Timeshift Burst Extra Photos

Hi,

 

I have taken a photo using the camera Timeshift Burst, which works great.. but the problem is when i goto select images for e.g. facebook upload, text, whats app etc... I see all of the photos from that timeshift burst and not just the single one i selected from the timeshift burst.

 

Is there a way to only keep one of the photos from a timeshift burst and to delete the rest?

 

The extra photos don't show up in the normal Album app, only when I goto selcting a photo for use elsewhere. Also they show up if i sync them to my computer etc.

 

Neil

If you want to see the burst photos 

 

Album > My albums > SD card or Internal > fastburst camera

Re: Timeshift Burst Extra Photos

Hi,

 

No.. viewing them is fine, but the problem i am having is e.g. when i goto send a text message and attach a photo, i see all of the burst photos in the selection.

 

So for example i only have about 40 photos in my album, i will see an extra 25 or so more from the burst photo.

 

Is there a way to delete the burst photos and only keep the one photo from the burst i want to keep.. or when selecting an image to only see the main selected burst photo and not all of them.

If I'm not mistaken you have to delete them manually.

Re: Timeshift Burst Extra Photos

Hi,

 

How can I manually delete them?

 

Is there a forum somewhere to request this as a future feature to be able to delete the extra burst photos from the burst.. so a button to say choose this photo and delete the rest in the burst?

Re: Timeshift Burst Extra Photos

way one: preinstalled file manager if you still have it installed (you can find them in DCIM -> XPERIA -> TIMESHIFT folder)

way two: connect it to PC, open in Windows Explorer, find the same folder, and annihilate Winking Face

 

EDIT: sorry, we crossposted

Re: Timeshift Burst Extra Photos

After taking the picture there should be an option to choose between:
- save only 1 picture
- save a few selected pictures
- save all poctures

I think that it should not be that hard for devs. 
Thank you,
