Can some demonstrate all the methods and function of the photos module? I'm have trouble using create_image_asset(). I want to take a photo and save it to a perticular album. After that I want the photo sent via email and then deleted for the album.

@ccc when I take a pic with the capture_image() how do I name it so I can pass it to create_image_asset() then send it via a mime email.
@resserone13 create a photo in camera roll via
import photos import os pil_image = photos.capture_image() # returns a PIL Image path = 'new.jpg' pil_image.save(path, format='JPEG') photos.create_image_asset(path) os.remove(path)
@resserone13 to send a captured photo via email, you don't need to save it first in the camera roll. Not tested:
import photos pil_image = photos.capture_image() # returns a PIL Image import smtplib # for sending an email from email.mime.image import MIMEImage from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart import io # Create the container email message. me = 'your email' msg = MIMEMultipart() msg['Subject'] = 'your subject' msg['From'] = me msg['To'] = me msg.preamble = 'your text' # attach photo to mail buf = io.BytesIO() pil_image.save(buf, format='JPEG') photo_data = buf.getvalue() img = MIMEImage(photo_data) msg.attach(img) # Send the email via our own SMTP server. s = smtplib.SMTP('your smtp server') s.sendmail(me, me, msg.as_string()) s.quit()
@cvp thanks I will try this and the other suggestion and let you know. Thanks.

@cvp, Caution about leaving io.BytesIO() open after you are done with them. In a memory constrained environment like Pythonista and with large objects like images, running out of RAM can be a problem.
# attach photo to mail buf = io.BytesIO() pil_image.save(buf, format='JPEG') photo_data = buf.getvalue() # might be safer rewritten: with io.BytesIO() as buf: pil_image.save(buf, format='JPEG') photo_data = buf.getvalue()

#converts image to bytes and create mime image for mime email. with io.BytesIO() as buf: req_photo.save(buf,format='JPEG') sent_img = buf.getvalue() img_sent = MIMEImage(sent_img) # And.. main_email.attach(img_sent)
I was using and I'm wondering if it's better to send pic via email with.
attachment = open('/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/', 'rb',) as f:
#attachment = open('/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/', 'rb',)
#Adds attachment and encoding for attachment.
#part = MIMEBase(sent_img, 'png')
#part = MIMEBase('application', 'octet-stream')
#part.add_header('Content-disposition', 'attachment: file' + sent_img)
@resserone13 Oups 😬 no idea
