Hi friends,

this extension is a ImagePicker, to open Gallery we need a normal button.

With ImagePicker original we can store a maximum of 10 images, those images are stored in:
/mnt/sdcard/Pictures/_app_inventor_image_picker
(/storage/emulated/0/Pictures/_app_inventor_image_picker)

With this ImagePicker extension we can store a maximum of 1000 images, the default store directory is:
/mnt/sdcard/Pictures/_app_inventor_image_picker

but you can create a new directory to store images.





Regards.

Juan Antonio Villalpando.

Interesting, but I'm missing something here.

With a text List Picker, I have ways to change the Elements list as needed.

This extension uses a directory as its Elements equivalent.

So to use this Image Picker, i would probably need to use
a file extension to gather my image files into my directory,
say in a filtering situation?

With ImagePicker original we can store a maximum of 10 images,
the activity starter solution does not have such restrictions... How to pick an image using the activity starter
no need for an extension...

Thank you Abraham, this is a version of original ImagePicker, it hasn't filters images.
The main features are that you can save up to 1000 images and you can create a new directory to save them.

The images will be saved in the following way:
/storage/emulated/0/Pictures/_app_inventor_image_picker/img_123456789.jpg
(/mnt/sdcard/Pictures/_app_inventor_image_picker/img_123456789.jpg)

or

/storage/emulated/0/yourcreatedirectory/img_123456789.jpg
(/mnt/sdcard/yourcreatedirectory/img_123456789.jpg)
