Improvements to photopoint

Similar to another recent idea of mine

At the moment Photopoint creation creates photo in data/media/photos

which isnt always convenient as takes up internal storage and no organisation


So I never use photopoints, I always create point from geocode photo layer

but this takes a long time to load up

An option to create photo point by taking photo, then asking with a file picker where to save photo would be great

or even being able to change to a custom directory the default location for photos.

If the file picker option isnt possible, changing default location could be really handy

At the moment all my photos are on SD card\Photo\Name of trip\ etc

so all I would need to do on day of trip is change the default photo location to the folder for the day

and hey presto, every time i take photo point the attachment is in the correct folder.

At the moment I take photos with camera, create folder, move them all over from DCIM

open locus w, turn on geotag layer, and one by one turn each geotagged photo in to a point

which is a time consuming repetative process, especially when a large amount of photos, which is quite possible

Photo points are much better than geotagged layers as they can be shown/hidden very quickly and interesting bits of infomation about the photo can be added to the photo point.
