Do not store Images in Gallery


  • From my windows 8.1 application, I have to send images (from camera) to an external storage and the requirement also

    states that we should NOT store them in the media library.

    Is there a way where I can store images in app specific memory instead of storing in media library.

    Even if we have to store in media library, can we erase it via application?

    Any other ideas are appreciated.

  • Hi,

    All pictures, videos, and panoramas you take with the Camera app are saved to your camera roll. There are different ways you can look at your camera roll. This is default and you cant change it.

    Thus you must go to the Pictures folder, and then to the Camera roll folder to access these photo.
