    I may just be overlooking some functionality in my stock camera app, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a specific app that makes saving photos into specific folders easy.

    Here is a real-world situation for the type of app that I am looking for:

    I work at a grocery store in the pricing department. Every Monday I do a round of the store to see if there are products on the shelves that don't have price tags. What I do is I take a picture of the product and it's bar code so that when I get back to my desk, I can scan the picture with my scan gun and create a label at my desktop pc. The bad part is that I end up with a whole bunch of pictures of grocery products in my gallery and I have to delete them each to clear out my phone.

    What I need is an app that I can use to create a folder prior to taking the pictures, then, once I am done using the pics for my purpose I can delete the whole folder at once.

    Pretty sure there is no camera app that will do that. The industry standard for all digital cameras (phone or otherwise) is to place the photos in the "DCIM" folder tree.

    After you take all the photos, you can move them into a subfolder, work on them from there, then delete the subfolder.

    Some picture viewer apps will make this process easier than others. I like "piktures" by Diune.

    Most camera apps allow you to save the pictures in any folder, but the folder has to exist first. So you can create the folder, then point the app to it, and take your pictures. When you're done, use a file manager to delete all files in that folder and you can still use the folder the following Monday.

    There's no camera app that allows you to create a folder, that I'm aware of.

    Just browsing the AppSales app and found Sort2Folder.

    " - Photos also have a lot of ways of sort. You can sort photos by date, month, day, year, ISO and exp."

    It can apparently sort files to folders automatically.

    I work in the field on hot tubs and I am attempting to find a similar app.
    My thought is that while there may not be a camera app, there may be an alternative solution in an organization app. Something that would access the camera to add pictures to a folder, possibly even giving you the option to save them to your gallery or ignore them and save them exclusively to that application.
    Any suggestions? Maybe an organizer of sorts? Note taking possibly?

    Any file browser app will do this.
    Just create a new folder, move/copy the pictures out of the DCIM folder tree into the new folder.
    If you want the standard picture viewing apps to ignore the new folder/album, create a file in the folder called ".nomedia".

    "Gallery" is not a location, it is just a picture viewing app.

    If the media indexing service does not notice that you moved the pictures, restart the phone to kick start the service.

    You can install a camera app, specify the folder this app stores pictures to and use this app only on the job. The standard camera will stil store pictures to the standard folder

    I tested all the ones that were available in the Play Store 2 years ago and found CameraFolders to be the best. No ads. FYI the look and feel is a bit lacking and outdated. But it's simple and seems to be centered around functionality.

    It opens up to the folder you were last using with the app. From there, you can create new folders/navigate to the folder you want the series of photos to be in. Then take a pic and you're good to go.

    You can also set the option of launching a rename dialog right after the picture has been taken, as well as a save file pattern (in the app's Settings)

    It's not appearing anywhere near the top in the Play Store, but I found it on apkpure. Not sure if I'm allowed to link stuff, so the logo just looks like this: What is the best Camera app to save pictures in specific folders?-icon.png
