Photo storage

When you are taking photos of student work in the annotations, what resolution does the app take them in? I'm thinking that if I'm taking lots of pictures of student work, will my iPad storage be filled up fairly quickly?

If I delete the picture from the photo roll, does it then delete from the app?

I'm assuming that if I back the data up to Dropbox, then all pictures, videos and audio files will also be backed up?

Also, any future plans for Google Drive sync?

Thanks and good work on the app.

Hi there Jimpots,
You'll find here all the answers related to taking photos
All images/video are stored in the photo roll (and kept in a separate album if enabled) , so it is not included in the conventional iDoceo backup.
Audio files on the other hand are stored locally and included in backups.
As it is not the first time we read about this concern, we will try to add in our next major update a 'photo quality' setting, and the option to store all images&video inside the app, as it does with regular files and audio.
At first it seemed pretty flexible to add those images in the iPad's camera roll, but it has some serious constraints storing and deleting images in Albums.
Google Drive is in our to-dos list!

Excellent, thanks for getting back to me.

I probably won't start using the app in anger until the photo documentation is sorted as I need to be able to archive examples of student work to show progression etc....

Sounds like you've got a few promising updates on the way though and I love the concept of the annotations facility.

Thanks again.
