Where do the photos go when downloaded wirelessly to an Android phone?

Hi @nroybrown

 

There is an in-app folder where the files are stored.


Thanks!

Hi,

You have to first save to your app then save to your phone gallery.
This saving method allow user to keep on editing their media and their Stories, once media are out of the app, editing or story-editing becomes complicated, especially if some media are sent to Cloud services. Keeping media inside the app gives more possibility for editing.

Thank you

That explains what was happening and I can now see the files when I download them from the app.

Hello Haindash

Thank you for your reply. 

I have downloaded the images from camera to App, but can't find the way to export them out of the App.

Can you shed some light, again.

Best regards

@kaiakaiak, the file first goes to the GoPro Quik's media folder. Then, you can download the media files from the GoPro Quik app to the native Photos app on your phone.

  1. Locate the clip you would like to share to the Photos app under the APP section. 
  2. Select the [download] icon along the upper right corner. 
  3. Select [Save to Photos] where it will be copied into the native Photos app.

For info - The team is looking at possibilities to allow Users to store media on expandable SD Card. But this is more of a long term work.
