Add New Photo?

Postby BarbaraValenzuela » Thu Jul 04, 2019 11:02 pm

I see in the "Manage Images" window there is a button "Add New Photo".

I don't understand why this button is there, because in the database, with Photo Picker button the only pictures it shows to pick from is the "Add From Library" button which is not the above mentioned images but from theiPod or iPhone native "Photo Albums" library. At least that is the case on my iPod Touch 5.

I wish I could choose between the photos I take from the "Photo Picker" inside HanDBase "Add From Library", because when I take a picture, decide not to use it and try for another, but the last is worse than the first I can't go back to the first image I just have to keep taking pictures until I think I have a good one, but can never go back to an earlier shot since those don't show up in the "Add from Library" because that is a different collection of photos, on my device anyway.

I tried the other option "Take Picture" for my button instead of "Photo Picker" and get the same result. Am I missing something?

Hope this is as easy for you to solve as my other questions were.

Hi there,

Thanks for writing and for the very good question. The reason you can add a file to the HanDBase library is so that you can reference it by name in a record. Lets say you have pictures of fruits: apples.jpg, oranges.jpg, pears.jpg etc. Now you can add them to the library and reference them by name in the file. The thing is that most of the photos in your photo library are automatically named by the camera/OS. But if you install images a different way it suddenly becomes useful. I doubt it applies to you and what you're trying to do. I think your best option would be to use the built in camera and then select from the photo picker. I know its not a completely built-in solution but it will at least give you the option to choose.
