How to save photos to local devices

Hello,

 

I am trying save photos taken from camera to local devices. According to the turorial, I used SaveData function, it seems not working. Any suggestion?

Camera:

 - OnSelect: Collect(colImages, Camera1.Photo)

Gallery:

- Items: colImages

Button:

- OnSelect: SaveData(colImages, "Images")

 

I am not sure how to use SaveData correctly.

Hi

 

We had shared before in the forum. Please search for it.

I try to include my example here and this is similar to that of Camera.

 Feel free to try out.

Hello,

Sorry for the long response.

As far as I understand, with your approach, it will save the photos into excel files, won't it?

What I try to do is to save the images directly to local devices (e.g: camera roll (ios), pictures (windows). etc.)

Hi

Um..Yes, it will save into a pre-defined folder or auto-generated folder for all the images.

And, these folders are in the Cloud (here..Dropdox) and if it is available in Dropbox (Local), then you will also see the similar folder names.

So, if your handphone is also connected with Dropbox, you will see the same things.

That's what PowerApps can do (so far as I know).

So, if you wish to save into roll / pictures, the only way (for me) is just copy / move.

 

Hope this clarifies my misunderstanding!
