image attachments but this part I haven't been able to figure out.

    $uri = ""
    $parameters = @{
    token = "myapptoken"
    user = "myusertoken"
    message = "the message"
    title = "the title"
    Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $uri -Method Post -Body $parameters

    That will cause the message to appear on my phone.

    However if I look at their FAQs (

    It says I need to do the following:

    [other HTTP headers]
    Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=--abcdefg
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="user"
    [ your Pushover user key ]
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="token"
    [ your Pushover API token ]
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="message"
    your message here
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="attachment"; filename="your_image.jpg"
    Content-Type: image/jpeg
    [ raw binary data of image file here ]

    I've tried various solution from bing'ing rest uploads, but none work.  I always get 400 bad request.

    Most recently I tried this with no luck:

    $FilePath = 'c:\users\stephen\pictures\mypic.jpg';
    $Uri = '';
    function AddData{
    $stringHeader = [System.Net.Http.Headers.ContentDispositionHeaderValue]::new("form-data")
    $stringHeader.Name = $Name
    $StringContent = [System.Net.Http.StringContent]::new($Value)
    $StringContent.Headers.ContentDisposition = $stringHeader
    return $StringContent
    $multipartContent = [System.Net.Http.MultipartFormDataContent]::new()
    $multipartContent.Add((AddData -Name "token" -Value "token"))
    $multipartContent.Add((AddData -Name "user" -Value "usertoken"))
    $multipartContent.Add((AddData -Name "message" -Value "the message"))
    $multipartContent.Add((AddData -Name "title" -Value "the title"))
    $multipartFile = $FilePath
    $FileStream = [System.IO.FileStream]::new($multipartFile, [System.IO.FileMode]::Open)
    $fileHeader = [System.Net.Http.Headers.ContentDispositionHeaderValue]::new("form-data")
    $fileHeader.Name = "attachment"
    $fileHeader.FileName = 'Jay_Small.jpg'
    $fileContent = [System.Net.Http.StreamContent]::new($FileStream)
    $fileContent.Headers.ContentDisposition = $fileHeader
    $fileContent.Headers.ContentType = [System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeHeaderValue]::Parse("image/jpg")
    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $uri -Body $multipartContent -Method 'POST' #-ContentType "multipart/form-data;"

    So, the difficulty here is that you're really doing low-level .NET programming, just as someone would do in C#. This isn't "PowerShell" per se; you might have better luck asking on a dev-centric site like Even if you found a working example in C#, it'd be easy to translate that into PowerShell, if that's what you need to do.
