Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

How To Save Photos On SDCard In CyanogenMod/Android

My CyanogenMod (11)/Android (4.4) phone was saving photos to internal memory by default but I wanted to save photos to my sdcard.

I found how to change the camera storage option in this forum thread. Here I document the process using screenshots.

First start up the Camera app.

Next tap/select the “options” icon (it is an unfilled circle that may contain icons on top).

Then tap/select the “settings” icon (it is three horizontal lines with sliders on top).

Choose the options icon and then the settings icon

Choose the options icon and then the settings icon

From the SETTINGS menu that you are now seeing tap/select the “more settings” icon (it is identical to the same three horizontal lines with sliders on top that you tapped previously).

Select the more settings icon

Select the more settings icon

How you see the MORE SETTINGS menu. From here you can select “Storage” to choose the destination for photos.

Select Storage from the More Options menu

Select Storage from the More Options menu

Lastly select “SD card” as the desired destination (or “Internal” if you wish to switch back).

Select destination for the saved photos

Select destination for the saved photos

All done!
