Hi @hasanm, the Move Binary Data node would simply move data from the binary data part of an n8n item into the JSON part of an n8n item. You can check out the documentation at Move Binary Data - n8n Documentation.

It does not automatically convert file types. So if you move JSON data into a binary file, the binary file will simply contain a JSON structure. Meaning you’d need to provide n8n with the files you want to process in your workflow.
