The problem with the Google camera port to other devices
Google’s camera is one of the best that can be installed on any mobile that supports it. Normally it is necessary to root to have it, although in cases like the Xiaomi Mi A1 you can have the GCam without root. Be that as it may, by installing it, the processing of your mobile photos will improve to unsuspected levels, in addition to gaining a great portrait mode in both the rear camera and the front camera.
What problems are we talking about then in this article? From the file management that the application does. Rather than simply adding the photos taken in portrait mode to the same root Gallery folder, add them each in individual folders. Also, selfie photos are sometimes reversed, which some people may not like. GCam Tool takes care of solving all these problems.
How to fix Google camera port
GCam Tool is an application that is available for free in the Play Store. It is currently in version 2.0 and it is to be assumed that its development will not stop, in order to fix some problems that may appear with the Google camera ports. However, it fails to achieve the results offered by UltraCam, the improved version of GCam.
As you can see in the image above, the app is quite simple. It has a first button to Activate its operation, since the idea is that it always works in the background and you don’t worry. Button Batch Move It is used to move old folders with photos that you have already taken, while in the Settings you can set the input and output folders, as well as the photos you want to move. Of course, there are two Pro functions upon payment of € 0.99 within the application: rotate the selfie photos and delete the empty folders that are left behind.
With all this, you get a tool that perfectly complements the Google camera ported to other devices. The fact of being able to choose the output folder even allows you to automatically move the photos from this camera to the SD card, a function that simply does not exist in the app.
