IPhone :: 4s - Why Does It Duplicate Pictures In Camera Roll
Jul 2, 2012
Every time I take a picture with my iPhone 4s, a duplicate appears in my camera roll a few seconds later. At first I thought it had to do with the HDR feature, so I turned the "Keep normal photo" setting off. It didn't make the slightest difference.
Both pics are exact copies. The only differences are the size (one would be around 800k, the other one around 2.5MB) and the name (the largest one adds -1 at the end of it).
After restoring to a new phone (I again had a wallpaper get locked into place on me, and couldn't change it) I lost all my pictures.I want to know if there's any way I can get them back into my camera roll other than emailing them to myself, opening up the pictures, and saving each and every one of them.It would be really convenient if there were a folder I can put my pics into using SSH.and I've SSH'd before, so I have WinSCP, but I forgot if all I need on my iPhone is OpenSSH or is there something else?
My iPhone 3 G S when I take a picture the picture does not show in the camera roll when I try to view! I deleted all my pictures in camera roll thinking when I take a picture it will not show in camera roll?I power off the phone and turn on and I cleared all pics from camera roll while sync. Thank you.
Let me explain my situation. Every now and then when something unfortunate happens I have to do a restore as new phone. I want to keep the pictures in my camera roll so I access the phone as a camera copy the picture and put them in a folder called camera roll. The thing is it always labels the pictures img_1, img_2 ...etc and so if I repeat this process more than once it just copies over the old pictures.
Is there a way around this or maybe some way to make the file the date it was taken? I know my razr did it just wondering if the iphone can. Btw im on windows if that makes a difference. Thanks
I just installed Windows 7 on my computer and forgot to back up my pictures. All the pictures in my Camera Roll are fine but I had another folder from my last restore. How can I take these pictures off my phone then re sync them?
I took all kinds of videos and photos today and none are showing up in my camera roll. When I took/take them they show up on the bottom of my screen like usual. However, when I go to my photos and go to my camera roll no photos or video are showing up from today. I have locked and unlocked, reset my phone and everything. Nothing is saving my photos. My phone worked perfectly normal yesterday. And I thought it was today, but I guess not.
Just a few days ago, for some reason my iPhone 3GS stopped saving the pictures and vids that I take in Camera Roll.The most recent photo in my Camera Roll is from 4 days ago. I did not upgrade my OS/firmware.I read somewhere that it might be saving it to the root directory. If that's the case, how do I access it? And how do I change where the pics are being saved to back to what it should be?I'm guessing there's an app that allows you to look at your files on your iPhone as if you were looking at it like a hard drive, but I'm not sure which one is the best nor do I know its capabilities.Suggestions?
I have a 4S running on iOS 5.0. I reset my phone a few weeks ago when I was playing around, and I restored it from my iCloud backup. Everything was fine except the filename counter for my pictures was also reset to IMG0001. I transfer pictures to my computer regularly so now I have many pictures with duplicated names, such as IMG0001.JPG and IMG0001 (2).JPG. This is much of an annoyance but I can live with that.
However I have even weirder things happening now. Let's say before I reset my phone I had shot a vidoe and the name was IMG0010.MOV. After the reset of course the video is gone, and I take pictures with my phone as usual. So I took a picture whose name as IMG0010.JPG again, and when I try to see it in the camera roll, I see the first frame of my old video! In the thumbnail view it is the right picture, but when I tap on it to view it, it shows my newly taken picture for about half a second, and then displays my old video. I guess there must be some old cache on my phone that override the picture display. Does anyone know how to fix it?
I should add that the picture is also displayed wrongly in my photo stream folder on the phone. On the other hand when I access the picture from the computer (in the DCIM folder, and in the synced photo stream folder) it is the right one. But I want to view the pictures on my phone! I can't take my computer with me anytime!
I have now created new albums on my phone and added photos to it from my orginal camera roll. Can I now delete those pictures from the orginal camera roll without deleting them from my phone completely?
I updated from 4.0 to 5.1 and now when i open my camera roll it says there are no pictures and or videos taken. It says to take pictures click on the camera or whatever. So i do and i take a picture and try an look at it an there is no picture in my camera. I have completely restored it twice, rebooted many times, turned it off an on. I backed up everything after i updated i restored my contacts and such. Anyone know what i can do?
i have added pictures from my camera roll into different albums. but every time i try to delete the ones from the camera roll, it asks if i want to delete the picture from everywhere or cancel. how do i keep them in the other albums, but delete them from the camera roll?
I'm trying to cut down on unnecessary storage space, and for some reason there is a gigabyte and a half of photos (1,109 pictures it says) listed in the iTunes usage display, when I have exactly 4 pictures in my camera roll, no videos.Â I've imported all the photos I've taken to iPhoto on my macbook, but those wouldn't affect the storage on my iPhone.... right? Is there something incredibly obvious I'm missing
Yesterday i had restore my phone due to it crashing. I also couldn't turn it off because my lock button is broken.I was advised to restore it.I used the option keep all media. After the restore it asked me if I wanted to backup from the icloud which was last done at 9:30 that morning! However no pictures or video have gone to the camera roll.
Pictures have appeared on photostream so they are ok. But from my understanding Icloud does backup video but just not onto photostream. how to get the videos back.?
I never set up photstream until after I put 600 pics on my camera roll. I just set up photostream today and it says that all recent pics i take from now will go into photostream? Two main questions? HOw do I see my pics in Itunes?How do I put my camera roll into photostream? I would like my pics to go to Icloud.
Anyone have a black block when they click on their camera roll? I can still view my photos if I tap one of them, but when I back out, instead of seeing thumbnails, I see just blackness. Is this a bug or what? I tried restoring twice from my backup to no avail.
Is there an app in cydia or the app store that allows me to navigate through the file folders within my iphone and make changes? Basically, I have multiple folders/albums in the photo app. Each labeled for different types of photos. Well, when I take pictures with my phone, everything goes into the camera roll. Then I have to connect my phone to my macbook and use iphoto to reorganize the photos in my camera roll to the designated folders and then sync my phone with itunes. I was looking for an app that would let me simply go into the file system and copy the photos in my camera roll and place them into my labeled folders.
