Store your images on your external SD card (documentation for Android)

Images of your recipes are stored by default on your emulated SD card, in the directory /sdcard/MyCookBook/images/

If your internal memory is full, you will need to change this path, and move your photos to your external SD card if you have one.

Starting Android 4.4, applications are not allowed anymore to write in any directory on external SD cards. But applications can write data to some specific directories.

To change the directory :

  1. Open the main menu of My CookBook
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Tap on My CookBook Images Directory
  4. Select the directory you want to use. The list may change depending on your device. Your images will be copied there (it may take some time if you have a lot of recipes)





Be careful, some directories (…/Android/data/fr.cookbook/…) are deleted if you uninstall the android app. Your images will be lost if you don’t backup them.
