Delete photo in open camera

hie, i can t succeed in deleting photo in open camera v1.46.i have to use galery to delete photos. In open camera i haven t got menu to delete immediately the photo.
Is it normal ?



yes it is. the only thing you can to with the picture is sharing or printing but no deletion. Therefore you have to use an other app. It dump , I know

ok thx a lot
but why this choice ?
can you advise me an other app ?

You can use ‘simple camera’ but ‘open camera’ is the better app with better pictures.

Is it really so much work to delete the unwanted photos later via gallerie ?

And if you are using ‘Gallery’ app for opening thd camera, you need one step less for deletion the photo

i found the option that allow me to delete the photo just after it will be taken
“Plus de parametre” > “Mettre en pause après la prise de photo”


Hi, I think it would be easier to have a bucket button just near the share icon at the bottom of the image.

Hi everyone.

I’ve posted the same suggestion on another post, but I’ll put it here for everyone’s convenience.

I’m currently using Open Camera v1.49.1, in Android 11.

I found a way to delete the photos in the Open Camera app.

  • In the Open Camera app, tap the ‘view photos’ button on the bottom right
  • Once you are viewing the photos itself, just pinch the screen (two fingers slide towards each other)
  • It will zoom out and will show other photos on the sides.
  • You can swipe left or right to choose the photos you want to delete
  • Once you found the photo you want to delete, you can just swipe up or down to delete it.
  • If you accidentally deleted a photo, you can undo the action by tapping the undo button on the bottom right

This works for my phone. Your mileage may vary.

Hope this helps.
