Save multiple images to Dropbox


Go to solution Solved by gazumped,

Recommended Posts

I have some post cards I would like to scan and save to Dropbox. If I use Scannable to take a picture of the front and back, then send to Dropbox, only the first picture I scanned is saved. Is there a way to save both as separate files to Dropbox?

An even better solution is to have one image file with the front / back in the image. Am I correct in thinking this is not possible with Scannable?

Hi. The basic problem may be that an image file can't contain more than a single image.  Take a picture of side 1 and call the file <document>side1.jpg (or .png,  whatever...) tale a picture of side 2 and call it <document>side2.jpg.  Or save to PDF format which can save more than one image.  Or use third-party image software to join the two images into one.

Thanks. Am I correct in that if I take two pictures using Scannable, I cannot save each as a separate file name? So if I wanted pictures of the postcards instead of a PDF, I would take a picture of side 1, save it, then take a picture of side 2, then save it?

You're correct that it's not possible (AFAIK) to take two pictures and then save them both.  Another option here might be to save the pictures to Evernote via the in-app camera,  which (on most mobile devices) will allow you to take several pictures and store them in one note.
