    Photo gallery picker possible ?

    Hi,

    Is it possible for an app to starts the N8 photos gallery, let the user choose a photo and then return the result to the app ? I've tried searching but cannot find anything.

    Thanks.

    Although it might be marked as deprecated, you can check if MGFetch API still exists and works.

    Sounds like it's a lot of work that's need doing. I guess this is why iOS and Android are much more popular with developers! coming from an ex-Symbian employee, it hurts :-)

    MGFetch takes couple of lines of code, thus I would not consider it too much work really..

    Sure, but it doesn't look the same the phone's Photos viewer. I've got the same problem with the Camera, i.e. it's fine if I want to pop up the viewfinder for the user's to take a photo, but what I actually want to do is use the Phone's Camera app. Every other OS does it, why is S60 different!

    for the phone's camera app, have a look into new file service API, it does just that. Also allows you to use recorder.

    Thanks lots. I'll look into that API. You're a lifesaver.
