Dive site pictures, cities map picture, and other pictures issues

Post by DavidJ »

Hello all

I've been looking at the forum and I do not find a post about my issue, but I guess it has already been solved.

When I link a picture to any item (either the map section in "cities & Islands, or the photo section in "dive sites", or even the logstamps and equipment pictures....)... any picture I load into the system is shown on the android app with very low resolution... not enought to read the info...
I have the directory in the PC (under "diving log/Pictures" folder) and I can see the pictures with perfect resolution. Sometime ago, I used to copy that "pictures" folder in the "diving log" folder on android and it worked on android too... I could see those pictures at good size and resolution

It used to work, but since android 11 and the storage requirement changes, it does not work any more... I can only see a small, pixelated image...

How Can I solve thsi issue??

I'm speaking about the pictures loaded in the different logbook items, I'm not speaking about photos and photo manager (I still do not use that feature)

thank you

Hi

Yes, pictures is unfortunately difficult to get right across platforms. I will try to get this better working with the "relative path" feature, because absolute path names won't work on multiple devices.

Are you sure? Have you used relative path names in this case?

With the new requirement, the path for images has now changed and Diving Log is using the "Pictures" folder in the root of Android, sub folder "Diving Log". So you can try to use this folder to see if you get it working again.
