How do I create an Azure server VM without a datacenter edition?

Its been a few months since I started work on my azure server and vm's. During the last round of server, I could create any edition I wanted. What I'm looking for is 2019 or 2022 standard, not datacenter which is many times more expensive. The dropdown shows just about everything except "Standard". Where can I find the standard licenses for my server image?

Azure Marketplace not supports versions other than Datacenter Server versions. You can see some details on it from this Microsoft reference here: server-software-support

You can upload your own Windows image in any version by following the steps explained below:

yikes that's new. Huge difference in license cost there.

even a link here to "try 2019 standard on azure" : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/download-windows-server-2019
