Image attached to field note is not uploaded / not foundable

Barbudor shared this problem 2 years ago
Solved

Hi


This morning I have taken and attached a photo to a GC field note.

Once uploaded to GC web site as notes (not log), the picture was not uploaded.

This was the 1st time I ever tried this.


If I open the GC and then open the note in Locus, the picture is still here. (see attached picture)

However I have no way to get this picture :

- no download/save button

- can't be found anywhere in my sdcard (where are the field notes stored ?)

- the photo is not visible in add-on FieldNote

- Locus crashes if I try to send the note from Locus (instead of from add-on)


I am still very confused with regards to relations between Locus and add-on FieldNotes. It looks like the note entry is performed in Locus. Then we have to open add-on to select which notes to upload. When we select 'upload' it looks like the add-on revert to Locus to perform the effective uploading... I still don't understand the benefit of the add-on versus the previous method.


Thanks.

Good day Barbudor,


sorry for a troubles. Let solve it ... seems that uploading of photos really isn't much clear. Because only way, how you may get photos to web is over Log > Log your visit. So first option in "Log" menu. Field notes (offline and also uploaded to geocaching.com), do not support images! So try this and let me know.


Few more notes:


- the photo is not visible in add-on FieldNote

As I know, this add-on still do not support images


- Locus crashes if I try to send the note from Locus (instead of from add-on)

best to report crashes: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:how_to_create_debug_log


- I still don't understand the benefit of the add-on versus the previous method.

Add-on offers a lot more options that offered old system in Locus. You are anyway not the first and probably not the last who ask this question, so I more consider creating of add-on as not-perfectly implemented decision, which needs some improvements.

Thanks.


I now that if I attach a picture to a waypoint/geocache I will be able to find the JPG file in ../Locus/data/media/photo

But where is the file attached to this log ?

No other way to get it back than posting the log to GC.com ?


Thanks in advance.


best regards

This is correct, "no other way". Attached photos resized and stored in internal database.
