    Camera Widget

    I have created a widget that will instantly take a picture without bringing the camera screen up. Then save to gallery in a tasker created folder. Only problem i have, it asks you to give the picture a name. After the first use of the widget, the name is already used and does not save.

    I would like to save file as 1.jpg. Next time widget is used save as 1.jpg, if 1.jpg is used then incriment to 2.jpg and so forth. Any help would be appriciated

    Camera

    Taking the photo i can set up.
    New widget then media action, then photo. This is where filename is required. Using the option discrete will allow it to take photo without bringing camera app up.

    I used Photo Series instead of photo. For filename I just used tasker. Doing it this way, all of the photos show up grouped together in gallery and they all increment properly.

    B. Turn the screen brightness to Auto

    Does anyone know how to get sunrise / sunset information from the phone or internet to use as a parameter in Tasker?

    Thanks,
    Hey tom,
    Don't know if anybody got back to you... not sure if there is some kind of http get u can pull from weather sites about sunrise but why don't u just...

    Profile Day
    Two contexts
    Time 7:30am-5:00pm
    State - power - source any
    Action
    Display - brightness - drag slider to full
    Maybe add an exit task for auto brightness?

    Profile Night
    Same thing just change times
    And use display - auto brightness

    u can just change the times as seasons go by with clicking on the context and editing it.
    U prob figured all this out already.
    Tommyz,
    I think I have an idea on how to make it adjust to sunrise and sunset. I will program and test it today and let you know.
    I have a task that gets the sun rise and set times.

    Thanks,
    Sunrise and Sunset times - Tasker Wiki

    This will only set the %SUNRISE and %SUNSET variables, you can then use them in any profile you want just make sure to set a profile to run the task at least once a day for accurate information.

    Thank you very much. I have a very busy weekend, so I will have to figure out how to use this next week.

    Thanks again for the hard work!

    What does the new update mean as far as From-To and Repeat tasks? It says they are treated as events now? Not sure I understand what that means and whether it'll affect my profiles which have time contexts...

    It will only affect your profiles that have the From and To times equal.

    So if you have a profile that goes from 10.00 to 10.00 it will be treated as an event. Any others are not affected.
