Where can I find the settings of the Camera to change storage location?

2018-08-26, 7:39 AM

When I open my camera app I can't find a setting to change storage location to my sd card. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Assuming that you have the latest camera app (if not please update) follow these steps to change the storage location.
1. Open camera app and swipe right.
2. On the right hand top corner you will see the "Settings". Just tap on it.
3. Under General tab you will see the Storage option. Tap on it and change it to external storage (SD card).
Now it's done! The photos you will click thereafter will be stored in the SD card.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have Camera App Vers. 6.2.5.16 this should be the current version (at least I don't have any update notification).

If I swipe there is no "Settings" in the corner. I have severaly camera settings such as HDR, flash, stabilisation .. but no general settings options. I have swiped to the very left and to the very right ... no settings.

Please refer to the attached GIF for the solution to your query. In this case I have no SD card for which the option is greyed out but you should see the external storage option as you have one.

Ok finally I found the settings (strange enough I had to click away the slow motion icon, then the gear icon appeared). But now I have another problem. The option to change storage place is greyed out. I cannot change the storage to sd card. Any help is appreciated .. thanks. My SD card is formatted as internal storage and I have already moved a few apps. But I cannot move photos which take away most of my storage.

The option is greyed out because the SD card is formatted as internal storage. To use the SD card for storing photos it must be an external storage. You must use the SD card as external storage to store the clicked photos.

Thanks for your reply. And I thought I would need to format it as internal storage. :smileyhappy:
I will try to change the storage type.

Moto Camera got updated today. Now it's much easier to find the settings. It's a spot on, directly on the top right hand corner. Looks like a lot of users like you complained regarding the position of settings for which Moto did this.

Thank you for your help. I was now able to move my photos and choose my sd card as storage for photos. But now I cannot view the photos in my photos app. Is there any other setting I have to take care of or am I not able to see my photos any more?

P.S.: Looks like the photos are partially coming back ... it probably just needs some time until I can see them in the photo app :smileyhappy:

Did you move the entire DCIM folder to the SD card? I think if you do that then the photos will appear on Google Photos.
