Create Post with Image

Using the Linkedin Voyager API, we can create a post with an image. We need to set the shareMediaCategory to IMAGE and provide the originalUrl of the image.
url = "https://api.linkedin.com/v2/ugcPosts"
data = {
"author": f"urn:li:person:{urn}",
"lifecycleState": "PUBLISHED",
"specificContent": {
"com.linkedin.ugc.ShareContent": {
"shareCommentary": {"text": post_message},
"shareMediaCategory": "NONE"
}
},
"visibility": {"com.linkedin.ugc.MemberNetworkVisibility": "PUBLIC"}, #PUBLIC, CONNECTIONS
}
response = requests.post(url, headers=headers, data=json.dumps(data))
print(response.json())
