There is no preliminary viewing of photos in waypoints with photography.

Hello!

There is a waypoint with a photograph. Previously, if you click on it, a preview of the photo with data at the point will appear.


Now I noticed that instead of previewing the photo, there is a www icon with an exclamation mark.

Those photos that were previously visible were not visible now.

Hello,

is the photo file still in its original place?

If you took a photo via Locus, it is stored in "Locus/data/media/photo". But if you add an already existing picture from the gallery, it isn't moved. So if you delete this file from the gallery, or move it somewhere, Locus lost the link to this file.

Regards,

Yes

Photos at the place where they were ("Locus/data/media/photo")

If you click on the www icon, then the photo will be shown.

Newly created photo waypoints have the same problem.

When adding an image from another source: It would make sense to copy the image to " Locus/data/media/photo ".

This way all images are always available in Locus. When I install it on a new device and copy the Locus folder, all data is available. Please change accordingly.

Images are in Locus/data/media/photo.


And from there were not moved or deleted.

Hello,

we have plans to update whole this feature soon, but due to Android 11+ restrictions, it will be the right opposite of what freischneider proposed.

We want to use the DCIM folder by default but hopefully with the possibility to create a custom folder also.

There are still a lot of questions, but if everything goes well, photos then will be part of the sync too.

even more important I think so that the users know what is saved and what is not. And where the not backed up is located.

I know that now after the first data loss. But there are users who build a database with points and information (picture, voice recording...). And after a few years everything is gone.

A hint should at least be in the manual. https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:points:add

at the bottom

And under Backup there should also be a note about saved data: https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tools:backup

It says here that attached media are not backed up. But no hint how I can do that.

There are more things that are not backed up. As far as I know calibrated cards.


There should also be a reference to this help article in the app. E.g. Attention Important read

I have exactly the same problem with 3.61 and Android 10. The photo is in DCIM/subfolder/ But if I tip on the www symbol, the photo is shown as usual.

Photo's in DCIM are shown in the popup but if I tip the tiny photo symbol then again the same popup comes in view with the www symbol. Tipping the www symbol again shows the the full photo.

Hello,

problem with the bad viewing of photos should be updated in the next version.

And if you guys have some tips on how to be handled photos in the future, please create an IDEA. Menion is watching :-)

Have a nice day.

Since we are short before a 3 weeks hike, I am hoping this update is coming soon.

About photo management in general:

I am still organising the photo's on my phone in separate folders. My recent new phone with Android 12 does (also) not allow to switch off any folders within DCIM. I am afraid this will sooner or later slow down Locus. (Note: my wife has about 4500 photo's with location on her phone (Android 11; and it still is not slowing down).

But maybe only showing them in a 100 km circle would be better unless unless the calculation inside for that will be even slower.

Anyway, my only wish for my new (handicapped by Google) phone would be a sidebar button for showing/not showing any photo, a quickswitch.

method to bulk modify the photo location path in all POI/waypoints would be usefull

for moving photo collection around to different folders
