Why do photos taken with the in-app Camera feature not save to Photo Library?

While using the Camera icon on the Annotation Toolbar, photos taken from within the app are instantly imported into Scriptation. In some cases this ease of use is an ideal time saver, but it's important to understand that these newly taken photos do not save to the device's Photo Library.

This is due to operating system restrictions, and is an issue facing all PDF annotation apps.

If it's important for a particular photo to be saved to the Camera Roll for future use or sharing outside of your script, use the device's native Camera function instead, and then insert the photo from Photo Library.

TIP: Looking to import photos from outside the Photo Library? Try tap + drag with iOS 15.
