Accessing and Editing Images


gallery screen

Images can be accessed from

  • the inbuilt Gallery Viewer
  • directly from a file explorer
  • directly from a computer (files are on the Internal Storage area)

Images are numbered according to the CD ID as shown on the Edit Details Screen
this is the ID seen on the files and also in the Export Screen
The images can be hidden from the Gallery Viewer using the 'See Images In Gallery' setting

Pressing this setting, toggles if the gallery can see the app images
the Gallery app may need restarting to pick up the changes
Various apps offer the ability to edit image files
most will provide functions such as rotate, auto-contrast and crop
You can start an image editing app directly from the Image Menu on the Edit Details Screen
note that the Gallery Viewer will save new images with a -1 or -2 etc suffix when accessed directly;
in these cases delete the un-suffixed file and rename the suffixed file to have no suffixes
eg. an original file '789.jpg', when edited via Gallery Viewer, creates a file '789-1.jpg'
delete the original '789.jpg' file and then rename '789-1.jpg' to '789.jpg'
the CD Library App will use the '789.jpg' file next time it displays the image
